Watch: Michael Kopech Files for Divorce From Vanessa Morgan After Baby News

Vanessa Morgan is putting one foot in front of the other—and so is her baby boy!

The Riverdale star has returned to social media with a pregnancy update a little more than two weeks after news broke that her husband, MLB star Michael Kopech, had filed for divorce

"He's a lil kicker," Vanessa tweeted alongside an ultrasound photo, adding, "#bigfoot."

The 28-year-old has remained uncharacteristically quiet on social media since fans learned of the split, and she's yet to comment publicly on Michael's divorce filing. E! News confirmed at the time that the athlete is the father of Vanessa's baby boy. 

Vanessa announced her pregnancy on July 24 with photos from the moment she found out the sex of her baby. "I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January," the actress shared in part. "This little guy has already brought me so much happiness and a feeling of such a greater purpose."

Vanessa's post continued, "The universe works in mysterious ways but always times everything the way it was meant to be. Lil one you were made with so much love & already exude a light so strong it warms my belly. Thank you God for this blessing."

A month before her pregnancy announcement, Michael quietly filed for divorce from Vanessa in his native Texas. Just five months prior, the pair exchanged vows during an intimate wedding ceremony in Florida.

Vanessa told E! News at the time, "We both knew the first day we met that 'this is it' and I'm so excited that today officially starts our forever. Today, I vowed to love my best friend for a lifetime and it was a day spent with those we love in a room filled with endless love. I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him."
