Back in July, the actress revealed she was expecting her first child.

“So elated to finally share this news with you all,” she wrote on social media. “I’m happily pregnant!”

The Tony Award nominee opened up in October about her pregnancy, and how it changed her perspective on life.

“This moment is sacred. This moment is about birth and RE-birth. This moment is discovering new parts of myself that I never knew existed before. This moment is about gaining clarity on what I will or will not except so that when my daughter watches me, she is clear on who she is and what she believes,” she wrote on IG. “This moment is understanding what’s worth my energy and what is not. This moment is unapologetically leaning on those that truly understand the definition of family and friendship. This moment is about experiencing all that life has to offer me as a woman. I’m living and basking in the right now! And it feels damn good.”

Congratulations on your new addition!
