The Milkwater star then went on to use her announcement to advocate for reproductive rights and encourage her followers to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.
"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 wrote. "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."
Bernard also shared a slide in her post with a quote about reproductive rights from writer Maggie Nelson, which reads, "Never in my life have I felt more pro-choice than when I was pregnant. And never in my life have I understood more thoroughly, and been more excited about, a life that began at conception. Feminists may never make a bumper sticker that says 'It's a choice and a child,' but of course that's what it is, and we know it. We're not idiots; we understand the stakes. Sometimes we choose death."
Bernard's post garnered tons of love from her friends and followers, including her Chicago Med co-star Torrey DeVitto, who commented, "This is beautiful news !! ❤️❤️❤️ congrats!"
Actress Ashley Park also commented, writing, "Yes ladies and babies 😍."
