Troian Bellisario and Patrick J. Adams Just Welcomed a Baby Girl
Troian Bellisario has welcomed her first child into the world! The former Pretty Little Liars star took to Instagram on Monday, October 8, to surprise her fans with the news that she and her husband, Patrick J. Adams, are now the proud parents of a baby girl.
The actress, who kept her pregnancy tightly under wraps, posted a photo of her hand encircling her newborn daughter’s, which appears to be holding onto Adams’ finger. “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,” she wrote. “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.”
The Feed actress went on to share her hopes for her first child. “I couldn’t be more proud to be her mother,” she continued. “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.”
