This month, the Southside With You star welcomed a baby girl into the world. She shared the pregnancy announcement in August and intentionally kept the news under wraps. “She’s my first child, and I wanted to experience every moment of this pregnancy for myself and enjoy it without everybody else being in it with me,” Sumpter shared with Fit Pregnancy and Baby.

The Have and Have Not’s actress took to Twitter to share much appreciation and sentiment with parents and caregivers.

Congratulations on you new bundle of joy!
