Leslie Odom Jr. Welcomes First Child With Wife Nicolette Robinson

Congratulations to Leslie Odom Jr. and his wife Nicolette Robinson!

The Hamilton star and his wife welcomed their first child, a baby girl, into the world on April 23, 2017. Odom Jr., 35, shared the good news on Instagram two days later with two photos of his newborn daughter, named Lucille Ruby. "Lucille Ruby arrived in the wee hours on Sunday morning after a brief but harrowing labor on the part of her incredible mother, Nicolette Kloe Robinson, the dragonslayer," he captioned the photos. "Deeper in love by the minute."

Robinson, 29, also shared a photo of their daughter on Instagram, writing, "Lucille Ruby Odom came into this world on Sunday, April 23rd, 2017. She is the love + light of our lives and she's teaching us so much already... Our sweet Lucy."

Robinson, who wears a "Lucille" necklace in the photo, continued, "Mommy & Daddy couldn't be happier."





Odom Jr. and Robinson, who married in Dec. 2012, announced that they were expecting back in Oct. 2016. At the time, Odom Jr. posted a photo of himself with Robinson posed beneath large balloons that spelled out "Baby." In the caption, he wrote, "Little one, you're on our mind all the time. Keep eating and growing! We love you and we're already so proud of you! Love, your mom and dad."



Lucille's birth comes just days after Robinson celebrated her birthday with family and friends—and really, who could ask for a better birthday present?

Congratulations again to the two actors. We can't wait to see more photos of your little bundle of joy.
