Audra McDonald‘s, 46, heart is “bursting” and we do not blame her! The Ragtime star gave birth to a baby girl on Oct. 19 and from what we’ve seen of her, she is beyond precious! This is Audra and her husband Will Swenson‘s, 42, first child together but the fourth kid between the two of them. We can only imagine how thrilled their entire fam must be!
“[Will] and I are overjoyed to welcome Sally James McDonald-Swenson, born last night at 11:16pm. Our hearts are bursting,” the six-time Tony winner tweeted on Oct. 20. And we just love the adorable name they chose for their newest bundle of joy. After all, their selection honors Will’s late mother, Sally, and Audra’s late father, Stanley James. SO sweet!
