Kim 'Tootie' Fields expecting first child

12/18/2006 at 12:40 PM ET

Update: Kim confirms the pregnancy to People, saying that she and her boyfriend Christopher Morgan, 30, decided this summer to start actively trying for a baby. They’ve been together for "a couple of years," and one day over the summer while on the subway, Kim’s boyfriend told her, ‘"I’m ready to start our family." Kim says, "It was beautiful and I started to weep."

Kim is due in May. Of pregnancy, she says, "It is amazing, surreal…For as maternal as I’ve felt all my life, it still has the ‘Wow!’ factor."

Kim and Chris don’t yet know the sex, but they have chosen names -"If she’s a girl, Aria Grace, and if he’s a boy, Sebastian Alexander."

Originally posted December 4th: Former Facts of Life /Diff’rent Strokes star Kim Fields, 37, aka ‘Tootie,’ is expecting her first child, the New York Post reports. Friends say Kim is three months along, but no word on the father.

She was on ET with her boyfriend last week and said the boy would be called Sam after his initials: Sebastian Alexander Morgan

Courtney – I don’t understand your comment. What are you implying?

Awww, beautiful names! Both have a great “ring” to them and are just different enough to be interesting. Congrats to her and Chris.

It says she was 3 months on December 4th, the date of the original post.

If your friend is due at the end of May she is not even 4 months along yet. She will only be 4 months at the end of December where she will have 5 months left in her pregnancy.

The dates make perfect sense, your friend doesn’t.

I mean if she is only 3 months along, she would be due like the middle of June, not May……thats all I was saying….

That’s wonderful news for Kim and her boyfriend. Those names they chose for the baby are beautiful names. I especially love the Aria Grace for a girl. 🙂

If she’s 3 months along at the end of November, December to May is 6 months…Anyway it’s only a month out, it all depends on when the info was heard, confirmed then posted. There always will be a discrepency in dates until it is confirmed by the people in question. All that really matters is that the baby is healthy.

This is besides the point but my friend is 18 weeks along, due may 22 which is 4 1/2 months…..that being said, im happy for Kim and cant wait to see the baby……
