Troian Bellisario has become a mother for the second time.
The ‘Pretty Little Liars’ alum took to Instagram on Friday (04.06.21) to announce she and her husband, Patrick J. Adams, have quietly welcomed their second child together – a baby girl named Elliot Rowena Adams.
Alongside a picture of herself cradling her baby, she wrote: “Ms Elliot Rowena Adams joined us on May 15th under the wildest of circumstances. A whole new ERA for this family. Welcome, my love. [photo] by papa @halfadams (sic)”
Patrick also shared the news on his own Instagram account, where he posted a picture of their new little one holding his finger.
He wrote: "+1…..Welcome to the funhouse, Ms. Elliot Rowena Adams. May your life be as unique and exciting as your arrival. (sic)”
The couple had not previously announced Troian’s pregnancy, but Elliot’s arrival comes after the birth of their first daughter, Aurora, in October 2018.
Shortly after Aurora's birth, Troian wrote on social media: "I cannot express out grateful I am. To the people who have protected us and kept our growing family safe and respected our privacy. To our tribe for expanding with grace and exponential amounts of love. To my @halfadams for being so supportive during every moment of my pregnancy and her birth. And to whatever incredible force of fate that brought this baby girl into our lives. I couldn't be more proud to be her mother. To bring a new girl into this world and to do my best to raise her to be kind, strong and whatever the heck she wants to be. (sic)”
Troian and Patrick waited a year before announcing Aurora’s name to the public, but have chosen to unveil their second child’s moniker immediately.
Meanwhile, the 35-year-old actress previously confessed to suffering with mum guilt.
She said in 2019: "I want to be there for her all the time, but that's not possible. I become an empty well because I'm somebody who needs to work. I love working, I love being creative, and I want her to see that. I find that if I don't fill up my creativity well, even if it's meditation or exercise or I go get coffee with my writing partners ... then I return to her, and I don't have anything to give her. If I feel good and I'm fulfilled, I want to engage with her."
