The Walking Dead actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan accidentally revealed the gender of his and Hilarie Burton’s new baby during a Supernatural convention this past Sunday.
The actor took to Instagram and shared a photo of his shocked face on stage after accidentally dropping the bombshell that the pair are expecting a baby girl. “Whoever took this picture?? Caught a moment… thank you. We shall cherish,” he captioned the candid shot. “I texted @hilarieburton right after I spilled the little girl beans… and, as usual… she was a rockstar. After all these years she’s come to expect me to be a dope… thank god she gets it, and loves me regardless.”
Morgan and the former One Tree Hill actress hinted the arrival of a second child during the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards where Burton debuted her growing baby bump. Dean Morgan placed his hand on his wife’s belly and made a variety of lighthearted surprised faces to hint at the pregnancy. Later, it was confirmed that the couple was expecting from Burton’s former One Tree Hill costar, Barbara Alyn Woods. She bumped into Morgan at the event and he revealed and confirmed the pregnancy news.
Morgan and Burton began dating in 2009 and have one child together, 7-year old Augustus. The couple tends to keep their relationship quite private, so their public debut of the baby bump came as quite the shock and a lovely surprise to fans and Emmy viewers!
