'You' star Penn Badgley is expecting his first child with wife Domino Kirke
Turns out, Penn Badgley does have something major in common with his You character Joe Goldberg— both are about to become first-time fathers. We’re pretty sure that’s where the similarities end, though (you know, considering the whole stalker-murderer thing). Today, February 10th, Badgley’s wife Domino Kirke announced in an emotional Instagram post that she’s pregnant after previously having two miscarriages.
Badgley and Kirke tied the knot in 2017, and this will be her second child (the singer has a 10-year-old son from a previous relationship). Kirke opened up about the her struggles with miscarriages in her Instagram post revealing the pregnancy:
We’re so happy for the couple, and we hope that Kirke’s honesty about her pregnancy journey is helpful to other women suffering from pregnancy loss.
Having some real-life parenting experience will likely be helpful for Badgley’s take on Joe Goldberg in You Season 3, although, hardly anything about You mirrors real life. Congrats to Badgley and Kirke on their family news—we’re much happier for them than we are for Joe and Love, that’s for sure.
