Congratulations are in order to Insecure star Jay Ellis and his fiancée Nina Senicar! The couple announced on Instagram that they welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Nora Grace.
Nora Grace made her debut into the world on Friday, Nov. 8th; and according to her mother, the two share the same birthday. The couple shared some adorable details about their daughter’s birth, and the new mom also shared a loving photo of the newborn’s feet being cradled in her and Ellis’ hands. Needless to say, the couple is excited about their new bundle of joy.
“And just like that our lives got a whole new meaning. Welcome Nora Grace Ellis ♥️ 8.11.2019,” the new mama, 34, wrote in the caption.
The actress is known for generally being a private person. However, she has taken to Instagram to capture some intimate pregnancy moments. In a June cover story with Serbian magazine Story, she confirmed she was documenting her pregnancy journey with anticipation. Since then, the actress had been keeping up her surprisingly public pregnancy journey through Instagram.
When she got closer to her due date, she shared several beautiful black-and-white photos that showed off her baby bump. The maternity photoshoot was gorgeous yet simple.
It wasn't until late October that the actress revealed she was having a girl. She told her Instagram followers that her daughter's name would be Nora. In the photo, she wore an off-the-shoulder flower print dress while cradling her lovely baby bump.
Ellis and Senicar have reportedly been dating since 2015, but only confirmed their romance in 2017 during a Breakfast Club interview. It was during the summer that the coupled revealed they were engaged. Senicar revealed her engagement, confirmed her pregnancy, and even told the magazine they were expected to get married over the summer.
Ellis' fans were shocked he was engaged because the actor never revealed his partner until recently. Currently, it's not confirmed if they are indeed officially married or not. The reps for the couple have not confirmed or denied an official marriage to the media at this time. Regardless, congrats on the new addition to the family!
