Vanessa Morgan brought her unborn baby to the 2024 Critics Choice Awards and no one even knew.

“Was 3 months pregnant here,” Morgan, 32, wrote via Instagram Stories on Saturday, July 6. “Almost couldn’t zip this dress up.”

Morgan attended the Critics Choice Awards in January, where she presented with Wild Cards costar Giacomo Gianniotti. The Riverdale alum, for her part, stunned in a red, high-low Zuhair Murad dress that featured a tulle train. Morgan matched her look with delicate silver jewelry and wore her hair in long waves with blunt-cut bangs.

Nearly seven months later, Morgan revealed her pregnancy news.
