‘Insecure’ Star Dominque Perry Gives Birth To Baby Girl + Shares Precious First Photo & Baby Name

Last month, Dominque Perry, who stars as Tasha the bank teller on HBO’s "Insecure", shared that she was pregnant with her first child. With a gorgeous maternity shot, she wrote: ““It’s like…. I just felt like FINALLY showing you off girl,” she wrote in the caption.

Well now, Petty has announced she has given birth to a baby girl!

The actress shared the first photo of her little bundle of joy, announcing that she had given birth to a daughter she named Zen.

Perry shared a photo to Instagram, writing in the caption, "Zen.... you're so perfect... thank you God for appointing me the wonderful job of being her mommy."

Others are dying to know the identity of the child's father, with some appearing to believe her co-star (and crush), Jay Ellis, is the daddy.

One fan wrote, "[Expletive] really ain’t ish! Lawrence is a [expletive] boi, how the [expletive] you got her out here like a single baby momma. Stay blessed boo, and congratulations on your blessing." (sic)

The actress and dancer announced the pregnancy news on her Instagram account back in April, featuring a bright and bold image of herself doing a photo shoot with her baby bump exposed in a bright red gown. Perry revealed that she’s awaiting the arrival of a baby girl.

She wrote, "It’s like…. I just felt like FINALLY showing you off girl."

"Smile beautiful, what chu lookin mad fo?"

Perry admitted that she didn't exactly plan the pregnancy, but the star had embraced the situation and was clearly excited about welcoming her first child.

The actress wrote on social media, "You weren’t in my plans but you were in Gods plans, and for that it’s insane how much I love you."

The caption of Perry’s Instagram post appeared to hint that the father of her daughter was no longer in the picture. 

She added, "Let’s take over this world young Queen…. just the 2 of us."

The "Insecure" actress plays a love interest of Jay Ellis' character, Lawrence. She previously admitted that she actually attempted to shoot her shot at her co-star in real life. 


She shared, "It was like my second day of filming, and I always thought Jay Ellis was so fine. One day I said, ‘You know what? I’m going to shoot my shot... It was like my second day, and I was still the new kid on the block. I have this thing I do where I do these googly eyes. I have big eyes, so they work for me."

She recalled, "I remember just staring at him and giving him the googly eyes and he kind of looked at me and was like, ‘Why are you looking like that? Are you ok?’ [...]When he said that, I picked up my face off of the floor. I never shooted my shot with Jay Ellis ever again. 'You are my brother; I get it. This is a work thing. I get it, Jay!' But I’m just glad that [it] didn’t happen around anybody else but me and him, it would have been embarrassing."

Coast to coast.

Congrats to Dominque for being a first time parent!
