Star of stage and screen, Ruthie Ann Miles has given birth to a baby girl. This heartwarming news comes after the actor lost her child and unborn baby in March of 2018. A driver in Park Slope, Brooklyn ran a red light and seriously injured the actor.
Miles made the announcement on Saturday just in time for Mother’s Day. She shared a photo of her daughter’s precious little feet with the caption, “Welcome to the world, Baby Hope Elizabeth!” And, also writing, “3 generations of April babies” with yellow heart emoji.
Ruthie celebrated Mother’s Day by spending it with her newborn.
Jonathan Blumenstein is the child’s father. They announced the pregnancy in late March and we were expecting a Spring baby for the couple. Before the arrival of their daughter, the couple suffered unspeakable loss.
Miles was crossing Ninth Street at Fifth Avenue with her 4-year-old daughter back in 2018 when a driver slammed into them, killing her daughter as well as another child, Joshua Lew, crossing the intersection with his mother, who like Miles, was also badly injured.
At the time, Miles was seven months pregnant. The injuries she sustained eventually resulted in the death of her unborn child.
After the incident, she decided to step back from public life and took some time to privately grieve. Months later, she returned to the stage to reprise her award-winning role as Lady Thiang in a revival of The King and I in London’s West End. She then attended and performed at a benefit concert for Camelot at Lincoln Center before she joined the cast of the TV series All Rise.
Congratulations are in order!
After Miles posted the birth announcement of her newborn, comments from fellow stars poured in.
“Oh, Ruthie Ann! Oh, oh, oh!” actor BD Wong wrote.
“Squeeeeeeee‼️Congratulations friend????????????????????. Welcome to the world baby girl‼️‼️❤️” actor Reggie Lee wrote in a comment.
“So deeply happy for you!!! ❤️” actor Caissie Levy wrote.
This exciting and excellent news is just what we hoped for Miles who has been through so much over the past couple of years. She continues to dazzle on All Rise and the show was recently picked up for a second season by CBS this May. Congrats!
