Emmy Rossum is sharing her baby girl with the internet while also encouraging others to get vaccinated for COVID-19.
This past weekend, Rossum, 34, posted her first photo of her daughter with husband Sam Esmail. In the adorable image, Rossum is pictured kissing her baby, whose face is turned away from the camera, on the head.
“When I was pregnant I got vaccinated,” the actress wrote alongside her post. “Not only did we have a healthy, beautiful baby girl but we also just learned our daughter now has antibodies….in short, stop being an irresponsible idiot and get the vaccine,” Rossum ended her caption, which Esmail, 43, also shared on Twitter.
Rossum shared back in May how she and her husband, 43, had welcomed their first child together, after keeping her pregnancy mum. Rossum also posted the good news in a black and white Instagram post. One showcased Rossum’s baby bump while another captured Esmail cradling her belly.
“5.24.21,” Rossum captioned the post. “On a sunny Monday morning, at 8:13AM, we welcomed our daughter into the world.”
The new mom shared a picture of what looked to be her newborn’s footprint.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky spoke during a White House COVID-19 briefing back in April, citing a recent study that suggests there is no evidence that the COVID-19 vaccine causes any form of concern for pregnant individuals or their babies.
After getting the vaccine, the individuals revealed they had typical side effects associated with a vaccine, such as pain at the injection site, but the report said that the data “did not show obvious safety signals.”
“Importantly, no safety concerns were observed for people vaccinated in the third trimester or safety concerns for their babies. As such, the CDC recommends that pregnant people receive the COVID-19 vaccine,” said Walensky.
“We know that this is a deeply personal decision, and I encourage people to talk to their doctors and their primary care providers to determine what is best for them and for their baby.”
