Danielle Brooks hit two birds with one stone by celebrating her 30th birthday and her baby shower in one event. Her mystery boyfriend joined her during the special occasion, and people are still trying to figure out who exactly he is. 

With her due date drawing near, Danielle Brooks decided to celebrate her baby shower at the same time as her birthday. She spent the special day with her family, friends, and her mystery boyfriend whom until now, she hasn't introduced publicly despite their many photos and sightings together. 


Danielle's Dual Celebration

Brooks, who just turned 30, shared an adorable video of her growing baby bump, with the words "Mommy's 30" written on it. "Thank you God for this day!! #30 years young today!" she captioned. 

The happy mom-to-be and her closest family and friends shared photos of the special birthday and baby shower celebration, which looked both intimate and fun. The birthday celebrant chose to dress in a simple white dress with criss-cross details on the chest area. 


Announcing Her Pregnancy

Back in July, Danielle Brooks surprisingly announced that she was pregnant and expecting her first child with her mystery man. The two first went public about their relationship in February, and fans were shocked to hear her reveal her pregnancy just five months later.

The "Orange Is the New Black" star happily shared the news on her Instagram, saying:

"So elated to finally share this news with you all. I'm happily pregnant!"

The news was quite lightly by the fans, expressing both their surprise and excitement for the actress. Messages of "OMG" and "Congratulations" filled the photo, and since then, Danielle openly shares her pregnancy journey on social media. 


A Quick Maternity Break

Brooks plays Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson on the hit Netflix series "Orange Is The New Black." Now that she's due in a couple of weeks, Danielle is set to take a quick break from show business to take care of her newborn child. 

Happy birthday and Congratulations, Danielle!
