Lin-Manuel Miranda and Vanessa Nadal Just Welcomed Baby #2
Lin-Manuel Miranda announced back in December, just weeks before his beloved abuela passed away, that he and his wife Vanessa Nadal were expecting their second child. Now the family’s healing can continue with the joyous arrival of baby number two.
The 38-year-old Hamilton creator shared the big news via Twitter, adding a very theatrical twist to his message: “Int. Hospital Room. Night. [The screams reach a delirious crescendo. FRANCISCO MIRANDA enters. He is 7 pounds and 13 ounces.] Intermission.”
That’s right! The little one is a baby boy, adorably named Francisco Miranda.
The Mary Poppins Returns star included a gorgeous black-and-white pic of his wife looking down at their newborn, who couldn’t possibly be any cuter. Seriously, is he smiling already?!
Int. Hospital Room. Night.
[The screams reach a delirious crescendo. FRANCISCO MIRANDA enters. He is 7 pounds and 13 ounces.]

Miranda and Nadal (a brilliant lawyer and scientist) are already the proud parents of son Sebastian, who was born in 2014. Anyone who follows the Broadway phenom on Twitter knows that he often shares peeks into their adorable (and oh-so-relatable) lives.
Miranda shares the highs of parenting…
This morning I got my son to eat a whole egg, so I am feeling very influential indeed.

…as well as the incredibly funny lows…
Side effect of Go, Dog, Go, the best book ever: Your son WILL tell total strangers on the bus that he does not like their hat.

…and the not-so-funny lows.
My son got a stomach bug and threw up ALL NIGHT!
His temp was 🔥!

And while it isn’t always easy…
Hey our son decided 3am-5am is the best time to party
Cool cool cool
I am a walking shambles

…it’s certainly worth it.
This morning my son is giving me a master class in how to fall, how to get up with a smile.
I learn from him every day.

I told my son I had a bad dream and he replied,
"Sebastian not scared of dinosaurs."
So there you have it. Let's go.

We’re sure life will be even more lively with two kiddos in the mix.
Congratulations to the growing family!
