“Orange is the New Black‘s” Danielle Brooks shared some big news with her Instagram family.
The 29-year-old actress – who is known for playing Tasha ‘Taystee’ Jefferson on the Netflix original series – is expecting her first child with her mystery beau.
Taking to her Instagram account, the brunette beauty uploaded a photograph of her holding a positive pregnancy test and wrote: “So elated to finally share this news with you all. I’m happily pregnant! @Clearblue #ClearblueConfirmed #clearbluepartner (sic).”
Danielle then went on her Instagram Stories to confirm that she is five months into her pregnancy before insisting that “when one chapter ends, another begins” – referring to “Orange is the New Black‘s” upcoming final season on July 26.
It’s not yet known whether Brooks and her partner – whose identity she has kept secret since they began dating – know the sex of their unborn tot.
Although she will have her hands full with her baby, she is adamant that she will have a “long future” in the fashion industry after she teamed up with Universal Standard to release her three-piece capsule titled Tria in 2017.
She recently told Teen Vogue: “To see them (merchandise) come to life and see women wear them and make them their own is one of the coolest feelings: an unexpected feeling that I never thought would come. I hope to do more of it because this is a really great balance for me, being that my first priority is acting. But getting to step into this world is something I hope to have a long future in as well.
“I’m so grateful that women are clinging to these three looks that I designed.”
