Riverdale star Vanessa Morgan gave birth to a son this week.
Vanessa Morgan, 28, welcomed her first baby with Michael Kopech, her estranged husband. E! News reported that Vanessa and Michael are both very thrilled about the baby boy.
Vanessa’s new love!
Vanessa Morgan, the Canadian actress, who plays the cool character of Toni, had announced her pregnancy back in July 2020. She had shared a series of photos and videos from her gender reveal party. She captioned it, “Exciting news… I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January 💙” She added that her unborn son had brought her so much happiness. She could not wait to meet him!
She had also mentioned, “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 every day to be the best mommy I can be.”
Michael Kopech, Morgan’s estranged husband, was notably not present in her post, which caused major speculation amongst fans that maybe they were separated. The Chicago Tribune stated that Michael Kopech was divorcing Vanessa on June 19th, weeks after the announcement of the pregnancy, in Texas. The couple was married for six months before he filed for a divorce.
Riverdale Co-star has Vanessa’s back!
Madelaine Petsch, Morgan’s Riverdale co-star who plays Cheryl, Toni’s girlfriend has defended her when there were backlash and negative comments about her divorce. Madelaine said, “Honestly if I see one more comment like this, I’ll lose it. Vanessa is a beautiful mother-to-be and the hate and disrespect I’m seeing on this post about her bringing a new life into this world are disgusting.” She commented this as a response to a negative comment from a follower.
Vanessa clearly is loved not only by her close friends but also by her fans!
