Younger star Sutton Foster announced that she and husband Ted Griffin have adopted a baby girl! The multi-talented Broadway and TV Land actress shared the news with the audience at her Lincoln Center’s American Songbook performance at Alice Tully Hall on Friday night. "Our lives are forever changed, and our hearts are exploding, Foster, 42, shared.

Foster's rep elaborated to People, sharing the baby's name, “They are delighted to announce the healthy arrival of their daughter Emily Dale Griffin." The site also reports that Emily was born on March 5. 

The Tony-award winning performer and Griffin, a screenwriter, have been hitched since October 2014. Last March, Foster, who plays Liza Miller, a mom of a teen girl, onYounger, said having kids was "definitely on the table."

“It’s almost like the opposite of my character,” she explained to People. “I’ve really focused on career most of my life and so now I’m transitioning into where my priorities and my ambitions are more personal.”

Sounds like that transition has been smooth and wonderful for Foster. And although she has yet to share a photo of little Emily, she did pay tribute to motherhood back in January, posting a photo of her own mom bringing her home from the hospital.
