#BabyGirlBrown’s name and other details have not yet been revealed. This is the first child for the She Loves Me star and her husband.
Benanti shared a video at BroadwayCon during the BroadwayCon Party Line saying she couldn’t be there for “obvious reasons,” while showing off her healthy baby bump.
