Danielle Brooks’ baby is here, and she’s “perfect.”
At least that’s what the “Orange Is the New Black” star writes in a the caption of an Instagram photo of her newborn daughter.
Indeed, the little girl, who appears to be lying on her mom’s stomach, looks beautiful. And she has a full head of hair!
The baby was born on Nov. 16, according to Brooks’ Instagram post. “Orange” co-star Laverne Cox was among the hundreds of thousands of fans and friends to react to the post. “Congratulations darling,” Cox wrote. “You’re a mommy.”
Brooks, 30, who’s known for playing Taystee on the Netflix series, revealed in July that she was five months pregnant with her first child. The actress didn’t explicitly reveal the child’s gender at that time, but she did conspicuously wear pink shirts in posts announcing she was expecting.
The first-time mom has been sharing plenty of photos of herself and her growing belly on social media, and seems to have made the most of her pending motherhood. Brooks partnered with Clearblue in one of her pregnancy posts, and shared a photo about her maternity clothes from fashion company Universal Standard just this week.
But the post about her new baby, whose name has not yet been revealed, doesn’t appear to be sponsored. It’s just a black-and-white image of what looks like a healthy girl embracing her new mother.
“Thank you to everyone that has been so generous,” Brooks says in an Instagram story she published before giving birth. “This is a PSA for mothers and people who are expecting or have just given birth. … When you go to visit someone who just had a baby … help them.”
