Congratulations are in order for Jessica Szohr and her partner Brad Richardson, who have welcomed their first baby into the world.

"Added a little special sweetness to our family and some new directions to our journey on 1-11-21, Bowie Ella Richardson," Szohr wrote, alongside a black and white photograph of her baby's tiny hands.

"This journey with Brad and Lexi has been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. To then create a human that is absolutely perfect in our eyes and put a feeling in my heart I didn’t know existed is beyond words.

"I have all the feels and she is really something special."

Jessica and Brad have been dating for a number of years. While it is the first child for her, he has a child from a previous relationship.

The actress announced she was pregnant in September, just days after her fellow Gossip Girl alumni Penn Badgley announced that he had welcomed a baby boy with wife Domino Kirke (through the medium of placenta artwork...).

Furthermore, Leighton Meester welcomed a baby boy with husband Adam Brody around the same time as Badgley, while Blake Lively welcomed a third child with Ryan Reynolds the year before.

The Gossip Girl spin-off will air on HBO Max in 2021. In the meantime, you can catch up on seasons 1-6 of the original series on Netflix now.
