The former The Facts Of Life star stood up and said, “Sebastian and Christopher are very excited. We’re very, very blessed. It was planned. We’ve actually been trying for a couple years. We had gotten pregnant twice and [miscarried]. Chris and I were very blessed to really have one another, to have our family and friends and our God to really get us through that.”
The 44-year-old added, “If I’m encouraging to anybody … it’s not like I’m the poster child for over 40 and pregnant.”
The baby’s name will be Quincy Xavier.
People reports Fields went on to describe how she found out she was pregnant.
“Funny enough, for a minute I thought I was getting pre-menopausal ‘cuz certain things were starting to be irregular and then other symptoms started — my memory and I was clumsier than normal which I couldn’t even believe was possible. Then our son got sick with a stomach virus and I caught it. Chris said, ‘No, babe, you’re a little sicker than Sebastian. You need to go and get that checked out’ and I said,’Okay.’ They tested me and said, ‘Oh honey, you’re not dehydrated. You’re two months pregnant.’”
On August 1 – Fields tweeted a fun message to a friend saying, “A big thank you to my sister, @PeaceNLoveLisa of Carol’s Daughter for blessing me w/Sexy Belly! I got a sexy belly, I got a sexy belly! :-)”
Fields and Morgan – a Broadway actor – were married in July 2007.
