Actor Patrick J. Adams and his wife Troian Bellisario have welcomed a baby girl to the world and shared the news with an adorable picture on Instagram.
News broke that the couple were expecting their first child in August but there was speculation months before that Troian was pregnant. Many thought that you could see a little baby bump when the couple attended Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding back in May.
Five months on the couple have finally welcomed their baby girl to the world and each confirmed the happy news on their own social media profiles with the same picture of their daughter’s tiny hand holding onto their fingers.
In his post Patrick, who starred as Meghan Markle’s love interest in the hit US show Suits, wrote: ‘The world just got 8lbs heavier. Thank you to everyone who fought for and protected our privacy during this incredible and beautiful time in our lives.
‘Everyone is happy and healthy and loving every moment of this. I could not be more excited to bring a baby girl into this world at this moment. We will raise her to be powerful, to always speak her mind and heart and to live without fear. It’s a brand new day and a brave new world and they are both beautiful.’
Troian, who is best known for her role in Pretty Little Liar’s, wrote a similarly lengthy post where she thanked everyone around for respecting her family’s privacy and she especially thanked Patrick for his support.
She wrote: ‘I cannot express how grateful I am. To the people who have protected us and kept our growing family safe and respected our privacy. To our tribe for expanding with grace and exponential amounts of love.
‘To my @halfadams for being so supportive during every moment of my pregnancy and her birth. And to whatever incredible force of fate that brought this baby girl into our lives.’
Finishing her post Troian gushed: ‘I couldn’t be more proud to be her mother. To bring a new girl into this world and to do my best to raise her to be kind, strong and whatever the heck she wants to be.’
The couple’s posts have been inundated with well wishes and Troian’s post alone has over a million likes.
Congratulations to the couple!
