You understand you like this news: Jessica Szohr is formally a mother!
The Gossip Girl alum, who unforgettably depicted Vanessa Abrams throughout the series, has actually invited her very first kid, a child called Bowie Ella Richardson. “Added a little special sweetness to our family and some new directions to our journey on 1-11-21,” Szohr captioned an image of her newborn’s hands. “This journey with Brad and Lexi has been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. To then create a human that is absolutely perfect in our eyes and put a feeling in my heart I didn’t know existed is beyond words. I have all the feels and she is really something special.”
The starlet broke the news to Upper East Siders—and fans all over the world—on Instagram back in September 2020 with a child bump picture, validating she and sweetheart Brad Richardson were anticipating their very first kid together. If it wasn’t currently evidenced by Szohr’s facial expression, she captioned the smiling shot of herself, “Full of joy!”
That was just the start of child bump images from the star. In December, the mom-to-be nestled her growing tummy while worn a pink flower gown—which functioned as an idea. “We can’t wait to meet you, baby girl!,” she captioned the shot, at the same time exposing the child’s sex.
When it came time to ring in 2021, the expectant star reviewed a memorable year. “My 2020 in review: No resolutions achieved. (I blame COVID),” Szohr composed on Instagram in a Dec. 30 post. “However, @brichrdson15 and I did make a little human. Still in awe of the transformation my body has gone through during pregnancy. Simply amazing the power of a woman’s body!”
