Danielle Brooks Is Pregnant With Her First Child

Orange Is the New Black Star Danielle Brooks Is Pregnant — See Her Announcement

Orange Is the New Black may be entering its final season soon, but there's an even more exciting new journey on the horizon for one of the show's stars. Danielle Brooks, who plays Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson on the Netflix series, announced on July 2 that she's going to be a mom!

The actress revealed in a sponsored Instagram post for Clearblue that she's expecting her first child. "So elated to finally share this news with you all. I'm happily pregnant," she captioned a photo of herself holding a pregnancy test. Brooks also took to her Instagram Story to show off her growing baby bump and to reveal that she's currently five months along — which means her due date is likely sometime in early November.

Congratulations to the new mom-to-be!
