"The Final Piece To Our Love-Given Puzzle"

Sonequa Martin-Green and husband Kenric Green have welcomed their second child together. The Star Trek: Discovery star announced the arrival of her baby girl on Tuesday (July 28).

“We welcomed our sweet baby girl last Sunday, July 19th at 8:32 in the morning,” Sonequa told her Instagram followers. “It was a profoundly beautiful home birth, and now both of our children have been born in the water,” the actress shared.


“We never felt that anything was missing, but now that she’s here, we feel a perfect sense of completeness,” Sonequa continued. “Her name is Saraiyah Chaunté Green. She’s got Mommy’s initials and Mommy’s middle name. She’s utterly perfect, just like her brother. Thanks be to Yeshua. She’s the final piece to our Love-given puzzle.”

Sonequa Martin-Green and Kenric Green’s daughter joins the couple’s son, Kenric Justin Green II, at home. It was just a few weeks ago that Sonequa reserved what should have been a Mother’s Day celebrating her to express her unconditional love for her son.

“How could I possibly put into one post the depth of my love for you,” the actress asked in a heartfelt Instagram post written to her little one. “So smart. So strong. So funny. So beautiful. So caring. So kind. So thoughtful, witty and clever. So faithful, confident and secure. Every day you wow me son. Every day you melt me son.”

Kenric Justin Green II celebrates his fifth birthday this year. Stay tuned for more celebrity family news!
