“The Young and the Restless” star Julia Pace Mitchell is pregnant!
The 27-year-old actress and her husband Stephen L. Hightower are expecting a baby together in May. The couple is having a son and they plan to name him Stephen L. Hightower III.
“I feel so blessed and hopeful about becoming a mommy for the first time,” the Mitchell said in a statement to People magazine.
Though the mom-to-be will be a first time mother in real life, the actress’s character Sofia Winters did have an onscreen pregnancy on CBS’s “The Young and the Restless.”
“I’m sure giving birth in real life will take a lot longer than on TV!” she joked.
Pace Mitchell and her businessman husband have been married since September 2011.
