In a heartwarming announcement on Nov. 30, Emmy-winning actress Uzo Aduba, known for her role in “Orange Is the New Black,” shared the joyous news of the birth of her first child.

Taking to social media platforms Twitter and Instagram, the 42-year-old actress introduced her newborn baby girl, Adaiba Lee Nonyem, to the world through touching posts.

The social media posts included a poignant photograph of Aduba cradling her newborn daughter in a hospital bed, as reported by Essence.

The actress, who is married to cinematographer Robert Sweeting, expressed her overwhelming love and gratitude for her daughter in a tweet, saying:

“My daughter. I’ve never been in love so quickly, so deeply in my entire life. I really don’t know what to say, guys. My heart is full. Thank you, God. I have joy like a fountain. I have witnessed a miraculous thing, and I feel blessed to know you are ours. We love you so much.”

In a subsequent post, Aduba shared the name of her daughter, Adaiba Lee Nonyem, and expressed her feelings about motherhood.

She wrote:

“Adaiba Lee Nonyem – Daughter of the people, treasurer of the mother’s names who came before you. I’m a Mommy you guys. Motherhood. I’ve joined the club. I hear the dues are high, but the membership is completely worth it:). #grateful.”

Aduba had announced her pregnancy in June and proudly displayed her baby bump during the 2023 Tony Awards. She celebrated her impending motherhood with an intimate baby shower in August, surrounded by family and friends, according to USA Today.

The actress and Sweeting had tied the knot secretly in 2020, later revealing their marriage publicly in 2021 around their one-year anniversary.

During an interview on “Live With Kelly and Ryan” in November 2021, Aduba shared insights into their private wedding, stating:

“We were just taking the year to ourselves to enjoy the time and have some quiet time together, and then we were having our anniversary come up. [We did it] quietly and with a small group, of course — our most loved and closest family and friends. It was awesome.”
