'You' Star Penn Badgley and Wife Domino Kirke Expecting First Child

February 11, 2020

Attention Upper East Siders, we have a baby on board.

“You” star Penn Badgley is going to be a dad.

The actor and his wife, Domino Kirke, announced that they are expecting their first child together.

Alongside a sweet peek of her baby bump on Instagram, Kirke opened up about the couple's multiple pregnancy losses and their struggle with fertility.

"On the road again... pregnancy after loss is whole other thing," she wrote. "After two miscarriages in a row we were ready to call it. I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done. As a birth attendant, I've seen and heard it all. It takes everything I've got to detach lovingly from the losses I've been present for and be in my own experience,” the “Girls” alum wrote.

These days Kirke works as a doula and explained she has much more knowledge than she did when she was “blissfully” unaware during her first pregnancy at 25.

She welcomed 10-year-old Cassius Riley in 2009 with ex Morgan O’Kane. "When I was pregnant at 25, I knew nothing. I had no community," she continued. "I dove in blissfully unaware about birth and its mysteries. Now, with 10 years worth of experience to pull from, I treasure my birth community and the knowledge I have."

Kirke ended her heartwarming post with a little note to her unborn child.

"You're already teaching us how to stay in the day in a way we've never had to, little one. Thank you,” she wrote.

Kirke and the former “Gossip Girl” actor wed in 2017 in a small Brooklyn courthouse ceremony.

Shortly after, Badgley officially became Cassius’ step-father, which Kirke said is “really nice,” according to US Weekly.
