Shonda Rhimes Welcomes Third Daughter — TV Writer Announces Baby On Twitter
Shonda announced her news on Twitter, the very social media site that she was neglecting while preparing for her baby! She tweeted on Sept. 18:
Been AWOL from Twitter. I totally have a good reason: TINY HUMAN #3 is here and she’s perfect! Babies are good. Life is good. #2shows3kids
That’s the best reason from being away from Twitter we’ve ever heard — but Shonda had actually been retweeting news about her shows pretty consistently.
Congrats to Shonda at this exciting time!
Shonda Rhimes Opens Up About Daughters’ Adoption
In April 2012, Shonda revealed that she adopted her second daughter Emerson through a domestic adoption. She had been planning to give older daughter Harper a sibling for some time and there was a ten year gap between their ages. “I’ve been writing adoption into story lines on my shows and only a few people close to me knew about my plans,” Shonda told Us Weekly at the time. “I think the response was ‘oh my goodness’ from a lot of people.”
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Are you excited that Shonda welcomed a third daughter?
