Gina Rodriguez gives birth and welcomes her first child with husband Joe LoCicero
Gina Rodriguez has officially welcomed someone amazing: her first child!
A rep for the Jane the Virgin star confirmed to PopSugar that she gave birth to husband Joe LoCicero’s first baby. No other details were announced, such as the baby’s name or gender. The couple also did not share any further details. Page Six on Saturday obtained photos of Rodriguez walking around Los Angeles with the little one strapped to his chest in a baby carrier.
In July, on Rodriguez’s 38th birthday, fans learned that the performer was pregnant with her first child. As she captioned her Instagram announcement, “This birthday is different.”
In the months since, the performer has been sharing snapshots throughout her pregnancy, including a photo from her romantic outdoor maternity shoot with LoCicero. In early December, she posted more photos of herself outdoors, her growing baby bump on full display.
The couple celebrated three years of marriage this year after getting married in May 2019. “With that one kiss, we had 100 new family members” my 9-year-old niece Mia ❤️Thanks to my mother-in-law for the wedding of my dreams. And the village that helped her!” the actress wrote on Instagram at the time, confirming their nuptials. “May 4, 2019 was absolute MAGIC. To my husband Joseph, I am yours forever.”
In honor of their anniversary, Rodriguez wrote to his former Jane the Virgin co-star in a social media tribute in May, “3 years of marriage to my best friend. You’re home.”
As for their baby on the way, the mom-to-be told ET in August, “I’m so excited about it. I feel so, so thrilled.”
At the time, the future star was in preparation mode. “I take intense prenatal classes, working on that pelvic floor,” she told ET. “My husband is training to be a doula, my doula. He really is on the next level.”
