On Sunday, the Games People Play actress announced that she recently welcomed a daughter and celebrated her first Mother's Day. Sharing a video on Instagram, Posey introduced herself as "Harley’s Mom," and went on to caption the post writing, "My biggest blessing thus far!! I love being your Mommy.”
In the video, Posey speaks directly to her daughter, saying, "I didn't know what raising you in this crazy world would look like, but I was ready for the adventure. Anytime I had doubts or uncertainties, feeling you growing inside reminded me God chose me to be your mommy."

But you've showed me that the love we share, is the love we deserve. You are the embodiment of Power, Strength, Resilience, and what it means to be a WOMAN!," Wilson captioned his post.
He added: "Just when I thought I felt all the love that it was to feel. You blessed me with our beautiful baby girl! I can't even explain how amazing it has been watching you be a great mother to our child. She definitely has the perfect example of a real woman! I want to thank you for being You! You are truly something special! I'm beyond blessed to do this thing called life with a woman that is really one of a kind. I'm excited for what the future holds😘 Happy First Mother's Day Meli."
