People Magazine has confirmed the sex and name of the baby, but Sumpter hasn't shared any more details or photos of the infant. Earlier, the star of the recent movie, Southside With You, told People why she was being so protective of her privacy. “I wanted to experience every moment of this pregnancy for myself and enjoy it without everybody else being in it with me. Social media can be harsh, and I’m a mama bear, protective of my family. So that’s why I waited to tell people, including some friends.”
Congratulations to Sumpter on her new adventure in motherhood, and we eagerly look forward to seeing photos of the little angel very soon!
See how gorgeous and glowing Sumpter was during her pregnancy in the gallery below — This is going to be one beautiful baby!
