Gina Rodriguez Welcomes Her First Child With Husband Joe LoCicero
Gina Rodriguez is officially a mom! A representative for Rodriguez confirmed to POPSUGAR that the “Not Dead Yet” star has welcomed her first child. She and her husband, Joe LoCicero, have yet to reveal the baby’s name or sex.
Neither Rodriguez nor her husband have shared the details surrounding their newborn’s arrival just yet. However, the actor did post a carousel of herself at “40 plus weeks” pregnant to her Instagram on Jan. 27. She captioned her post, “Just a few things I’ve been doing while 40 plus weeks pregnant. #notdeadyet #notUnpregnantYet #StopAskingMyDueDate Lets take some bets on what comes first, the tv show or the baby?!?!?”
Rodriguez first announced that she was expecting in her 38th birthday post on Instagram last July. She shared a sweet video of moments from throughout the year which culminated with her revealing a positive pregnancy test. “This birthday hits different,” she wrote at the time.
Both Rodriguez and LoCicero are first time parents. The couple first met on the set of “Jane the Virgin.” LoCicero also appeared in his wife’s films, “Miss Bala” and “Someone Great.”
In a January interview with The New York Times, she shared that Mumford and Sons would be heavily featured on her birth playlist. “I have a playlist of songs to listen to when I give birth. Several Mumford & Sons songs are on the playlist, including ‘Little Lion Man,’ ‘Awake My Soul,’ and ‘I Will Wait,'” she said. “They sing like they’re connected to the center of the universe. It makes me feel a sense of closeness to my ancestors, even though it’s not the kind of music my ancestors listened to.”
No word yet on whether the band may have also inspired the actor when it came time to name her first child.
