Baby makes three! Orange Is the New Black star Yael Stone has given birth and welcomed a baby girl with her partner, Jack Manning Bancroft, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.
“On May 30th Pemau Stone Bancroft was born to Yael Stone and Jack Manning Bancroft,” a rep for the Australian actress told Us Weekly on Thursday, June 14. “Her mum and dad are very tired and very much in love. She was named after her great great great grandmother who provides a powerful link to the past, the Bancroft’s oldest link to the Djanbun clan of the Bunjalung nation.”
Stone, who is best known for her role as Lorna Morella on the Netflix original series, and Bancroft, the CEO of AIME, a global mentoring organization for disadvantaged youth, started dating in 2017. She announced they were expecting her first child in November.
The actress and activist shared a photo of her ready-to-pop baby bump on May 28 via Instagram, alongside a message about domestic violence. A week earlier, Stone posted a pic of her bare bump in a rolled up “Phenomenal Woman” T-shirt.
“Moving into the final stages of this incredible journey with respect and gratitude for the women who have come before me. #phenomenalwoman,” she wrote on May 18. “Photo by the one and only @alexvaughanphoto.”
Stone also showed off her baby bump at the SAG Awards in January.
“The Fancy Preggo again grasps the belly insisting ‘Yes! A tiny human is growing inside me!’” she captioned a red carpet photo on Instagram at the time. “Thank you @sarahslutsky Dress: Cynthia Rowley Shoe: Sam Edelman Jewelry: Selin Kent + Anita Ko Makeup: @michellemungcal Hair: @ianjameshair.”
Stone also shared a photo from the night of costar Taylor Schilling, writing, “The Fancy Preggo finds a pal to also hold the belly and confirm ‘Yes, it’s true, it’s a baby.’”
