Kirke announced their baby boy’s arrival on Sunday.
Badgley and Kirke married back in 2017. Kirke, a singer and doula, confirmed on Sunday that she is actually “40 days postpartum.” This means that she actually gave birth to the baby boy back in August.
Kirke revealed their baby’s arrival on Instagram this week. Although the baby’s name is still unknown, Kirke did share the family’s first photo together on her Instagram Story.3rd wedding anniversary. In the post, she revealed that she has suffered two previous miscarriages.
“On the road again,” she shared. “Pregnancy after loss is a whole other thing. After two miscarriages in a row, we were ready to call it. I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done. As a birth attendant, I’ve seen and heard it all. It takes everything I’ve got to detach lovingly from the losses I’ve been present for and be in my own experience.”
Kirke is also the mother to Cassius Riley from her previous relationship with musician Morgan O’Kane.
“When I was pregnant at 25, I knew nothing,” she continued. “I had no community. I dove in blissfully unaware about birth and its mysteries. Now, with 10 years worth of experience to pull from, I treasure my birth community and the knowledge I have. You’re already teaching us how to stay in the day in a way we’ve never had to, little one. Thank you.”
Congrats to Domino Kirke and Penn Badgley!
