The wait is finally over! Gina Rodriguez, the Jane the Virgin actress, and her husband Joe LoCicero have officially welcomed their first child together – a healthy baby boy!
The couple, who tied the knot in 2019, had been eagerly awaiting the arrival of their bundle of joy since Rodriguez announced her pregnancy back in July 2022. Celebrating her birthday on Instagram, Rodriguez revealed the exciting news that had fans everywhere cheering for the expectant parents.
In an exclusive interview, the actress shared her excitement about becoming a mother and the overwhelming feeling of being a superhero. “I feel like every day is bizarre and different, and I have so much appreciation for every human being that has brought a child onto this planet. Anytime I see somebody with a child, I’m like, ‘Congratulations, you’re a superhero,’ ” she exclaimed.
Rodriguez also talked about her upcoming journey as a mother, and how she hopes to keep her child’s imagination alive while navigating the real world. Drawing inspiration from her work on the Netflix series Lost Ollie, she explained, “I want to allow my child to live in those spaces, while also living in our culture that is real and of the flesh, and you have to play by certain rules. But how do you still keep that?”
We couldn’t be happier for the couple, who are now proud parents of their bouncing baby boy. Congratulations, Gina and Joe!
