Actor Melanie Lynskey has had a busy schedule both in and out of the spotlight in recent years. From her role as Shauna in Showtime's "Yellowjackets" to her performance in Hulu's "Candy" alongside Jessica Biel, the actor is a powerful force on screen. Outside of her packed work life, Lynskey is also a full-time mom to a daughter with husband Jason Ritter, whom she married in 2020.

Despite being a high-profile Hollywood actor, Lynskey has managed to keep her personal life out of the public eye. From time to time, however, she reveals small snippets of life with her daughter on social media. In March 2022, for example, she tweeted about a sweet exchange with her daughter, writing, "'You feel beautiful, and squishy! You don't even have bones. I want to cuddle you all day' - my daughter."

Here's everything we know about Lynskey's daughter and her life as a mom!

Neither Lynskey nor Ritter have shared the name of their daughter yet, but we do know that she was born in December 2018, according to a tweet from Lynskey herself. The actor announced the birth of her daughter on Twitter in January 2019 after nearly a month of keeping the news private. "We feel lucky to have been able to have our news just be for friends and family for a while, but I guess the story got out, so! Yes! @JasonRitter and I had a daughter in December. We love her so much; she's perfect," she tweeted.

Not much else is known about Lynskey's daughter; however, from time to time, the "Yellowjackets" star does share some of the moments she has with her on social media.
