Audra McDonald and Will Swenson Welcome a Baby Girl—See the Sweet Photo
Congratulations are in order for these Broadway vets: Audra McDonald and Will Swenson just welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Sally James.
“@thewillswenson and I are overjoyed to welcome Sally James McDonald-Swenson, born last night at 11:16pm,” the 46-year-old wrote on Twitter. “Our hearts are bursting.”
The Private Practice star shared the first photo of her baby girl’s adorable little toes on Thursday morning. According to People, Sally James is named after Swenson’s late mother, Sally, and McDonald’s late father, Stanley James.
The actress first announced her pregnancy back in May, writing, “Who knew that tap dancing during perimenopause could lead to pregnancy? Will and I are completely surprised—and elated—to be expecting a new addition to our family.”
While the pregnancy wasn’t expected, this isn’t the first child for either star. McDonald is mom to 15-year-old daughter Zoe Madeline, and 43-year-old Swenson is a father to two sons, 12-year-old Sawyer and 15-year-old Bridger.
We’re wishing all the best for this growing family!
