Glee star Ali Stroker announces birth of baby boy Jesse as he turns one month

Glee actress Ali Stroker has announced the birth of her first child, a baby boy named Jesse.

The joyful news came as the bundle of joy turned one month old, with Ali sharing several photographs of her family on her Instagram.

In the caption, the Broadway star wrote: “World meet Jesse Kenneth Perlow!' she gushed. 'Born 11/8 healthy and so happy to be here!”

She added: “Life will never be the same. We are so lucky that you are our boy!”

Alongside her husband David Perlow, 35 year old Ali beamed as she posed for the first snap which announced the arrival of her son.

Sat in her wheelchair with the little one in her arms, Ali smiles as husband David holds up an adorable sign which read: “JESSIE 1 MONTH OLD”.

In other photographs, fans of Ali get a glimpse into family life with the actress sharing beautiful moments from her first month as a mother.

Despite the colder weather, the actress looked cosy as her young son nestles against her – barely a few days old at the time.

Dressed in an autumnal plaid shirt, the Glee star seems to glow as she gazes lovingly at the camera.

However, Ali isn’t the only one who appeared to be besotted with newborn Jesse.

In another adorable moment, her husband David snuggled up with the little one as they nap together.

Both father and son can be seen to smile, as they blissfully dream.

David, who is a theatre director, originally met Glee actress Ali in college but it wasn’t until 2015 that the couple started dating.

During this time, Ali would eventually become the first wheelchair-bound Broadway actress and even went on to in a Tony for her role in a reimagined version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Oklahoma!.

The actress has been paraplegic ever since a car crash left her wheelchair-bound at only two years old.

However, this has not stopped Ali who won reality show The Glee Project which saw the then-unknown actress audition for a role in the beloved musical series.

Capturing the hearts of audiences and producers, Ali was cast the bride’s niece in a 2013 wedding theme episode before going to make it big on Broadway.

Having finally tied the knot with David in July 2021, the actress then announced that she was pregnant a year later on their first anniversary.

With their close ties to musical theatre, the couple have received plenty of well wishes including from Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth.

The actress, who is best known for playing Glinda the Good Witch in Wicked, wrote in the comments: “Dying!! The cute factor!!!”

Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson also was delighted for the couple, writing: “Um that is a VERY cute baby.”
