- Penn Badgley is expecting his first child with his wife, Domino Kirke.
- Penn is a stepfather to Domino's son, Cassius Kirke.
I'm sorry, were you catching up on everything you missed at the Oscars last night? Well I hate to break it to break it to you, but it looks like you're gonna have to put that reading on hold for juuuuust a sec, because you totally need to pay attention to what I'm about to say: Penn Badgley—aka Dan from Gossip Girl and Joe from You—is expecting a child with his wife, singer and doula Domino Kirke. And to clarify, yes, this is his first child!
Since Penn isn't exactly the most active on Instagram, Domino did the honors of informing fans of her and Penn's relationship that they have a baby on the way. Along with a picture of her baby bump, she wrote:
On the road again...pregnancy after loss is whole other thing. After two miscarriages in a row we were ready to call it. I stopped trusting my body and started to accept the fact that I was done. As a birth attendant, I’ve seen and heard it all. It takes everything I’ve got to detach lovingly from the losses I’ve been present for and be in my own experience. When I was pregnant at 25, I knew nothing. I had no community. I dove in blissfully unaware about birth and its mysteries. Now, with 10 years worth of experience to pull from, I treasure my birth community and the knowledge I have. You’re already teaching us how to stay in the day in a way we’ve never had to, little one. Thank you.
While this is Penn's first child, it isn't his first rodeo with being a father. He's already a stepdad to Cassius Kirke, Domino's son from a previous relationship.
“He’s a really good stepdad,” Domino told Us Weekly in October. “He doesn’t have to be ‘dad’ so he can have more fun with him. It’s really nice. The stepparent thing is definitely unchartered territory for me cause I didn’t grow up with one, but…he takes care of him really well.”
