The Riverdale actress dropped the bomb on her Instagram page. She shared photos and videos of the gender reveal party which revealed she was having a baby boy.
She also included a photo of her pregnancy tests that read positive the day she found out about her pregnancy.
Vanessa accompanied a heartwarming caption to the amazing news.
‘Was debating keeping this part of my life hidden but I knew people would see pictures eventually with my belly & I wanted you guys to hear it from me 🥰 I do want to keep this chapter of my life private but did want to be the first to share the news. I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January 💙 It’s almost like everything I thought mattered in this life has completely changed.. We’re here for such a greater purpose and life is so precious. I can’t believe how much growth & strength you’ve already given me as your mom. It’s like God knew I needed you, my angel.’
She went on to say: ‘The universe works in mysterious ways but always times everything the way it was meant to be. 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 💙 “I’ll love you forever I’ll like you for always as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be 🎶 “- if you know you know #preggers.’
This comes after Michael and Toni said I do in a resort in Homestead, FL.
