“Riverdale” star Vanessa Morgan‘s best friend has her back after her husband, Michael Kopech, pulled the plug on their marriage just days after she revealed she’s expecting her first child. Morgan’s onscreen lover and real-life BFF Madelaine Petsch is fiercely defending her against Internet trolls who are flooding the star’s baby announcement with mean comments, including questioning who her unborn child’s father really is. The Chicago White Sox pitcher filed for divorce on June 19, just six months after saying “I do” to the CW star.
Despite Vanessa Morgan’s representative confirming to PEOPLE that Michael Kopech is the father of her child, the abrupt divorce left fans throwing out their own conspiracy theories on what went wrong. The most popular seems to be the speculation surrounding the identity of her baby daddy.
Vanessa Morgan announced she was expecting her first baby and it’s a BOY over the weekend. Michael Kopech did not appear in the gender reveal photos and she did not mention him in the caption of the announcement which raised red flags with fans.

Other fans were concerned about why Michael Kopech isn’t seen in the baby announcement. “Are you still with Michael?” one person asked to which another responded, “he filed for divorce.”
“Where is your husband?” asked another. But when someone instructed Vanessa Morgan “don’t disrespect out pitcher like that,” Madelaine Petsch went OFF. “honestly if I see one more comment like this I’ll lose it,” she fired back. “Vanessa is a beautiful mother to be and the hate and disrespect I’m seeing on this post about her bringing a new life into this world is disgusting,” she added.
At the time of this post, Vanessa Morgan has yet to comment on her divorce or respond to the haters.
