Madelaine Petsch has defended her Riverdale co-star Vanessa Morgan, after trolls left “disgusting” comments on her Instagram.
Over the weekend, Vanessa announced on Instagram that she’s expecting her first child with Michael Kopech – but just days later, multiple outlets reported that the baseball player had filed for divorce.
After the news broke, an Instagram user commented on Vanessa’s post: “Don’t disrespect our pitcher like that,” in reference to the White Sox player.
Jumping to her friend’s defence, Madelaine responded: “Honestly, if I see one more comment like this I’ll lose it.”
“Vanessa is a beautiful mother to be and the hate and disrespect I’m seeing on this post about her bringing a new life into this world is disgusting,” she added.
Madelaine and Vanessa became friends after they were cast as Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz in the hit series Riverdale, and Madelaine even acted as a bridesmaid at Michael and Vanessa’s wedding back in January.
Michael filed for a divorce on June 19th, a month prior to Vanessa’s recent pregnancy announcement.
Online records confirming the divorce were obtained by The Chicago Tribune, and a rep for Vanessa confirmed to E! News that Michael is the baby’s father.
Over the weekend, Vanessa announced her pregnancy in an emotional Instagram post, revealing she and her husband were expecting a baby boy.
Sharing photos and videos from her gender reveal party, the 28-year-old told fans: “Was debating keeping this part of my life hidden but I knew people would see pictures eventually with my belly & I wanted you guys to hear it from me.”
“I do want to keep this chapter of my life private but did want to be the first to share the news. I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January ????”
