‘OITNB’ Star Laura Prepon Just Welcomed Baby No. 2 & We Have the First Pic

Laura Prepon and her husband, Ben Foster, evened the playing field when it comes to their parent-child ratio.

The Orange Is the New Black star recently welcomed her second child, a baby boy whose name hasn’t been revealed (at least not yet). Prepon announced the exciting news on social media and posted a photo of herself kissing the newborn’s teeny hand.

She captioned the post, “Welcoming home our new bundle of love. Overwhelmed with gratitude.”

We first learned about Prepon’s pregnancy back in October 2019. The actress announced the news on her personal Instagram account by sharing a photo of her growing baby bump. The pic features her 2-year-old daughter, Ella, sitting on her belly.

She wrote, “We are so excited to announce that our family is growing. Life is beautiful! #knockedup.”

Prepon officially started dating Foster, who is also an actor, in 2016, though they had been friends since they were teenagers. In August 2017, they welcomed their firstborn child (Ella). The following year, the couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony.

Prepon is widely known for playing Alex Vause in Orange Is the New Black, but the Netflix show isn’t her only claim to fame. The actress first gained popularity in 1998 when she played Donna on the popular sitcom That ’70s Show. After the show wrapped, she went on to star in The KitchenThe Girl on the Train, The Hero and—of course—OITNB.

Cheers to growing families!
