Rebel Wilson isn’t engaged, but she has other really big news: She’s a mom.

The Pitch Perfect and bridesmaids The actress, 42, announced on Monday that she welcomed her first child via surrogate – a milestone that has been “years in the making”.

“Beyond proud to announce the birth of my first child, Royce Lillian, born last week via surrogate,” Wilson wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of her daughter in a pink dress on top of a soft blanket. “I can’t even describe the love I have for her, she is a beautiful miracle!”

Wilson said she will be “forever grateful to everyone involved”, saying they know who they are as becoming a mum has been “years in the making”. She continued personally “thank you to my wonderful surrogate mother for carrying her and birthing her with such grace and care. Thank you for helping me start my own family, it’s an amazing gift. The BEST gift!!”

The Senior year The star said she is ready to go “give little Roycie all the love imaginable” and said she is already “learning fast”. She added that she has “a lot of respect for all the moms out there” and is “proud to be in your club.”

The Aussie star has been candid about her journey to motherhood. She visited a fertility doctor in 2019 to freeze her eggs and was told she would have a better chance if she lost weight. Wilson, who has polycystic ovary syndrome, which can affect fertility, prioritized her health and fitness and lost 80kg, saying People magazine in May, “I thought about the needs of a future child [and] that really inspired me to get healthier.”

“I would love to have a family,” she told the report. “I’m just going to do it myself right now because of the biological clock. If I meet the right person, it’s great, and then they can match whatever happens. It’s great that the technology exists. You have so many options with surrogacy and sperm donors. I didn’t start thinking about fertility until I was 39, so it feels quite late, but there are women in their 40s who have achieved success. Look at Janet Jackson, she’s quite inspiring.”

Wilson also has a new partner. In June, he announced that he had fallen in love with jewelry and clothing designer Ramona Agruma. It was later revealed that she was pressured to come out after a Sydney Morning Herald The gossip columnist revealed (in a since-deleted column) that the paper had planned to break the news.

While Wilson and Agruma are happily together, they are not engaged. Over the weekend, Wilson had to set the record straight on the matter amid several reports that they were engaged. However, they looked happier than ever in the photo along with clarifying their relationship status, which showed them smiling with their heads touching outside Sleeping Beauty’s Castle at Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
