Samira Wiley & Lauren Morelli Welcome Daughter, George Elizabeth


“We are so happy, so grateful, and so tired.”

On April 11th, celesbian couple Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli welcomed their daughter, George Elizabeth, into the world. However, the world only learned of little George on Mother’s Day, when Wiley posted the birth announcement on Instagram.

“Happy 1st Mother’s Day to my beautiful wife, who four weeks ago today after laboring for almost 3 days gave birth to our first child — our gorgeous daughter, George,” Wiley wrote. “Welcome to the world, babygirl. We love you and we thank you for giving us the best 1st Mother’s Day two ladies could ask for.”
