'Gossip Girl's Jessica Szohr Reveals She's Pregnant With Her First Child
Listen up, Upper East Siders: One more Gossip Girl alum will soon join the new mom club now that actress Jessica Szohr has revealed she's pregnant and expecting her first child with her boyfriend, professional hockey player Brad Richardson.
The mom-to-be revealed the big news in an Instagram post on Wednesday, sharing a photo of herself grinning from ear-to-ear with Richardson staring at her growing bump. "Full of joy!" she captioned the sweet black and white snapshot.
Richardson, who plays hockey for the Arizona Coyotes, and Szohr have been dating since last year, according to E! News. According to Us Weekly, Richardson is already a seasoned dad as he shares a daughter with his ex-wife, Lauren Hunt.
While Szohr revealed that she's over the moon about her baby-to-be, she didn't share any other key details, like when she's due or if they know the sex of the baby. And it's probably safe to say that she won't share too much about her pregnancy. The actress told HollywoodLife in February 2019 that she is a private person. "There's just a space of like...when you are home with your life, you just want your space with that person," she told the site. "And it's totally fine if people want to share their things. There's no right or wrong to any of it. But I like my privacy."
Szohr joins a few of her Gossip Girl costars who have also welcomed new additions to their families recently. Leighton Meester and husband Adam Brody revealed in September that they recently welcomed their second child. And Szohr's former on-screen best friend, Penn Badgely, recently welcomed his first child with wife, Domino Kirke. And just last year, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds welcomed their third child together.
If this was happening back in 2007, Gossip Girl would certainly have their hands full. Xoxo.
