“My heart has melted into a billion pieces a thousand times already,” she wrote next to the black and white photo of her holding her child.
“We have been blessed with the greatest joy of our lives, our baby boy. Welcome to the world Peanut, your parents love you beyond measure and you are already my little dreamboat. My heart has been stolen!”
Yvonne married her boyfriend of eight years, actor and producer Tim Loden, last year and despite being low-key about her relationship, Yvonne could barely contain her excitement when she discovered she was pregnant.
"I am very excited to finally be able to share my special news—I'm going to be a Mama!" she wrote on Instagram. "So very exciting to watch and feel this little peanut growing every day!"
Yvonne used her social media account to keep fans updated during the pregnancy with pictures of her growing bumps and tales of her cravings, before unwittingly revealing the sex of their child at the Emmy Awards last month.
"I'm just gonna hold him in there hope for the best," she told E!’s Giuliana Rancic. "I just let it slip earlier didn't I?" she added. "Breaking news!"
And she understands the irony of her pregnancy while playing a character in the Handmaid’s Tale who struggles to conceive. She even tried to hide the early stages of her pregnancy while filming the show.
"It was quite interesting hiding the pregnancy actually,” she reveals. "People thought I had the flu. They were scared to come near me."
While she is yet to reveal her baby boy’s name, she can now celebrate his safe arrival.
Blessed be the fruit!
