Audra McDonald is having a very big year!

Audra shared the news on Twitter, along with an adorable snap of her little one's feet:

Little Sally James joins Audra's daughter Zoe Madeline, 12, from a previous marriage, and Swenson's sons Sawyer, 12, and Bridger, 15, also from a previous relationship, in their blended family.

Congratulations to them all!
