What an incredible year it's been for Leslie Odom, Jr.!

The Hamilton star—who won a Tony Award for his performance in the play earlier this year—announced that he and his wife Nicolette Robinson are expecting a baby.

Robinson was the first to post the news, sharing a Polaroid photo with a note to their child across it that read: "You're on your way, and we couldn't be happier. Love, mom and dad." 

She also captioned the sweet photo, "One of the greatest gifts we could ever ask for. Leslie and I are so excited to share the news that we have a sweet baby on the way."

Odom, Jr., not only reposted his wife's photo, but he also shared his own, writing another sweet note to the baby.

"Little one, you're on our mind all the time. Keep eating and growing!" he captioned the photo. "We love you and we're already so proud of you! Love, your mom and dad."

So precious!

Meanwhile, the actor will have some time to focus on the baby now that he's completed his run with Hamilton

Over the summer, Odom, Jr., announced he was leaving the production during a Facebook Live streaming. "I am indeed leaving on July 9. It has just been the most completely wonderful, totally healing, and inspiring experience from beginning to end," Odom, Jr., said in the video. "I will never forget the people that I've met here. I'll never forget all of you."

He continued, "I'm excited to have a blank page, and I'm excited to go out and find something new."

Looks like that something new is becoming a daddy! Congratulations to the growing family!
