Uzo announced her pregnancy in June, showing off a growing baby bump at the 2023 Tony Awards. In an Instagram video featuring a tiny cute onesie, Aduba expressed her joy, saying, “What a blessing. My husband Robert and I are so happy to enter this next chapter together as parents. I am beyond excited. I get to be someone’s Mommy! I know as the three of us continue to grow, our only, ONLY goal will be to love you, little one. My goodness. Look what God has done.”
And in August, the star had an intimate baby shower surrounded by loved ones.
Congratulations to the happy family!
