It’s been a stellar last seven days for former The Young and the Restless star Jessica Collins (Ex-Avery), the talented actress and chef! First as revealed today, Collins welcomed into the world her new bundle of joy, a daughter named Jemma!
Collins shared her excitement as a proud mother on her Who Say account with a picture of her new baby adding: “Over the moon to finally share with you my greatest role: #Mommy @michaelcooney1 and I proudly present Jemma Kate Collins Cooney Born 1/23/16 #HappiestDayOfMyLife”.
In addition on Wednesday, Jessica received happy news from Daytime Emmy land, where she learned she was Pre-Nominated for her work in the Supporting Actress category for her work on Y&R.
Many have considered Collins work in her final storyline before her exit to be some of her finest work. She now competes against 9 other actresses for the final spots in the blue ribbon round of judging.
Share your well-wishes and congratulations for Collins and dad writer/ director Michael Cooney on the birth of their daughter in the comment section below!
