"I predict I’m going to be a MOMMY"

If you watched the newly-released trailer for the final season of Orange Is The New Black (OITNB) you'll know that things are not looking so great for the leading ladies of the iconic series. 

In real life, however, that thankfully does not seem to be the case. Especially for stand-out star, Danielle Brooks.

In addition to her thriving career, an abundance of talent and tendency to be an all-around phenomenal being, Brooks has announced that she's also going to be a mum. 

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday local time, the 29-year-old actor and singer shared that she is pregnant with her first bub. 

"So elated to finally share this news with you all. I’m happily pregnant," she wrote in the caption.

In a series of updates to her Instastory, she went on to share that she's five months in, meaning mini-Taystee should be joining us around November this year. 


While Brooks is quite private about her private life, she has posted about the man in her life on social media in the past. For Valentine's Day, she shared a sweet dedication to him with a black and white photo and a short, but adorable caption:

"True love is when your partner agrees to wear a hairnet to ride go-carts. #valentinesday Love you D," she wrote. 

The update is about as exciting as they get and Brooks' OITNB castmates were quick to jump into the comments section to congratulate her. 

"Whoa whoa!!! Congratulations!!!" Wrote Uzo Aduba.

"Omg girl I got chills!! So happy for you baby girl. Congratulations," shared Jackie Cruz.

"Daniiiiiiii," wrote an excited Natasha Lyonne.
