Lance Gross is a father! The actor and his longtime love, Rebecca Jefferson, welcomed their first child, a baby girl, on Thursday. Gross confirmed the happy news by posting a sweet photo of the newborn on his Instagram, revealing only her tiny finger clutching his.
Gross and his fianceé, who celebrated impending parenthood with a pregnancy photo shoot and baby shower in early October, named their daughter Berkeley Brynn Gross. He said at the time of fatherhood, "I’m ready to bring this child into the world and spoil her. My parents taught me well so I just want to share some of the things they taught me with my child."
All in all, it's been a good week for Gross, who not only became a dad but is also in talks for the coveted role of Luke Cage in a live action series for Marvel and Netflix based on Jessica Jones.
Congratulations to Gross and his family on the happy news!
