The Phantom of the Opera actress welcomed her first child with hubby Sam Esmail earlier this year. “On a sunny Monday morning, at 8:13AM, we welcomed our daughter into the world,” Rossum announced via Instagram on Tuesday, May 25. In the first photo, the brunette babe displayed her baby bump, and in the second, she was joined by Esmail as he cradled her belly. The last photo then shows what appears to be their daughter's footprint.

The Mr. Robot creator popped the question in 2015 and the lovebirds walked down the aisle two years later.
