Photo Flash: GLEE's Heather Morris Gives Birth to Baby Boy
It seems liked just yesterday that we reported that Glee star Heather Morris was expecting her first child. Well, it's 9 months later (or 6 since the announcement.) Morris and the star's longtime boyfriend Taylor Hubbell, whom she has known since high school, welcomed a new baby boy, Elijah, earlier this weekend. Congrats to the happy couple!
Photos of the child were quickly posted by family on social media.
Morris played sweet but spacey cheerleader Brittany Pierce on the long-running FOX musical series. Morris was one of Beyoncé's backup dancers on The Beyoncé Experience world tour and, following that, worked again with Beyoncé on a mini "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" promotional tour that included 2008 performances on the American Music Awards, Saturday Night Live, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Today, and MTV's Total Request Live finale.
She also danced backup for Beyoncé and Tina Turner at the 50th Grammy Awards in 2008. She later appeared in a small role in the movie Fired Up, where she met choreographer Zach Woodlee. Following that film, Woodlee brought Morris in to dance on other shows he was choreographing, including episodes of Eli Stone and Swingtown, the movie Bedtime Stories, and eventually Glee.
