Baby George made her inaugural appearance on Mother’s Day! She’s the first child of Orange is the New Black writer Lauren Morelli and actress Samira Wiley, who currently stars in The Handmaid’s Tale.

The two-mom couple kept their pregnancy and birth under wraps and chose the holiday to make their baby announcement in a sweet Instagram post.

“Welcome to the world, babygirl. We love you and we thank you for giving us the best 1st Mother’s Day two ladies could ask for,” Wiley penned, noting that George was born Apr. 11.

Morelli shared the same photo on her feed with a caption that all new parents can relate to: “4 weeks ago today, our daughter came into the world and changed everything. We are so happy, so grateful and so tired.”

The couple has been married since 2017 and met in 2012 on the set of Orange Is the New Black, where Wiley played Poussey Washington. Morelli proposed to Wiley four years later and they tied the knot in the same location—Palm Springs, California. You couldn’t write a better script for this little family!
