AceShowbiz - Vanessa Morgan has become a first-time mother. Seven months after revealing that she and Michael Kopech were expecting their first child together, the "Riverdale" star was reported to have given birth to their son with her now-estranged husband by her side.
Offering more details about the 28-year-old's baby delivery was E! News. A source told the outlet, "[She] had the baby, and Michael is with her as well. They're both thrilled." The new parents, however, are still keeping details of their baby boy to themselves, including the newborn's birth date and name.
"The Shannara Chronicles" actress went public with her pregnancy via Instagram back on July 24, 2020. "Was debating keeping this part of my life hidden but I knew people would see pictures eventually with my belly & I wanted you guys to hear it from me," she first wrote alongside photos and videos from a gender reveal party.
"I do want to keep this chapter of my life private but did want to be the first to share the news. I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January," she added. "It's almost like everything I thought mattered in this life has completely changed. We're here for such a greater purpose and life is so precious."
In December, Vanessa announced on Instagram that she was already on maternity leave from "Riverdale". She declared, "Officially on maternity leave!!!! Ahh!! Feeling grateful to my showrunner & producers for being so accommodating & writing my pregnancy into the show! Also proud of my body for allowing me to still work almost 9 months preggo. Now time to have a baby! lol Happy Holidays everyone."
Vanessa and Michael tied the knot on January 4, 2020 at the Historic Walton House in Homestead, Florida. However, the baseball star was unveiled to have filed for divorce from the actress after only six months of marriage. He allegedly submitted the papers on July 19 in Morris County, northeast Texas.
