Lakeith Stanfield and Xosha Roquemore are parents!

The Mindy Project and Atlanta stars welcomed their first child together earlier this month.

“Mom,” Roquemore captioned a Twitter photo —which she subsequently deleted — of herself nursing her newborn. On Tuesday, she shared a snap of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie‘s latest, Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions, with a peek at baby’s head in the corner.

Roquemore, 32, announced her first child on the way via Instagram in March, sharing a series of photos showing off her baby bump and captioning it, “I am WOMBMAN. #internationalwomensday.”

The actress and Stanfield, 25, previously revealed their happy news in January while posing together at the Sundance Film Festival.

Roquemore also attended the Essence 10th Annual Black Women in Hollywood awards gala in late February, cradling her growing belly in a fitted minidress with long sleeves and a star print.

The then-parents-to-be were the guests of honor at a baby shower — complete with gold balloons spelling out “BABY” — in the spring, from which Roquemore shared multiple snaps on May 1.
