In the latest issue of Closer Weekly, actress Kim Fields shares the exclusive first photos of her miracle 4-month-old baby boy, Quincy.
“I know it sounds like a cliché, but it’s a blessing,” said Kim, 44.
Kim’s pregnancy came as a surprise after she suffered two miscarriages before discovering she was expecting again. “There was so much gratitude that he was here and healthy.”
The actress, best known as Tootie on Facts of Life, started feeling ill and believing she was perimenopausal, her husband, Broadway actor Christopher Morgan, insisted that she go see the doctor.
“He thought I might be dehydrated, then I find out I’m two months pregnant! I was stunned out of my mind,” Kim says. “We were both overjoyed,” adds Christopher.
Quincy was born on December 3 by cesarean section, and Kim shared fond memories of her delivery. She had put together a special playlist on her iPad to play in the delivery room, but left it behind so she and her husband sang a cappella.
“Turns out the anesthesiologist was totally into singing, so we were doing three-part harmonies and holding hands!” she told Closer with a laugh. “We were singing ‘Family’ from Dreamgirls when Quincy came out.”
The baby, who is named after famed music producer Quincy Jones, resembles his big brother, Sebastian.
“They look a lot alike. Sebastian loves bragging about his little brother. He tells his teachers at school everything he does. He is Quincy’s publicist at this point,” Kim jokes.
And although Kim thinks she and Chris “are done” adding on to their family, she admits she’ll “never say never. Being a mom is really the greatest role in my life.”
