Orange Is The New Black star Laura Prepon is expecting her second child with her husband, Ben Foster. The happy couple shared their exciting news on Instagram Thursday in a photo featuring their 2-year-old daughter, Ella.
“We are so excited to announce that our family is growing. Life is beautiful!” captioned Prepon.
Foster and his actress wife welcomed Ella in 2017. They made their red-carpet debut in October 2018 with Prepon wearing some nice bling on a very important finger. Oh yes, the ultra-private couple chose to reveal their engagement at their first public appearance.
They never actually confirmed the engagement, but her former costar and pal Danny Masterson did. He used a throwback photo of Hyde and Donna, their characters on That 70’s Show with the caption “This little baby just got engaged. Over/under on me crying at the wedding.”
Foster is also a longtime friend of The Ranch alum. Masterson was the one who introduced his two pals and the rest, as they say, is love history.
Months after fans were shocked to know Prepon and Foster were engaged, it was confirmed they were expecting their first child together. Sources confirmed the news after the two attended the Sundance Film Festival together in January 2017.
Prepon and Faster quietly tied the knot in June 2018. She chose to share they were wed with a black and white photo of the couple on Instagram.
“Just Married! Thank you for all the love and support. Wishing all of us the good stuff!” she captioned the picture letting her fans know she was a married lady.
Balancing her career and motherhood hasn’t been easy but Prepon is thankful for her amazing husband. Last year she spoke with The MOMS about how the couple put their family first, while still allowing Prepon and Foster to focus on their careers.
She explained one of them is always at home with Ella but there is truly no solution. Each family, parents, and situation is different, so they are simply trying to make it all work.
One thing the working mama does not tolerate is mom-shaming. She does not allow it in her life or her friends because there is no need for it.
Laura Prepon and her actor husband Ben Foster are expecting baby number 2. Congrats to the couple, as well as their daughter Ella who will soon be a big sister.
