The “High School Musical” alumna announced the birth of a baby girl on Wednesday morning, sharing a cute black-and-white photo of a tiny hand wrapped around her finger.
“Jupiter Iris French arrived on the earth side on 3.23.21,” she wrote.
Ashley first announced her pregnancy in September, sharing a series of photos cradling her growing bump. This is her first child with her husband Christopher French.
Ashley and Christopher got married in September 2014. “The best day of my life! Introducing Mr. and Mrs. French September 8, 2014 ”, Ashley captioned a beautiful wedding photo of herself and Christopher. The “Hellcats” star wore a traditional white dress for the happy event, with loose wave hair and a flower crown.
Ashley has been very open about her relationship with her body throughout her pregnancy. In early February, she shared a nude photo of her growing belly and opened up to kissing her changing body.

“Most of the time, we give our love to others,” she captioned the photo. “Let’s start loving ourselves and our bodies in all their forms. Our bodies do a lot for us every day and we neglect to recognize it. Thank your body and say I love you.
It wasn’t long before Ashley’s famous friends congratulated her on becoming a mom in the comments section. Lea Michele wrote: “Congratulations, beautiful mom!” while Sarah Hyland added: “A QUEEN AND HER PRINCESS !!!!!! ”
