Baby on board!
Nico Tortorella and partner Bethany C. Meyers are going to be parents.
The couple announced Thursday that they’re expecting their first child after struggling to conceive for nearly two years.
“There is so much to tell you all about this unexpected story of how we finally conceived, but today I just want to sit in the excitement of getting to share our news with all of you,” Meyers wrote alongside photos of the two on Instagram. “Our 🌈 baby is in my belly.”
Meyers, 35, went on to send her “love” to those who are still on their “journey to parenthood.”
“I know some of you may have just had another failed cycle, or found out your pregnancy wasn’t viable, or some other hiccup in this wild game they call trying to conceive. Permission to mute me, step away or feel all of those feel. I’ve been there too.”
In the sweet snaps, the “Younger” star points to and kisses Meyer’s belly as she proudly shows off her growing bump in a fitted brown dress.
Tortorella, who uses they/them pronouns, also shared the news on their Instagram writing, “the baby. coming 3.9 @bethanycmeyers i love you. 🕊”
Meyers and Tortorella, 34, have been open about their infertility journey over the last couple of years.
Back in June, Meyers posted an Instagram picture snuggled up to her dog while crying. Along with the pic, she wrote, “One minute you’re smiling at your birthday pics, the next minute you’re crying in bed on a Tuesday morning, moments later you’ll put on a happy face for your zoom meeting.
“That’s what the TTC (trying to conceive) journey is 🌤.”
Last September, the actor revealed the couple, who is polyamorous, put their “’alternative sex life” on hold in order to have kids.
“I’m only having sex to get pregnant right now. And I haven’t had sex with a dude in two years. I haven’t had sex with anyone except for my partner since February of 2020,” they said on the podcast “Call Her Daddy.”
“Which is strange. We have never been this monogamous and straight in the 15 years that we’ve known each other. It’s been af-king process,” they continued before adding, “I’m addicted and in love with the idea that I will have a child soon, and all of my energy is directed to that person.”
The couple has been together for 16 years and tied the knot in 2018 with an intimate courthouse ceremony.
