Joshua Jackson and wife Jodie Turner-Smith are now proud parents.

“The couple has welcomed their first child. Both mother and baby are happy and healthy,” a rep for the couple told Page Six.
The rep did not reveal the sex of the baby, but Turner-Smith set off speculation they were having a girl when she referred to the baby using the “she” pronoun last month.
“Can you see her dancing in there? Every time I try to record she stops,” she said in a video of her stomach.
The pair reportedly got hitched last year and on Feb. 14, Turner-Smith posted what looked like wedding photos of the couple and a poem by Pablo Neruda on Instagram, writing, “Happy Valentine’s Day to the man who sees my soul and holds my heart. Love you baby daddy.”
The pair have been nesting at home in LA, and “The Affair” star Jackson confessed he was nervous about being a new dad at this difficult time.
“I’ve never been a parent before, so I’m not quite sure how much of this is just first-baby anxiety and how much of this is pandemic anxiety,” he said last month.
He then told “Good Morning” on March 25, “Obviously, it’s a bit stressful right now and we’re just trying to figure out how to be smart about being quarantined. “The medical system right now is a little bit difficult, so we’re figuring it out day by day.”
Jackson added, “But she’s healthy and the baby’s healthy, so that’s important.”
Last year, Jodie and Joshua were pretty adamant about not wanting to raise their little one in the United States due to overt racism.
