2020 is bringing about a bundle of new blessings for married actors Leslie Odom Jr and Nicolette Robinson. The couple just announced that they’re expanding their family and will soon be welcoming a baby boy.

The announcement was made via Instagram on Monday (Nov. 9) in the form of family photos taken by photographer Phoebe Joaquin. The couple posed with their three-year-old daughter Lucille, who appears to be excited about becoming a big sister as she and dad rub mama’s belly.

“Lots of reasons to celebrate over here. Lots of reasons for hope too,” Odom captioned the photo. “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 also shared the happy news over on her page with a photo of Lucy embracing her baby bump, revealing that their son is due in March 2021. “Sweet baby boy, we cannot wait to meet you,” she writes. “More reasons to love, to live, to connect, to pave the way for you and other little ones arriving in this world…”

Odom, who is best known for playing Aaron Burr in the hit Broadway musical Hamilton, hopped on Instagram Live to do a Q&A with fans and revealed that they have chosen a name for their baby boy. He also says that parenthood has brought a “sharpeness and focus” to his life because “you know someone you care about is watching.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
