The Handmaid’s Tale and Orange is the New Black star Samira Wiley and her wife Lauren Morelli have welcomed their first child into the world.

The pair both shared the same photo on social media, showing the little one lying down with each hand holding one of theirs.

On Samira’s post, she wrote: “Happy 1st Mother’s Day to my beautiful wife, who four weeks ago today after laboring for almost 3 days gave birth to our first child – our gorgeous daughter, George.

“Welcome to the world, babygirl. We love you and we thank you for giving us the best 1st Mother’s Day two ladies could ask for. George Elizabeth 4.11.2021.”

Meanwhile, Lauren captioned her photo: “4 weeks ago today, our daughter came into the world and changed everything. We are so happy, so grateful, and so tired. George Elizabeth, 4.11.21.”

The pair announced their engagement in October 2016 and tied the knot in Palm Springs, California in March of the next year.
