The Bravolebrity's famous friends quickly took to the comments to congratulate her. "Awww congratulations," The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Garcelle Beauvais wrote, while her The Traitors co-star Ryan Lochte shared, "Soo happy for you."

The 40-year-old announced she was expecting in December 2022. "I am absolutely thrilled to become a mother," she revealed at the time. "It's something I've always hoped for so this is truly a dream come true!"

She later gushed "it's been the easiest pregnancy ever," noting that the experience made her feel "so lucky."

In January, Chastain got candid about her decision to raise her child as a single parent.
