Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton have welcomed their second child, a baby girl.
The Walking Dead star sent out a tweet letting fans know the little girl was “spectacular”. It was a funny message announcing she had been born, but literally not giving out any further details. He did not share her name, when she was born, or anything fans are dying to find out.
“Hey y’all... baby gal morgan is spectacular. We just respecting her wishes for laying low a bit longer. But we super appreciate all the well wishes n stuff. Thank you. Xojdhilgusandbabygal,” tweeted the actor.
It is not surprising the private couple is trying to keep their baby girl under wraps for a while. Burton managed to hide her pregnancy from the public when she was pregnant with their oldest child, Gus. If the One Tree Hill alum had not accompanied her husband to the Emmy Awards last fall, fans may have never known they were expecting a second child. There was no missing her bump on the red carpet, especially when the Morgan cradled it.
About a week after Burton’s bump made its red carpet debut, the actor accidentally revealed the couple was having a girl to the public. He was at a Supernatural convention when he spilled the beans in the most natural way. It literally came out of his mouth and he immediately covered his face knowing he had made a big oops. He later used Instagram to joke about his mistake.

"After all these years [Hilarie's] come to expect me to be a dope... thank god she gets it, and loves me regardless," Morgan shared.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton have a new addition to their family. The baby girl joins 7-year-old big brother Augustus or Gus, as his parents call him. Although the famous couple has been married since 2014, it is unclear how long they have been together. They have worked hard to keep their family life on the down low, while also trying to be a little open with fans. The actor’s announcement that his daughter was born is a perfect example of how they share but maintain privacy.
Congratulations go out to Morgan, Burton, and Gus on the fabulous news their family now has a little baby girl.
