“Queen & Slim’ star Jodie Turner Smith and her husband, former “Dawson’s Creek” star Joshua Jackson, recently welcomed their first child, according to People.
“Both mother and baby are happy and healthy,” reps for the couple told People Magazine.
Earlier this month, Jodie shared a beautiful maternity picture describing her journey into motherhood.
“A fantastic voyage that begins in wonder and transformation,” she wrote on her IG page. “I will never forget how this felt and now won’t soon forget how it looked.”
The couple first revealed the big pregnancy news when they stepped out together in Los Angeles back in January when Jodie flaunted her baby bump in a form-fitting dress.
Two months later, on International Women’s Day, Jodie announced that they were expecting a daughter.
“Favourite moments with baby,” she captioned an Instagram video that showed her stomach moving as her daughter kicked around inside. “Can you see her dancing in there? Every time I try to record she stops.”
Joshua said he always had a hunch their child would be a girl. “My family doesn’t really have boys, so I knew,” he said during a March interview with Access, saying his extended family was “85 to 90 percent female.”
There was obvious concern about Jodie’s safety in regard to the coronavirus as her due date approached.
“Obviously, it’s a bit stressful right now and we’re just trying to figure out how to be smart about being quarantined,” Joshua said during a video interview with “Good Morning America.” “The medical system right now is a little bit difficult, so we’re figuring it out day by day.”
“But she’s healthy and the baby’s healthy, so that’s important,” he added.
We reported back in December that the couple tied the knot just a few months after going public with their relationship on the red carpet.
They were rumored to have been dating since at least November 2018.
