Congratulations to Orange Is The New Black‘s Yael Stone!
Us Weekly reports that the Australian actress, who plays Lorna Morella on the hit Netflix series, gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, with her partner, Jack Manning Bancroft. They named their daughter Pemau. Stone’s rep confirmed the news to the magazine with a statement. “On May 30th Pemau Stone Bancroft was born to Yael Stone and Jack Manning Bancroft,” the spokesperson shared. “Her mum and dad are very tired and very much in love.”
The rep added that the kiddo was named after her great-great-great-grandmother, who is the Bancroft family’s “oldest link to the Djanbun clan of the Bunjalung nation.”
Stone and Bancroft, the CEO of the global mentoring program AIME, reportedly first started dating in 2017. They later announced that they were expecting their first kid together in November (via the Daily Mail).
Speaking with People magazine at the 2018 SAG Post-Awards Gala in January, Stone revealed that she wasn’t going to find out the sex of her baby until she gave birth. “We don’t know and we’re not going to find out just because it’s so fun,” she said. “There are so few surprises, right?”
Congrats again to Stone and Bancroft on the birth of their child.
The sixth season of Orange Is the New Black premieres on Friday, July 27.
