Kim Fields, who is pregnant with her new baby, has revealed the upcoming child’s name and gender, be it boy or girl. While Kate Middleton shrouded her baby in secrecy, Tootie thinks it’s just a fact of life.
Fields, the 44-year-old who became a household name for her portrayal of Tootie on The Facts of Life, is making headlines again. This time, the star announced that she is pregnant on television show, The Real. There she revealed that his name would be Quincy Xavier.

This will be her second son with husband Christopher Morgan. The new addition will be the brother of Sebastian, who is already 6.
In a touching and heartfelt moment of sincerity, Fields opened up about the difficulties she and Morgan were having when it came to baby making. The pair have been trying for quite some time, as Fields told the women of The Real:
“We've actually been trying for a couple years. We had gotten pregnant twice and [miscarried]...Chris and I were very blessed to really have one another, to have our family and friends and our God to really get us through that."
Then, Fields explains how she found out the happy news:
“Funny enough, for a minute I thought I was getting pre-menopausal ‘cuz certain things were starting to be irregular and then other symptoms started—my memory and I was clumsier than normal which I couldn’t even believe was possible. Then our son got sick with a stomach virus and I caught it. Chris said, ‘No, babe, you’re a little sicker than Sebastian. You need to go and get that checked out’ and I said,’Okay.’ They tested me and said, ‘Oh honey, you’re not dehydrated. You’re two months pregnant.’”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
