Fuller, who stars in both LMS and Netflix's Orange Is the New Black is expecting her first child with husband, Matthew Bryan Feld. However, at one point, having a baby seemed like an impossible thought for the actress because she's not only suffered from endometriosis, but a host of other chronic illnesses.
"After battling chronic illness and endometriosis my whole life and being told for years it would be nearly impossible to get pregnant, my love and I are expecting a little miracle baby!" she announced last month. "We are shocked, terrified and elated — and just pray we can be our best selves in bringing our little angel into this world."
She took to Instagram to wish Feld his first happy Father's Day calling him the "most handsomest future papa."
"Happy first official dad day to the most handsomest future papa," she wrote. "This lil bear and I are the luckiest. there is no human on this earth i could even imagine venturing into this terrifying chapter with. together, we can do anything. here's hopin' he looks as good as you do in a lime green suit!"
