Actor Leslie Odom, Jr. has announced the arrival of his second child. His wife, actress Nicolette Robinson, gave birth to the family’s newest addition on March 25, 2021. The couple shared last November that they were expecting.
The Hamilton star shared a series of images featuring his new arrival. It’s a boy! Leslie and Nicolette have chosen to name their son Able Phineas. Able is a Hebrew name that means “A Breath.” Phineas is a Hebrew name as well which means “Nubian.”
Leslie shared a beautiful message to his wife in the caption of his announcement post. “Watching Nicolette give birth to these kids…? Simply, the bravest acts I’ve ever witnessed from a foot away. I love you, sweetheart and I am in awe. Our little family bursts at the seams with joy! And gratitude.”
The Oscar nominated actor and his wife also share a daughter together, Lucille “Lucy” Ruby, who will be turning 4-years-old later this month. The couple featured their daughter in their pregnancy announcement last November. In the series of images, Lucy was seen kissing and hugging Nicolette’s growing belly and in a few images was dancing and jumping in excitement. She appeared to be thrilled to become a big sister!
Leslie and Nicolette met on the set of Once On This Island. They tied the knot on December 1, 2012, in an intimate ceremony. Nicolette’s father officiated the wedding.
Congratulations to Leslie and Nicolette on welcoming a new life into the world! We wish them all the best as they settle into life as a family of four.
