Actress Ashley Tisdale took to Instagram to reveal the gender of her first child with her husband, musician and composer Christopher French.

It’s a girl! The producer is clearly elated at the news of welcoming a baby girl into the world. In her caption, she shared, “This year has obviously been hard. For so many. Ups and downs, and an emotional roller coaster. I think this day was by far my favorite day EVER! I cried I was so happy.”

Ashley teased her gender reveal at the beginning of the month. She posted a photo of her and Chris cutting a cake but the color of the inside was not visible. The musician wrote, “I’ve been wondering if we should share the gender with all of you. As you know I like to keep as much as I can close to my heart but I’m so excited maybe I should …. yes or no? Comment below!” A few weeks later, she finally shared!

Ashley and her husband announced in September that they were expecting their first child. The High School Musical star and Chris each posted photos together of Ashley cradling her baby bump. Both of them left the caption of their posts blank.

Congratulations to Ashley and Chris on the news of welcoming a daughter. We look forward to learning what they name her!
