Actress Molly Bernard, most notably known for portraying the role of Lauren Heller on the TV series Younger, has announced that she is expecting her first child with her wife Hannah Lieberman! “Thrilled to share the very happy news that @liebhan and I are expecting our first gayby! We couldn’t be more excited to start our parenthood journey!”
To announce the news, Molly shared a series of images showing off her growing baby bump. She gushed about her excitement about starting this new journey with her wife. “Loving Hannah has been one of the most profound highlights of my life and I am honored I get to be a parent with her.” The actress also took a moment to share poignant messages about the current social climate. “Creating a queer family in a world where lgbtq+ rights are constantly under threat is a daunting task. Because I am who I am I’d like to say the following: pregnancy is a choice, no one should be forced by law to do this.” She ended by urging her community to take a stand and use their voice. “And please — I urge you to vote for the people in this midterm election who will protect our right to be a family, not threaten to obliterate it.”
Molly happens to be pregnant alongside her former Younger co-star Nico Tortorella, who announced in August that their partner Bethany Meyers was pregnant. Bethany reshared Molly’s pregnancy announcement to their Instagram Stories with an exciting message for their friend. “Beyond excited for Molly and Hannah and their little one! Our due dates are only 4 weeks apart and we’ve been commiserating and celebrating with each other since first tri.”
The Chicago Med star announced her engagement to Hannah in January 2020 and the couple tied the knot a year and a half later on September 23, 2021. In celebration of their one-year anniversary, Molly shared a snap of the two at their wedding alongside the capiton, “HAPPY ANNI TO MY BRIGHTEST LIGHT! To the first of many many.”
Congratulations to Molly and Hannah on the news of their first child! We wish them lots of love as they prepare to become parents.
