Annaleigh Ashford may not have scored a Tony nomination last week for her performance in the Broadway revival of Sylvia, but she got a heck of a consolation prize this week when she learned she is expecting her first child, a boy, according to People magazine.
Ashford, who won the 2015 Tony for Best Featured Actress in a Play for You Can't Take It With You, is married to actor Joe Tapper.
“We are so excited to be having a little boy,” Ashford told the magazine. “Now we’ll finally have a place to put all of Joe’s St. Louis Cardinals memorabilia.”
Ashford was previously Tony-nominated for her performance as factory worker Lauren in Kinky Boots. She appears on TV's Masters of Sex and is scheduled to play tapping groupie Columbia in this fall's FOX-TV adaptation of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
