Leslie Odom Jr. and Nicolette Robinson Announce Arrival of Second Child with Charming Baby Pics

Congratulations are in order for Leslie Odom Jr. and Nicolette Robinson!

The Broadway couple welcomed their second child into the world last week, and they made the announcement with some charming family photos. In an adoring post, Hamilton star Odom said, "More life! One whole week with our Abe. Watching Nicolette give birth to these kids...? Simply, the bravest acts I’ve ever witnessed from a foot away. I love you, sweetheart and I am in awe. Our little family bursts at the seams with joy! And gratitude. Able Phineas 3/25/21 ♥️ More life."

Able, or "Abe" for short, is the second child between the theatric pair. Their daughter, Lucille Ruby, will turn 4 later this month, and she is seen giddily holding her new baby brother while sporting a sparkly pink and silver princess crown. In the other two photos, Able is seen resting in his crib, as well as in his mother's arms.

Loved ones shared their excitement for the family, like former Hamilton actor Ephraim Sykes, who said, "Congratulations yall!!!!" Emily in Paris actress Ashley Park commented a series of heart emojis and called them "The most GORGEOUS AND GLOWING FAM."

Robinson's pregnancy was announced back in November, when Odom shared an image saying, "Lots of reasons to celebrate over here. Lots of reasons for hope too. Baby boy and mama are doing swell. Praying for him and all the little ones on the way! The new class!!...We’ll make it right for you." Robinson had also shared the news, saying, "Sweet baby boy, we cannot wait to meet you. More reasons to love, to live, to connect, to pave the way for you and other little ones arriving in this world."

Odom and Robinson have been married since 2012. They met on the set of Once on This Island and started dating soon after the show ended. More recently, the duo starred together in One Night in Miami... for which Odom received two Academy Award nominations (for Best Supporting Actor and Best Original Song).

Talk about a romance for the stages.
