Walking Dead actor Jeffery Dean Morgan has welcomed his second child to the world aged 51.
Jeffery, perhaps best known for his role as Negan in the hit US television series, revealed the happy news on Twitter.
To announce the arrival of his baby girl, Jeffery wrote to his 595,000 followers: ‘Hey y’all… baby gal morgan is spectacular. ‘We just respecting her wishes for laying low a bit longer. But we super appreciate all the well wishes n stuff. Thank you. Xojdhilgusandbabygal’.
His wife, fellow actress Hilarie Burton, and he revealed they were expecting their second baby together at last year’s Emmy Awards in California. The couple are already parents to seven-year-old Augustus. They have not revealed their daughter’s name yet though some people on Twitter are suggesting it could be ‘gal’.
Jeffrey and Hilarie have become parents for the second time
Jeffery and Hilarie have been together since 2009 and married in 2014. Jeffery accidentally revealed the gender of the couple’s second child while at an appearance at the Supernatural Convention in New Jersey. Luckily, the actor confirmed that his wife Hilarie wasn’t too mad about the slip-up.
The actor told his fans: ‘I texted @hilarieburton right after I spilled the little girl beans… and, as usual… she was a rockstar. After all these years she’s come to expect me to be a dope… thank god she gets it, and loves me regardless’.
