Vanessa Morgan is expanding her family!

The Riverdale actress shared Saturday on Instagram that she and her boyfriend, James Karnik, are expecting the couple's first child, a baby girl. She posted a series of photos to announce the happy news. The first photo in the carousel post shows James carrying Vanessa with one arm and cradling her baby bump with the other hand.

In the second photo, Vanessa offers a clear shot of her baby bump. The maternal photoshoot also includes black and white photos of the couple walking through a grassy field as they smile and gaze into each other's eyes. In her caption, Vanessa shared her excitement for what's to come for the couple.

"So in love with this man, our family of 4 coming this month," she captioned the post. "🤰🏽#2 🫶🏽 Suprise! Thank you GOD."

On his Instagram page, James shared a black and white photo of him holding Vanessa, which he captioned, "Holdin BOTH my girls at the same time."

Vanessa shares son, River, with ex-husband, Michael Kopech, whom she split from in 2020. They got engaged in July 2019 and tied the knot in early January 2020 before calling it quits six months later. Some two years later,  Vanessa began dating James, a former Boston College star and professional basketball player in Canada's Elite Basketball League.

Vanessa shared earlier this year on the Broad Ideas podcast that although Michael remains in River's life, James has become a constant presence in River's life.

"At least  [River] will always know that my partner now has been there from what he will remember, as the beginning," Vanessa said of James. "They’re together every single day... he looks at him like a father figure."
