Congratulations to Jurnee Smollett and her husband Josiah Bell who welcomed a son a few days ago. The celebrity parents took to Instagram to announce their son Hunter Zion Bell’s arrival on Tuesday.

“He’s here,” Josiah shared along with a picture of the newborn’s hand. ” I’m so in love,” the proud father gushed. Jurnee also shared her delight with Instagram fans. “So in love with our little man,” the star actress wrote.


Jurnee and Josiah announced the expectancy of their son earlier this year. The celebrity couple was well into their second trimester of expectancy when news of their family’s expansion spread. “He+Me+Baby= Three,” Jurnee shared with social media fans. “So in love with this beautiful blessing God has given us,” she added.

The actress’ brother, Jussie Smollett, also took to Instagram to celebrate his little sister’s expectancy. “My little baby is having a baby,” he exclaimed. “I remember mommy giving birth to you and now you’re about to have a baby of your own. I love you so so so so much. This is the most blessed event in life.”

Little Hunter is Jurnee and Josiah Bell’s first child. The couple celebrated six years of marriage on October 24, 2016.
