AceShowbiz - Broadway star Santino Fontana had two reasons to celebrate his win at the Tony Awards on Sunday, June 09, as he shared his excitement at becoming a first-time father.
The 37-year-old took home the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical prize for his performance in "Tootsie", based on Dustin Hoffman's 1982 movie about a struggling actor who dons drag to land a top gig on a soap opera.
And, as he stepped onstage at New York City's Radio City Music Hall, Fontana gave a sweet shout out to his actress wife Jessica Hershberg, revealing they are expecting a daughter.
After thanking his parents and sister, he turned to Jessica and said, "My wife, I love you. Just know this wouldn't be possible, nor would it be worth it without you or our baby girl that will be coming, and I can't wait for her to come."
It's not yet known when Hershberg is due.
The couple wed in 2015 after four years of dating.
