Penn Badgley and his wife Domino Kirke are having a baby after suffering from two miscarriages.
The YOU star’s wife revealed the exciting news on Instagram on Monday along with a photo of her baby bump. Kirke wrote, “On the road again… pregnancy after loss is a whole other thing. After two miscarriages in a row we were ready to call it. I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done.”
“As a birth attendant, I’ve seen and heard it all,” she added. “It takes everything I’ve got to detach lovingly from the losses I’ve been present for and be in my own experience.”
The doula also wrote about her 10-year-old son Cassius with ex-husband, “When I was pregnant at 25, I knew nothing. I had no community. I dove in blissfully unaware about birth and its mysteries. Now, with 10 years worth of experience to pull from, I treasure my birth community and the knowledge I have.”
The 36-year-old concluded, “You’re already teaching us how to stay in the day in a way we’ve never had to, little one. Thank you.”
Penn Badgley and Kirke started dating back in 2014 and got married in 2017.
Back in December, the 33-year-old actor wished his wife a happy birthday with an emotional post. He wrote, “Happy birthday, Dom. A super-brief review of your invisible qualities: A truly radiant soul, you seem to spark alight almost everyone you meet, like a 99% success rate. It’s really impressive, and quite mysterious. You encourage others to be honest, and brave, and gentle, and expansive.”
Also adding, “Your great capacity for empathy is obvious, something anyone can get warm by like a glowing stove. Your desire to be of service to others is miraculous. It is in your DNA. In pictures as a very young child, you exude it—a great care and sweetness; an invitation. You make others happy by you. For me, it is a joy to witness you when you are happy. For you, I always hope to be a source of joy. I’m really glad we’re married.”
Congratulations to the parents to be!
