“So elated to finally share this news with you all. I’m happily pregnant,” Brooks wrote in the caption of a photo she shared of herself holding a Clear Blue pregnancy test that read “pregnant.”

Brooks is five months along in her pregnancy. She also expressed her sentiments regarding her new upcoming bundle of joy in her IG story.

“When one chapter ends, another begins. Super excited to share with you my new beginning,” Brooks wrote.

In August, Brooks and her fellow OITNB castmates will debut the final season of the popular Netflix drama. Danielle Brooks, 29, portrays the character of Tasha “Tastyee” Jefferson. The South Carolina native said that fans will be “satisfied” with the finale.

“I think they’re going to feel full and feel like we’ve answered all the questions that they wanted answered,” Brooks said during a recent interview with Pure Wow.” I think people will still leave feeling hopeful for Taystee at the end of the day.”
