Vanessa Morgan & Michael Kopech Split Revealed After Pregnancy Announcement

It’s over between “Riverdale” star Vanessa Morgan, 28, and White Sox player Michael Kopech, 24, who tied the knot in January.

The news comes a few days after Vanessa announced she was expecting a baby boy, without any mention of Kopech.

Now, the Chicago Tribune reports Michael filed for divorce on June 19. The paper also confirmed with a rep that Michael is the baby’s father.

Kopech popped the question at Mooney Falls in Arizona last July, and they tied the knot in Florida five months later.

The baseball player recently opted not to play for the Chicago White Sox for the 2020 MLB season.

Last week, Vanessa shared gender-reveal videos and a sonogram on Instagram, writing, “Was debating keeping this part of my life hidden but I knew people would see pictures eventually with my belly & I wanted you guys to hear it from me. I do want to keep this chapter of my life private but did want to be the first to share the news. I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January 💙”

Morgan said the pregnancy has given her new perspective, explaining, “It’s almost like everything I thought mattered in this life has completely changed.. We’re here for such a greater purpose and life is so precious. I can’t believe how much growth & strength you’ve already given me as your mom. It’s like God knew I needed you, my angel. The universe works in mysterious ways but always times everything the way it was meant to be.”

The actress continued, “Lil one you were made with so much love & already exude a light so strong it warms my belly. Thank you God for this blessing ☺️ I’m just so happy & can’t wait to dedicate everyday to being the best mommy I can be 💙 “I’ll love you forever I’ll like you for always as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be 🎶 - if you know you know #preggers 🤰🏽 👶🏼”
