“Was debating keeping this part of my life hidden but I knew people would see pictures eventually with my belly. And I wanted you guys to hear it from me,” she began in an Instagram slideshow. “I do want to keep this chapter of my life private but did want to be the first to share the news.”
“I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January,” Morgan continued. “It’s almost like everything I thought mattered in this life has completely changed. We’re here for such a greater purpose and life is so precious.”
“It’s like God knew I needed you, my angel”
The actress also went on to directly address her baby in the heartfelt post. “I can’t believe how much growth & strength you’ve already given me as your mom. It’s like God knew I needed you, my angel. The universe works in mysterious ways but always times everything the way it was meant to be. Lil one you were made with so much love & already exude a light so strong it warms my belly. Thank you God for this blessing. I’m just so happy & can’t wait to dedicate everyday to being the best mommy I can be 💙,” she added.
To conclude her emotional post, Morgan included a quote from the beloved children’s book, Love You Forever by Robert Munsch. “I’ll love you forever I’ll like you for always as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be. 🎶’ If you know you know #preggers 🤰🏽 👶🏼.”

Morgan gave fans a glimpse of the gender reveal party which was a close family gathering. Pink and Blue dominated the party decor with plenty of baby themed treats, balloons and cheeky cupcake decorations that read, ‘Here for the sex.’
Vanessa and Michael’s Wedding Ceremony
Morgan’s pregnancy announcement comes six months after she tied the knot with her beau. The couple wed in an intimate ceremony at the Walton Historic House in Florida. Kopech, who is a Pro Baseball pitcher for the Chicago White Sox, proposed to Morgan in July of 2019, during a trip to Havasu Falls, Arizona.
The private affair saw only about 40 of their closest friends and family. Including Morgan’s costars, Skeet Ulrich, Drew Ray Tanner and Madelaine Petsch. Petsch, who plays Morgan’s on-screen girlfriend, on Riverdale, was one of the bridesmaids for the ceremony.
