Kim Fields from 'Living Single' and Husband Christopher Morgan Share Sweet Tributes on Son Quincy's 6th Birthday
Kim Fields and her husband, Christopher Morgan, are proud parents as they pay tribute to their son, Quincy, on his sixth birthday. The actress once opened up about how she and Christopher never thought they would have a second child.
Most fans fell in love with Kim when she starred as Tootie on the 70s/80s sitcom "Facts of Life," but that former child star is all grown up with two kids of her own.
Kim and Christopher's son, Quincy, turned six on December 3, and both parents commemorated the special day with heartwarming social media tributes.
Her co-star Kenya Moore claimed that there were talks in the entertainment industry about Christopher being gay.
The actress shared a photo and video collage of herself cuddling Quincy on a wooden bench overlooking a body of water. The clip was set to Bruno Mars' "Count on Me" and accompanied by some of the sweetest words ever.
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY QUINCY!!! You, Prince, are truly one of the most loving, funniest, smartest beings full of the most amazing inner light!!! You shine so bright every day but especially today as you turn 6!!!!! Q, you are a cornerstone in our family. You never cease to amaze and bring such glorious joy to all who know & love you."

Quincy was born in 2013 and immediately dubbed a "miracle baby" by his elated parents. Kim would later reveal the reason for the unique moniker: Quincy's birth was a surprise.
The "Living Single" alum and her husband had their first child, Sebastian, in 2007, but trying for a second proved to be quite a challenge at the time.
By the time Quincy's pregnancy came to be, Kim had suffered two miscarriages and thought her days of childbirth were over. The actress was reportedly even preparing for menopause.
Kim was feeling unwell and decided to see a doctor, but the last thing she expected to hear was the news of a baby growing inside her. "I was stunned out of my mind," she told Closer Weekly in 2014 via Today.
BORN TO MUSIC
According to the outlet, Quincy was named in honor of music legend, Quincy Jones, and as it turned out, he was living up to the name right from birth.
Sharing her delivery experience, Kim revealed that there was a lot of music involved in the moments leading up to the birth of her second son.
"Turns out the anesthesiologist was totally into singing, so we were doing three-part harmonies and holding hands! We were singing 'Family' from 'Dreamgirls' when Quincy came out."
KIM & CHRISTOPHER: SURVIVING RUMORS
Now, Kim and Christopher couldn't be happier with their boys, and that much is apparent from their own social media feeds. Both entertainers (Christopher is a Broadway actor and singer) could not hide their pride in 2017 when Sebastian graduated from elementary school, and Christopher got emotional with several Instagram tributes.
Kim married Christopher in July 2007 six years after her first marriage to Jonathan Freeman ended in divorce. The actress's current union has not been without its challenges, chief of which has been rumors about her hubby's sexuality.
After Kim joined the cast of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" season 8 in 2015, her co-star Kenya Moore claimed that there were talks in the entertainment industry about Christopher being gay.
Kim, 50, stood by her husband as they faced the rumors head-on, and even now that they've sworn off reality TV, the couple remains an undefeatable unit.
