Jesse Williams is expecting a child! A family friend of the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star and his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, recently confirmed with Us Weekly that the couple are expecting their first child to arrive in December. Aryn and Jesse reportedly had a baby shower on September 29, 2013 in which family members and close friends attended.
Jesse, a doctor onscreen, recently commented on discovering his character’s new role as boss of the hospital during a talk with TV Fanatic. “It was really funny actually because I found out at the table read, at the end of the table read, as I was reading the line,” said Williams. “I literally found out at the last possible time in front of the entire cast and crew. I think my face in the moment of getting that news with Debbie Allen [who plays Catherine Avery] sitting across from me at the table was kind of probably far more perfect than when we actually shot it.”
Williams wed the love of his life last year in Los Angeles. The two met while Jesse was a high school teacher in New York, and dated for five years before marrying.
