Lucy Liu has welcomed her first child at age 46, using a gestational surrogate.
The Charlie’s Angels actress shared a sweet photo of her newborn son on social media. And he is precious!
Liu posted the photo on Instagram, captioning the snap, “Introducing the new little man in my life, my son Rockwell Lloyd Liu. In ♥.
Lucy’s representative confirmed the star’s happy news in a statement.
Her rep said, “I can confirm that Lucy Liu is the proud mother of Rockwell Lloyd Liu, brought into the world via gestational carrier. Mom and baby are healthy and happy.”
A gestational carrier is often used if a woman is unable to carry the baby herself. The surrogate in implanted with an embryo created usually by in vitro fertilization (IVF) and unrelated to the baby she carries.
Lucy keeps her love life on the down-low, but has been romantically linked in the past to Noam Gottesman, actor Will mcCormack, and writer-film director Zach Helm.
Lucy Liu is probably best know for her role alongside Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz in the 2000 film, Charlie’s Angels. She also starred in the sequel Charlie’s Angel: Full Throttle in 2003.
The first movie was a box office hit, taking in $264.1 million worldwide and the second film brought in $259.2 million worldwide.
Lucy is also known for playing the role of Ling Woo in the television show Ally McBeal.
Congrats to Lucy Liu on her adorable baby boy!
