28 May ‘Shameless’ Star Emmy Rossum and Husband Welcome Surprise Baby
Shameless actress Emmy Rossum has kept a low profile throughout the pandemic – and for good reason!
The “Phantom of The Opera” and “Shameless” alum took to instagram Tuesday morning, announcing the birth of her and partner, “Mr. Robot” creator, Sam Esmail’s daughter. The couple had not announced the pregnancy publicly.
Rossum posted two black and white photos of her and husband Sam Esmali caressing her baby bump, along with a third photo print of the couple’s daughter’s foot. Rossum then captioned the post “5.24.21, On a sunny Monday morning, at 8:13AM, we welcomed our daughter into the world.”
On The Down Low
Like many others such as Henry Golding and wife Liv Lo, the couple have yet to announce the name of their daughter, which we can only assume will remain for privacy reasons.
Many of Rossum’s “Shameless” co-stars and friends showed their excitement for the new mom. “I love it! Congratulations, mama!” comedian Chelsea Handler replied to Rossum’s post on Instagram. Gabrielle Union commented, “Congratulations mama!!” “Euphoria” actress Storm Reid also showed her support: “CONGRATULATIONS” commented Reid.
Rossum posted another black and white photo, this time in a scantily clad robe. The caption read “Two weeks before our daughter was born.” Actress Hilary Swank commented, “Gorgeous!” This perfectly captures the breathtaking photo.
Rossum also shared the news on Twitter, posting a photo flaunting her baby bump while wearing a black bodysuit. Shortly after, many fans showed their congrats as well.
Love at First Sight
In August 2015, Rossum became engaged to writer/director Sam Esmail after two years of dating, and the couple married on May 28, 2017, at a Reform synagogue in New York City. Guests at the wedding included Robert Downey Jr. and Hilary Swank, as well as Rossum’s Shameless co star Shanola Hampton and Mr. Robot stars Rami Malek, Christian Slater and Carly Chaikin.
A big congratulations to the new parents!
