Broadway Star Audra McDonald Pregnant, Expecting Baby with Husband Will Swenson!

Audra McDonald just announced that she’s expecting a baby with her husband Will Swenson!

The 45-year-old six-time Tony award winning actress announced the news in a statement, via Playbill, that read, “Who knew that tap dancing during perimenopause could lead to pregnancy? Will and I are completely surprised”and elated”to be expecting a new addition to our family. I am so very grateful to everyone in New York and London for allowing me to rearrange my schedule to accommodate this little miracle. While I’m disappointed I have to postpone my West End debut in Lady Day, I’m glad I’ll be able to spend a little more time in Shuffle Along this summer and will look forward to setting up a 1920s-themed nursery in my dressing room when I return to the show.”

Audra will take a leave from Shuffle Along, her current Broadway show, beginning July 24. In addition, Audra was supposed to bring her Tony-winning performance from Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill to London. This production has been postponed as well.

Both Audra and Will have children from previous relationships. This will be their first child together after marrying in 2012. Congrats!
