The 34-year-old actress, who is currently five months pregnant, took to social media on Wednesday to share the exciting news in partnership with Clearblue.
She wrote, “We’re pregnant!! Whooooo chiiile!! I’m so excited to share that we have a baby on the way.”
“There have been so many feelings since we’ve learned that our dream of becoming parents is finally a reality. My husband, James, and I have felt a mix of shock, lots of nerves, but most of all so much excitement!”
Teyonah added, “Seeing the word PREGNANT was such an amazing feeling! We are so blessed and so grateful.”
Her Partnership With Clearblue
The Marvels’ actress went on to share why it was important to her to partner with Clearblue for her super exciting news.
As part of this exciting moment, I wanted to help raise awareness for Clearblue partner @marchofdimes and their amazing efforts to raise awareness for Black maternal and infant health.
They offer a training for health care providers with the goal of addressing implicit bias in the health care system to avoid perpetuating the cycles of attitudes and stereotypes that unconsciously affect one’s understanding, actions and decisions in order to achieve equity for all moms and babies.
And their #ItStartsWithMom campaign continues to provide moms and moms-to-be with resources and information on topics ranging from getting ready to be a mom to maternal health and wellness.
I encourage you to check out their website and Instagram to see how you can help support women to feel better prepared for pregnancy and what’s to come.

Of course, other queens in the entertainment industry like Lena Waithe, Tika Sumpter, Nafessa Williams, and Wunmi Mosaku jumped into the comment section of the post to congratulate Teyonah Parris on her pregnancy.
