Actress Danielle Brooks is expecting her first child!

The “Orange Is The New Black” star shared the exciting news on Instagram with her followers.

“So elated to finally share this news with you all. I’m happily pregnant! @Clearblue#ClearblueConfirmed #clearbluepartner,” the mom-to-be told her fans.


It’s incredible to see Danielle embarking on this new stage of life, especially considering just a few years ago, the 29-year-old expressed her frustrations with dating.

“My dating game is slow as of now,” the Broadway star told Page Six back in 2017.  “I know that I am on TV, and you think that it would be better, but I do not know what I am putting off. I am still single.”

But the tides quickly changed for the actress. Danielle debuted her beau on Instagram last Valentine’s Day, sharing a gorgeous photo of herself in a gown with her dapper boyfriend.

“What I’ve always imagined love to feel like… ♥️,” she said at the time.

Her man, who she calls “D,” can be spotted in a couple of the ingenue’s social media posts.

“True love is when your partner agrees to wear a hairnet to ride go-carts. ❤️ #valentinesday Love you D,” the Georgia native captioned an adorable photo of herself with her partner a few months ago.


Love looks good on you! Congrats, Danielle!
