Baseball star, Michael Kopech and his wife, Vanessa Morgan are getting divorced just days after the Candian actress announced they were expecting a baby boy together.
The Chicago White Sox pitcher, 24, filed for divorce in his home state of Texas on June 19, The Chicago Tribune reported, citing court records. The documents were filed in Morris County and a hearing date was not listed, according to the outlet.
A representative for Morgan confirmed to PEOPLE that Kopech is the father of Morgan’s baby on the way, but declined to comment on the divorce filing.
Last Friday, July 24, the 28-year-old actress shared photos and videos from her gender reveal party, where she revealed that she’s having a baby boy. But Kopech did not appear in any of the pictures or videos.

Exciting news… I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January 💙. This little guy has already brought me so much happiness and a feeling of such a greater purpose. I cannot wait to meet you!! On a personal note, I have had the blessing of growing up in the public eye having started my acting career at age 6. While this has been incredible for me, I am very much looking forward to giving this little guy some room to grow up outside of the public eye, until he tells me otherwise 🙂. Lil one you were made with so much love & already exude a light so strong it warms my belly. Thank you God for this blessing ☺️ I’m just so happy & can’t wait to dedicate everyday to being the best mommy I can be ♥️ “I’ll love you forever I’ll like you for always as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be 🎶 “- if you know you know #preggers 🤰🏽 #quarantine🎁 👶🏼
The couple got engaged last July, after a year of dating and tied the knot this January in an intimate ceremony at the Walton Historic House in Florida.
