Congratulations to actress Essence Atkins and her husband Jaime Mendez, who announced today that they are expecting their first child!
“Our gratitude is overwhelming to have found each other and adding a baby to our happy home is truly a dream come true,” the couple tells People. “We are both elated and humbled by this amazing gift.”
The 39-year-old star of Are We There Yet? met her future husband on Match.com on Valentine’s Day in 2008 and tied the knot a little over a year later.
