Congratulations are in order for Orange Is the New Black and That ’70’s Show actress and husband Ben Foster who just welcomed their second child into the world. Prepon confirmed on her Instagram account that the duo welcomed their child safely, who is greeted by big sister Ella, who was welcomed into the family in August 2017. While there haven’t been many details regarding the new bundle of joy, like date of birth, gender, and name, Prepon looks to be in pure heaven by the looks of the social media post.
Prepon added a caption to the IG post saying, “Welcoming home our new bundle of love. Overwhelmed with gratitude.” The photo shows Prepon cradling the new baby who is wrapped tightly in a hospital blanket. It was only just back in October that Prepon confirmed her pregnancy in another IG photo of the mom holding daughter Ella, with a baby bump visible. Prepon captioned the pregnancy announcement saying, “We are so excited to announce that our family is growing. Life is beautiful!”
Prepon hasn’t been shy about showing off her baby bump on social media, with various posts since the announcement showing off her growing belly. Just earlier this month, the actress was seen on IG sitting in front of her laptop with a growing bump, as she worked on her new book titled You and I, As Mothers: A Raw and Honest Guide to Motherhood. The book showcases Prepon’s navigation of motherhood in an honest approach. It is slated to be released in April 2020.
Prepon and Foster have been together since 2016 as the pair was seen galavanting around New York City arm-in-arm. The relationship rumors began churning, despite the fact that the pair remained relatively quiet throughout that time. Foster, who is known for his film work in movies like The Punisher, X-Men: The Last Stand, Alpha Dog, and Lone Survivor, was previously linked on-and-off to veteran actress Robin Wright from early 2012 to late 2015. The pair was even engaged to be married at one point.
Meanwhile, Prepon, who rose to fame as Donna Pinciotti on the sitcom That ‘70s Show, has had quite the career, more recently with her portrayal of Alex Vause on the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black. Prepon has dated sporadically throughout the years, but confirmed in June 2017 that she and Foster were expecting their first child. They welcomed daughter Ella in 2017 and eventually married in June 2018. Congratulations to the happy couple and the expansion of their family!
