This is the first child for Morris and her longtime love, Taylor Hubbell, whom she met in high school. Speaking about Hubbell in a candid interview with Fitness magazine in 2011, the Beyonce backup dancer turned actress gushed: "I want to marry Taylor and have kids with him. I love acting, but if it affects my relationship, then I won't continue."
Us first broke the news of the star's baby joy back in April. "It was totally unexpected, but they are incredibly happy and excited," a source told Us at the time.
Indeed, Morris seemed to enjoy pregnancy. "Heather is glowing! She is so happy. She is really excited to be a mom," a second source said of the actress, who will not return for Glee's fifth season. "She is just amazed by the whole experience."
