In November, the star took to social media again to share a photo of her daughter, who Brooks described as “perfect.”
The baby was born Nov. 16, according to the Instagram post. “Orange” co-star Laverne Cox was among the hundreds of thousands of fans and friends to react to the post. “Congratulations darling,” Cox wrote. “You’re a mommy.”
