Ginny & Georgia will soon get to welcome the youngest member of its fanbase as star Brianne Howey has announced she's expecting her first child.
The 33-year-old actor might be used to playing a mum to Ginny and Austin in the popular Netflix series, but those kids are both well and truly past their early years.
Don't get me wrong, teenagers definitely come with challenges of their own - especially in the case of Ginny & Georgia - but soon Brianne and her husband Matt Ziering will get to experience all the wonders, trials and tribulations of parenting in real life - and to a newborn, no less.
The couple married in 2021 after having their wedding delayed by the coronavirus outbreak, but now their family is about to get a little bigger as Brianne took to Instagram to show off her baby bump.
She shared a snap of herself dressed for the Hugo Boss spring 2023 fashion show in Miami on Wednesday (15 March), wearing a floor length brown dress with a white shirt over the top, which she'd pulled back to reveal her protruding belly.
Alongside the image, Brianne wrote: "@boss show with my forever new +1. thanks for having us! Loved every second of the new collection."
It's safe to say fans and fellow stars are over the moon at the announcement, with many flooding Brianne's comment section with their congratulations over the exciting news.
Antonia Gentry, who plays daughter Ginny in the Netflix series, responded, "so. happy. for. you," along with three love heart emojis, while co-star Diesel La Torraca commented: "I can’t wait to be a big brother!!! Sooooooo excited!!!"
Other followers said Brianne was 'glowing' as she shared the news, with one adding: "the cutest bump and you’re just radiating."
A representative for Brianne confirmed the news of her pregnancy to People as they said they are 'so happy for Brianne and this exciting new chapter'.
The actor has previously spoken about how her own mother influenced her portrayal of Georgia in the Netflix show, as she explained: "My mom had me at 21, she had my sister at 25, and my mom really had to hustle. I watched her work so hard, she ended up becoming a super successful software consultant, but she didn't start that way."
Brianne's mother died more than 10 years ago, but the time Brianne spent with her helped 'normalise' some of the experiences her character had in the show.
She explained: "Any way that we could save a little money, whether it was lying about our ages or hoarding food and bringing it into the movie theater, these were the things that were very normalized for us.
"So a lot of the scenes that I think would've felt jarring between Ginny and Georgia were a little bit more normalized."
