Joshua Jackson and his wife, Jodie Turner-Smith, are now a family a three. People reported that the couple recently welcomed their first child together, a daughter.

“Both mother and baby are happy and healthy,” the actors' reps shared with the outlet.

Turner-Smith revealed she was having a girl in honor of International Women's Day, referring to the baby as "her" and "she" on Instagram Stories. "Can you see her dancing in there? Every time I try to record she stops," the actress said in a recording of her belly.

Reports of the couple's pregnancy coincided with news of their secret wedding back in December 2019. A month later, Turner Smith settled both rumors during an interview with The Sunday Times. “I haven’t said to anybody, ‘Yeah, we got married,’" she told the outlet of her and Joshua's marriage status. "People are assuming whatever they want, but when people tell me ‘Congratulations,’ I say, ‘Thank you.’”

Elsewhere in the interview, Jodie also confirmed the couple was expecting a baby. “Joshua tells me every day, ‘The way you’re handling this is incredible,’” she said of her husband's support. “He’s more tired than I am.” Meanwhile, Joshua also revealed he's sharing Jodie's pregnancy cravings. "The only odd craving, and it only really lasted for two days, was an Oreo milkshake," he told Access Hollywood weeks before his wife's due date.

As for how they found out Jodie was pregnant, Joshua said: “We found out together. We kind of had an inkling. Cycles change. This was literally the most joyous moment of my life. She was working out of town and I asked her to hold off a couple days before taking a test so we could do it together.” Congratulations to the happy couple!
