Time to start thinking of names. Tiffany Thornton announced the gender of her third child in an adorable video on Saturday, May 19, revealing that this baby is going to be very different from her other two because … it’s a girl!
The Sonny with a Chance star took to Instagram to share an adorable clip with her husband, Josiah Capaci, and her two sons, Kenneth, 5, and Bentley, 4.
Thornton, 32, looked adorable in a maxidress surrounded by her family as Capaci gently popped a balloon that exploded with pink confetti to reveal that her two boys will be getting a little sister. The actress and her husband let out an adorable laugh and clapped as the former Disney star jumped up and down in excitement.
The actress revealed that she was expecting her first child with the Arkansas-based pastor in a sweet social media post last month, posting a pic of her sons holding a sign that read: “New best friend coming November 2018.”
She captioned the pic, “‘For this child I have prayed, and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart.’ 1 Samuel 1:27.”
The So Random! star tied the knot to Capaci in October 2017, two years after her husband, Christopher Carney, died in a car crash in Arkansas. The pair had been married for four years, and Thornton faced criticism from some who thought she remarried too soon after his death.
Following the backlash, Thornton took to social media to address the negative comments. “This. This is love. That all encompassing, enduring, accepting, near perfect love. The kind that trumps my need to snap back at people who have the audacity to comment on my Instagram about whether I loved my first husband or not. Jo came along EXACTLY when God knew I needed him,” she wrote at the time.
The post continued: “It wasn’t my choice to fall in love so quickly after Chris passed but I was growing so comfortable with being alone that it was becoming unhealthy. Looking back now I think God saw that if I went too long without love that it would become increasingly difficult for me to submit to the authority of a husband after being set in my own ways. I will always love [him.] The beautiful thing about love is that it multiplies as new blessings come into your life. I don’t have to share one bucket of love with the special people in my life.”
