It was a busy summer for former Facts of Life star Kim Fields. After giving birth to a son, Sebastian “Sam” Alexander Morgan, in early May, she tied the knot with her Broadway actor boyfriend, Christopher Morgan, in July.

Fields and Morgan were married July 23 by a longtime friend, Pastor Donnie McClurkin, in his church office. It was a small, private ceremony, with just mom, dad, baby and one other longtime family friend present.

In May, Morgan told PEOPLE that the couple waited to marry in order to focus on the pregnancy.

“I wanted to be married first, but when this came up, it was like, there’s no need to rush anything,” he said.

Fields, 38, added at the time: “We wouldn’t go into something like [having a baby] without knowing that we’re it for each other and we’re not going anywhere. These are life commitments.”
