American actress Molly Kate Bernard. She became famous for her part as Lauren Heller on Younger.
Molly Bernard Has Conceived a Child
They are “thrilled” to be expecting their first child, but the 34-year-old actress confessed it is “daunting” to be “forming a queer family” at a time when LGBTQ+ rights are “constantly under danger.” The former “Younger” actress and her wife Hannah Lieberman tied the knot in September 2021.
Molly announced the exciting news that she and her partner, @liebhan, were expecting their first gay baby in an Instagram post in which she showed off her swelling belly: “Thrilled to share the extremely wonderful news that @liebhan and I are expecting our first gayby! As eager as we are to become parents, we are over the moon about this whole thing.
Building a gay family while lgbtq+ rights are under continual attack is a tall order. I count it as a great privilege to be a parent alongside Hannah, and loving her has been one of the greatest joys of my life. At the end of her message, Molly encouraged everyone to go out and cast their ballots in the upcoming midterm elections.
She went on, “Because I am what I am, I’d like to say this: pregnancy is a choice, no one should be forced by law to do this. And please, I beg you to support candidates in the next midterm elections who will defend, not destroy, our freedom to raise children together.
Molly has stated in the past that playing the role of pansexual publicist Lauren on ‘Younger’ aided her in coming to terms with her own sexuality.
In 2017, she commented, “Her confidence has benefited me a lot. Seeing her so assured helped me overcome some of my own insecurities and doubts about myself, and she also aided me in coming to terms with my sexual orientation.
“I don’t see myself as a heterosexual person.” She said she mostly dated guys, but that she thought it was “absolutely conceivable and great” to date a woman or trans person. For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt this way,” she continued, “but now that it’s part of the dialogue, we can talk about it. The corresponding words exist.
