Congratulations are in order for Kim Fields!
The actress and director, who played the roller-skating Tootie Ramsey on the long-running ’80s sitcom “The Facts of Life,” welcomed her second child into the world Tuesday…at the age of 44.
Kim gave birth to Quincy Xavier Morgan in Atlanta at 10:30 a.m. ET. The bundle of joy weighed in at 8 lbs., 8 oz. It’s the actress and director’s second child with husband Christopher L. Morgan. They are also proud parents to 6-year-old son Sebastian.
“We are so blessed and grateful to God for this newest gift to our family,” the couple said in a written statement.
Fields has been a consistent presence in the entertainment industry since “The Facts of Life” went off the air in 1988. She also starred for five years in the ’90s Fox sitcom “Living Single,” and is currently a successful TV episode director. She’s directed several episodes of “Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns” and “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,” and she’s even recorded several songs as a R&B singer.
Kim’s next project is “Holiday Love: The Rebirth” — a holiday special she directed and that she and Morgan also executive produced.
