I ate a big sandwich and it has a heartbeat! Completely head over heels in love and excited to announce @nevschulman and I are bringing a new bb person into the world. It’s been a totally wild ride so far and I wrote a lil article for @attndotcom about the first few months of bby reflection/reactions (link in profile). A big thank you to everyone who loves and supports us. Consistently blown away by all the good things people do on our behalf. Endless gratitude for @arnold_daniel capturing our shock and awe in this photograph and so many others. I couldn’t feel more humbled or lucky to know you. SO EXCITED FOR THIS BABYYYY!!!

Nev’s partner in all things Catfish, Max Joseph, chimed in with his congrats:

Hopefully we don’t suck at it or turn into know-it-all zombies. Mainly we’re just really happy and excited.”
