He’s the proud father of a newborn baby girl, and his gratitude to his wife this Mother’s Day knows no bounds.
Actor Joshua Jackson posted a sweet photo of his wife Jodie Turner-Smith in mommy-mode on Sunday, an appropriate selection as it was Mother’s Day.
In the lovely closeup image, Jodie, 33, is seen cradling the head of their newborn baby girl, who came into the world late last month and is the first baby for them both.
Jodie has a perfectly contented look on her face in repose, while on her head she wears a beautifully colorful patterned headwrap.
Her days-old daughter also wears a head covering, in pale green.
Jackson, 40, wrote incredibly glowing things to his wife in the lengthy and heartfelt caption.
‘Dear Jodie,’ he began. ‘On this most special of Mother’s days, I want to thank you for the being the light that you are. For the passion with which you threw yourself into nurturing and protecting our child when she was in your womb. For the dedication and will you showed bringing her into the world.
‘I have never witnessed a more powerful being than you through those moments,’ the Dawson’s Creek alum continued.
‘Thank you for making me a father. For trusting me enough to embark on this journey together’, he added later. ‘I am humbled more and more every day by that. I love you.
‘I love seeing you enter the pantheon of mothers. And I look forward to walking this path by your side as we nurture this little engine of joy you have blessed the world with,’ Jackson concluded.
In the image, Turner-Smith’s eyes are downcast and she has a hint of a smile on her lips.
The Queen & Slim actress wears a lovely golden septum ring in the photo.
On April 21st, Jodie and Joshua – who secretly wed in December – revealed the happy news of their child’s birth via their representatives, as told to People Magazine.
‘Both mother and baby are happy and healthy,’ a rep confirmed.
