Expanding their brood! Steven Yeun and his wife, Joana Pak, are expecting their second child together.
Pak revealed the exciting news via Instagram on Monday, December 3, with a bathroom selfie of her bump alongside a string of sweet emojis. She and the Walking Dead alum, 34, welcomed son Jude, 18 months, in March 2017, three months after tying the knot.
Yeun is best known for playing Glenn Rhee on the hit AMC drama from the first to the seventh season, when he was killed off by villain Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). The actor opened up about departing the series during an interview with Slate in October, admitting that he wasn’t satisfied with the role.
“I won’t speak for other Asian American actors, because I don’t know what they’re being offered. But for me, it’s like: nice guy, dependable, supportive, benign. Beige. As a Korean man, I am not beige,” he told the publication at the time. “I felt beige with Glenn. That was a little bit of the frustration that I could never explain to the wider society, to fans of the show.”
Even so, Yeun noted that he felt “incredibly grateful” for the opportunity to star on the series. “I woudn’t take that experience back at all. I made lifelong friendships. I got to learn so much,” he raved. “But I will say that I felt cramped. I felt like there wasn’t space for me to fully spread all of who I was, and that was partly due to me too, because when I started, all I was trying to do was to work within the parameters that they were giving me. And then, over time, I just outgrew it.”
