Dascha‘s OITNB co-star Uzo Aduba commented, “Ahhhhh!!!!! Congratulations to you both!!!!! So exciting!!!!! ❤️❤️❤️.” True Blood actress Shanola Hampton commented, “No way!!!!!!! Congrats my love!❤️❤️❤️❤️.”

Dascha welcomed Dasany into the world when she was just 17. Her mom helped her raise her child, but she passed away while Dascha was in college.

“One day I finally opened up to one of my psychology professors,” she told Parents Latina. “I told her I hated being a mother, and ever since my mom passed, I didn’t celebrate anything. She told me the reason I got angry was that I had a subconscious jealousy of my daughter, because she had her mother and I didn’t have mine.”

Dascha gave birth to her second child, her son Aryam, at the age of 25.

After the baby shower, Dasany took to her Instagram account and shared photos of all the gifts she received. She wrote, “His closet is going to be better then mine 🥳🩵.. Im so grateful and blessed for all the support I have got, during this journey. Thank you all for the amazing gifts! NOW TIME TO BE THE HOTTEST MOM EVER 😍!”
