Netflix's You actor Penn Badgley and his wife Domino Kirke are expecting their first child, with the mother-to-be sharing an Instagram post to announce the happy news while lamenting two past miscarriages.

While Penn hasn't publicly spoken about the news, his wife, a singer and birth worker, shared a heartfelt caption about dealing with loss, while sharing the news that they're expecting.

Along with a photo of her growing bump, Domino wrote:

"On the road again... pregnancy after loss is [a] 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."



Penn and Domino tied the knot in February 2017 and have been dating since 2014. She is a doula, meaning she's a trained companion - though not a healthcare professional - who supports another individual through childbirth, miscarriage, induced abortion or stillbirth. She is also already a mum to son Cassius Riley, born in 2009.

Congratulations, guys.
