Jurnee Smollett-Bell is a brand new mother! The ‘Friday Night Lights’ & ‘Parenthood’ star has officially given birth to her & her husband’s 1st child and we could not be happier for the sweet couple! The two welcomed a precious baby boy, and they picked the cutest name for him. Find out all the details here.
Jurnee Smollett-Bell, 30, announced the birth of her first child, a baby BOY, on Nov. 15 via both Instagram and Twitter, revealing along with the announcement, a super adorable pic of her holding her son close. SO cute! Jurnee and her husband, Josiah Bell, also shared with fans that they named their little boy Hunter Zion Bell — and honestly, we kind of love it!
“Hunter Zion Bell. So in love with our little man ❤️❤️❤️@josiahbell,” Jurnee captioned the precious mother/son pic. Josiah also posted a photo of his newborn boy, writing, “He’s here…Hunter Zion Bell……@jurneebell I’m so in love!” next to a snap of little Hunter holding onto his daddy’s finger. And while Jurnee and Josiah have clearly already fallen in love with their child, it seems like fans are starting to as well!
“Awwwwwww, what a sweet pic!!! Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Bell! Welcome to the world lil Hunter. 😀,” one commenter wrote. Another gushed, “Congrats on the heart that lives outside of you ❤️❤️.” We love all the support! There’s no doubt Jurnee and Josiah will make amazing parents.
Fans may recognize the new mom from NBC’s fan-favorite TV series Parenthood and Friday Night Lights. She most recently starred in Underground on WGN. Jurnee revealed she and Josiah were expecting a baby back in June by posting a sweet pic on Instagram featuring Josiah embracing Jurnee and her baby bump.
“He+Me+Baby= Three,” the actress wrote. “So in love with this beautiful blessing God has given us. #WeArePregnant!! ❤❤❤ @josiahbell.” Aw! And now their “blessing” has finally arrived. Congrats again, you two!
