We know she's not actually the teenager she played on TV, but Heather Morris' announcement last Spring that she was pregnant still made us feel old as hell. Now, it's been announced that the former Glee star has had her baby. She may not be on the show anymore, but the former Brittany S. Pierce is now a momma, and boy is her kid cute. We wonder if he'll have her moves?
Morris — who in real life is 26 and has been dating boyfriend Taylor Hubbell since 2008 — welcomed a baby boy named Elijah Hubbell on Saturday. “I want to marry him so bad,” Heather said of Taylor in an interview with Fitness back in 2011. ”That’s what I really care about. I want to marry Taylor and have kids with him. I love acting, but if it affects my relationship, then I won’t continue doing it.”
Multiple people — including fellow Glee actors Jessalyn Gilsig and Naya Rivera, the latter of whom is also Morris' real-life best friend — have in the past expressed their excitement over her impending motherhood, stating that she'll make a great mother. “Oh, she’s going to be an amazing mother,” Gilsig said to PopSugar. “She’s a fantastic, fantastic woman. That’s a lucky baby.”
Now that it's no longer future-tense, Morris' brother has instagrammed a photo of the baby.
