"More Life"

Congratulations to Leslie Odom Jr. and his wife, Nicolette Robinson, who are the parents of two kids. The celebrity couple welcomed their baby boy, Able Phineas Odom, on Sunday, March 25, 2021. Leslie took to Instagram to celebrate the arrival of his son on Thursday (Apr. 1).


“More life,” Leslie shared online. “One whole week with our Abe,” the celebrity father added. “Watching Nicolette give birth to these kids…? Simply, the bravest acts I’ve ever witnessed from a foot away,” Lesli said of his wife. “I love you, sweetheart and I am in awe. Our little family bursts at the seams with joy! And gratitude.”

Nicolette Robinson and Leslie Odom Jr. announced their expectancy last November. “Lots of reasons to celebrate over here,” Leslie told his social media fans. “Lots of reasons for hope too,” he added. “Baby boy and mama are doing swell. Praying for him and all the little ones on the way! The new class!! … We’ll make it right for you.”

Nicolette also wrote a sweet note to her son ahead of his birth. “Sweet baby boy, we cannot wait to meet you,” Robinson shared. “More reasons to love, to live, to connect, to pave the way for you and other little ones arriving in this world … We love you. Arriving March 2021.”

Able arrived near the end of the month but, nevertheless, within his expected window of time. “Congratulations to you and the family,” one fan wrote in response to Leslie Odom Jr.’s big announcement on Thursday morning. “Absolutely beautiful,” another social media follower exclaimed. “Congratulations.”

Able joined his older sister, Lucy, at home. Lucy celebrates her fourth birthday later this month. Leslie and Nicolette commemorate nine years of marriage this year. The celebrities met in 2008 while attending the University of Los Angeles (UCLA). Leslie Odom Jr. is most known for his role in Hamilton.
