Danielle Brooks‘ bundle of joy has arrived! The Orange Is the New Black star, 30, gave birth to her first child — a daughter — with her boyfriend on Saturday, Nov. 16. Brooks announced the happy news on Monday, sharing a sweet black-and-white photo of her baby girl resting on her chest. “11.16.19 ️♾️ She’s perfect,” Brooks captioned the adorable image. The star did not share the baby’s name. The actress announced her pregnancy on July 2, holding up a positive Clearblue digital pregnancy test in her Instagram photo showing her sporting an open-mouthed grin. “So elated to finally share this news with you all. I’m happily pregnant!” she captioned it, adding the hashtags, “#ClearblueConfirmed” and “#clearbluepartner.” On her Instagram Story, Brooks shared a similar image and wrote, “When one chapter ends, another begins” — seemingly referring to OITNB’s seventh and final season, which dropped July 26 on Netflix. A second photo on her Story saw the then-mom-to-be posing with her shirt pulled up to show off her baby bump, where she shared she was 20 weeks along in her pregnancy.
