The Empire actress has made it known to the public via a very cute post on Instagram that they are expecting their first child together. This post was made on Friday, October 14, as they posed on the red carpet in a picture on the opening night of Trai’s Broadway show called The Piano Lesson.
The first slide of photo shows Grace holding her baby bump wearing a coral halter-neck gown, while the second slide of photo, we have both parents cradling the baby bump.
‘Happy Opening Night on your Broadway Debut, my beloved King,” she wrote. “Words absolutely fail when it comes to describing how deeply and overwhelmingly proud we are of you, @traibyers. What a night!’
Congratulations and prayers rolled in from different celebrities, preacher and producer DeVon Franklin commented, ‘My
brother was a revelation last night!!!
Congratulations!!!! I’m so excited to be an
uncle!!!!!! Love y’all forever and a day!!’. Teyonah commented, ‘CONGRATULATIONS to you both on the
amazing journey ahead to parenthood!!’
The couple are yet to reveal the gender and due date of their baby. The celebration was for two, not just the baby but also Trai’s Broadway Debut in the remake of the August Wilson play The Piano Lesson.
