Jurnee Smollett-Bell is officially a mother of a healthy baby boy.

On Tuesday evening, the actress confirmed on Instagram that she and husband, Josiah Bell, welcomed their first child together.

In an image posted on the social media website, the Underground beauty can be seen holding her son tightly against her chest. “Hunter Zion Bell. So in love with our little man,” she wrote, stamping the caption with three heart emojis.

Josiah shared a separate photo on his Instagram page of a the little guy squeezing his finger. “He’s here…Hunter Zion Bell……@jurneebell I’m so in love,” he captioned the sweet snapshot.


The gorgeous couple revealed they were expecting back in June with a sweet Instagram message that read: “He+Me+Baby= Three. So in love with this beautiful blessing God has given us. #WeArePregnant.”


Jurnee’s brother, Jussie Smollett, has yet to comment about the arrival of his nephew; he did, however, rave about his sister’s pregnancy when it was first announced.

“My little baby is having a baby!!!!!!!! @jurneebell I remember mommy giving birth to you and now you’re about to have a baby of your own. I love you so so so so much. This is the most blessed event in life and you & @josiahbell are built for it. Love y’all so much. #BabyBell is coming,” he wrote.

Yep, pretty sure Jussie is going to be one hell of an uncle.

Jurnee and Josiah tied the knot in October 2010.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
