Riverdale actress Vanessa Morgan, who plays Toni Topaz on the popular CW teen drama, has welcomed her first child, a baby boy, according to News, which reported that the 28-year-old star's estranged husband Michael Kopech was with the new mom.

Vanessa Morgan has reportedly given birth to a baby boy. The 28-year-old Riverdale star welcomed her first child with estranged husband Michael Kopech,  News reports. 

"Vanessa had the baby, and Michael is with her as well. They're both thrilled," a source tells the outlet, adding that the baseball player was by her side.

Morgan announced she was pregnant on July 24 on Instagram, and made no mention of Kopech, whom she married in January 2020. Days later, news broke that Kopech had filed for divorce from Morgan on June 19. Kopech, a professional baseball player, also took time off from playing for the Chicago White Sox this season due to "personal reasons."

Meanwhile, Morgan wrote of her pregnancy, "This little guy has already brought me so much happiness and a feeling of such a greater purpose. I cannot wait to meet you!! ... Lil one you were made with so much love & already exude a light so strong it warms my belly. Thank you God for this blessing ☺️ I'm just so happy & can't wait to dedicate everyday to being the best mommy I can be ♥️."

Morgan first announced her pregnancy in July with photos and videos from a party of close friends and family. Just days after she shared the exciting news, it was revealed that Kopech had filed for divorce after six months of marriage.

Kopech, 24, filed for divorce in his home state of Texas on June 19, The Chicago Tribune reported, citing court records. The documents were filed in Morris County and a hearing date was not listed, according to the outlet.

When Morgan announced her pregnancy, Kopech did not appear in any of the photos or videos shared on her social media accounts.

In October, she shared maternity photos showing off her baby bump on Instagram.

"I've never been more in love with my body for being able to grow & bring life into the world," she wrote.

Last month, on Dec. 18, she shared a photo of herself cradling her belly and sharing she was officially on maternity leave.

In August, the actress gave fans an update on her pregnancy by sharing a sonogram of her baby boy on the way. The tweet was Morgan's first social media post since news broke about her divorce from Kopech.

The actress celebrated her son on the way with a Halloween-themed baby shower in October, attended by several of her Riverdale castmates.

Dressed in a skintight black ensemble with a white skeleton image printed across her body, Morgan's look also featured blue butterflies floating around her stomach area — a clear nod to her baby boy. She accessorized her look with a painted skeleton face and a long blonde wig.

Morgan dressed up with her fellow Riverdale costars Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart and Madelaine Petsch, sharing a photo on her Instagram Story that showed the latter three dressed as Blossom, Buttercup and Bubbles from The Powerpuff Girls.

"Officially on maternity leave!!!! Ahh!! Feeling grateful to my showrunner & producers for being so accommodating & writing my pregnancy into the show!🤰🏽," she wrote. "Also proud of my body for allowing me to still work almost 9 months preggo. Now time to have a baby! 👶🏼 lol Happy Holidays everyone 🎄."

Cole Sprouse also attended the party dressed as the Man with the Yellow Hat from the Curious George books. He completed the look by wearing a stuffed monkey on his arm.
