Kim Fields is a mom again… at age 44.
The former Facts of Life star gave birth to a son on Tuesday, a little brother to Kim’s older son, Sebastian.
Kim and husband Christopher Morgan released a statement about the birth, calling their newborn son a “gift.”
“We are so blessed and grateful to God for this newest gift to our family,” Fields and Morgan told ABC News.
The boy, named Quincy Xavier Morgan, weighed in at 8 pounds, 8 ounces.
The story of how Kim Field discovered she was pregnant made some headlines earlier this summer. The 44-year-old actress and director thought she was pre-menopausal, and went to the doctor complaining of dehydration.
Doctors instead gave a very different diagnosis.
“Funny enough, for a minute I thought I was getting pre-menopausal ’cause certain things were starting to be irregular and then other symptoms started — my memory and I was clumsier than normal which I couldn’t even believe was possible,” Kim said. “Then our son got sick with a stomach virus and I caught it. Chris said, ‘No, babe, you’re a little sicker than Sebastian. You need to go and get that checked out’ and I said,’Okay.’ “
“They tested me and said, ‘Oh honey, you’re not dehydrated. You’re two months pregnant.'”
Kim said the pregnancy was a blessing, as she and Christopher had been trying for a second child but suffered some losses along the way.
“Sebastian and Christopher are very excited. We’re very, very blessed,” she announced on an episode of The Real. “It was planned. We’ve actually been trying for a couple years. We had gotten pregnant twice and [miscarried]. Chris and I were very blessed to really have one another, to have our family and friends and our God to really get us through that.”
Pregnancy didn’t stop Kim Fields from acting. She appeared pregnant in the latest installment of her “Holiday Love” series, a scripted musical comedy series that she both produced and directed. The special includes performances from gospel artists Wess Morgan, Micah Stampley and Donnie McClurkin.
