The couple confirmed their marriage in December of last year after being spotted wearing rings the month prior. In January, they revealed their pregnancy news when they were seen together in LA and Jodie was wearing a form-fitting dress that showed off her growing bump.
Last month, Joshua spoke with Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest on Live with Kelly and Ryan to share how he and Jodie were handling the last few weeks of pregnancy amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “We’re figuring out how to deal with interacting with doctors and hospitals right now and just managing the stress,” he shared. He also said that to pass the time, the couple was doing lots of binge-watching and playing games together, Monopoly and Jenga being a few of their favorites.

Well I guess I know what I’m doing this evening. Surprise drop(even to me!) of @littlefireshulu today. Happy St. Paddies. I hope this show can give a little emotional and mental relief for everyone out there as we grapple with the anxiety of all the unknowns right now. Remember, no matter how tense your house is right now, it’s still better than dinner w/ the Richardson’s !!
The couple tends to keep their personal lives very private, so they may opt not to show photos of their daughter online or share her name. We wish them lots of love as they transition into their life as a new family.
