Vampire Diaries star Candice King announces baby daughter's birth

From Digital Spy

Congratulations are in order for The Vampire Diaries star Candice King and her husband Joe, who have welcomed their second child into the world.

The Caroline Forbes actress announced she was expecting again back in August, stating that she was five months along at the time, so her pregnancy has run the entire length of the pandemic so far, give or take.

Sharing a cute photo of her newborn's hands clasping her thumb on her Instagram, she wrote: "Last week our baby girl flew into the world and into our hearts. We love you Josephine June King! 12/1/20."

The Vampire Diaries fans were very excited at how close Josephine's name was to Josie, one of the adoptive daughters of Candice's character on the show.

When announcing her pregnancy, Candice explained why she waited until five months to reveal it publicly, stating: "I'm someone who likes to keep the pregnancy to myself and obviously with my partner and our immediate friends and family until I feel comfortable and confident that I'm in a good place in my pregnancy and that my baby's okay and I'm okay as best as we can be.

"It's been kind of odd to share the experience in discussing it with friends and family because I can't really physically share the experience of hugging friends right now comfortably, or knowing when I'm going to see my family next – and I haven't seen them this entire pregnancy so far. And so it's all weighed on me emotionally."
