Penn Badgley & Domino Kirke Welcome Their First Child Together
After quietly welcoming their first child together more than a month ago, Domino Kirke announced in a sweet and artsy post on Instagram that she and her husband Penn Badgley are officially parents to a little boy.
On Sunday, Kirke shared a photo of a painting of a heart-shaped womb created with her placenta to announce the birth of their son and also revealed she was 40 days postpartum. "His heart shaped home #40dayspostpartum #placentaart," the birth worker and new mom captioned the photo.
Kirke — who shares a 12-year-old son named Cassius with former partner Morgan O'Kane, according to E! News — later took to her Instagram Story where she posted a photo of their newborn bundled in a blanket and napping peacefully beside her.
The arrival of the couple's newborn son comes months after Kirke shared on Instagram that she had previously suffered two miscarriages. "On the road again... pregnancy after loss is a whole other thing. After two miscarriages in a row we were ready to call it," Kirke wrote in February. "I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done."
Badgley and Kirke were first linked to each other in 2014, according to Harper's Bazaar, and dated for a few years before tying the knot in 2017. While Badgley has remained relatively quiet about his wife's pregnancy on social media, he shared a heartfelt birthday tribute post on Instagram last year. "You make others happy by you," he wrote. "For me, it is a joy to witness you when you are happy. For you, I always hope to be a source of joy. I'm really glad we're married."
And now that their little boy is here, surely Badgley is really glad to be starting this exciting chapter of parenthood with his wife.
