It's a girl!
On Friday (October 16), Ashley Tisdale took to Instagram to reveal the sex of her baby. In a series of sweet photos featuring Tisdale and her husband Christopher French slicing open a cake with colored sprinkles inside, the High School Musical star shared she's expecting a baby girl.
"This year has obviously been hard. For so many. Ups and downs, and an emotional roller coaster," Tisdale wrote in her caption. "I think this day was by far my favorite day EVER! I cried I was so happy. P.S. for all you people going above and beyond for gender reveal parties. A cake with the color inside is JUST as rewarding as fireworks but SAFER!"
Tisdale first teased her gender reveal in early October. She shared one of the cake photos to her Instagram without showing the pink-colored sprinkles inside. "I’ve been wondering if we should share the gender with all of you. As you know I like to keep as much as I can close to my heart but I’m so excited maybe I should," the 35-year-old actress captioned the post. She asked her followers to comment "yes or no" on the post to help her decide.
Since announcing her pregnancy earlier this year, Tisdale has opened up about trying to find a balance between what to share publicly and what to keep private. "[After] I got engaged EVERYONE (and I mean everyone!) asked when I was getting married," Tisdale wrote on her Frenshe blog. "Then, once I was married, everyone was asking when I was having kids. To be honest, it just felt invasive. I wasn't ready for that step yet and I wanted to be selfish and have Chris all to myself for a while."
In the end, Tisdale decided to share her happy news with the world—a mini Sharpay Evans is on the way!
