Riverdale star Vanessa Morgan is expecting her first child husband Michael Kopech!

The 28-year-old actress revealed the news on Friday on Instagram with pictures from a gender reveal party where she announced that she’s expecting a boy.

“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 wrote. “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 continued. “It’s almost like eveything [sic] I thought mattered in this life has completely changed.. We’re here for such a greater purpose and life is so precious.”

Morgan also addressed her baby in her Instagram post. “I can’t believe how much growth & strength you’ve already given me as your mom. It’s like God knew I needed you, my angel. The universe works in mysterious ways but always times everything the way it was meant to be,” she wrote. “Lil one you were made with so much love & already exude a light so strong it warms my belly. Thank you God for this blessing ☺️ I’m just so happy & can’t wait to dedicate everyday to being the best mommy I can be 💙.”

She concluded her post with a line from Robert Munsch’s I Love You Forever: “I’ll love you forever I’ll like you for always as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be 🎶’ – if you know you know #preggers 🤰🏽 👶🏼.”

The baby news comes just six months after she tied the knot with Kopech at the Walton Historic House in Florida. Just 40 guests attended, including Morgan’s costars, Skeet Ulrich, Drew Ray Tanner, and Madelaine Petsch.
