Congratulations to GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Tequan Richmond (ex-TJ), who is going to be a father! The actor, who currently stars in the BET series BOOMERANG, shared an Instagram photo with his significant other, co-star Tetona Jackson, where they are embracing with her baby bump between them. He also revealed that they’re having a girl and her name will be Harlie Giselle Richmond.
Jackson, who plays Simone opposite Richmond’s Bryson in BOOMERANG, shared a photo of her own from that same family photo shoot but this time she’s facing away from her beau and cradling her bump. Unfortunately, she also gave no further information other than the baby’s name, though she looks pretty far along so we should be seeing some beautiful baby pics very soon!
Richmond first hit it big as one of the stars of the hit UPN/CW sitcom EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS and appeared on various other primetime series like WEEDS, PRIVATE PRACTICE, STRONG MEDICINE, and THE SHIELD. In 2012, he took over the role of TJ Ashford on GH from Krys Meyer and played the role on both a contract and recurring basis until 2018. That’s when he landed the lead role on BOOMERANG, the BET television sequel to the hit film starring Eddie Murphy. The soap then recast TJ again, with Tajh Bellow, who continues to play the character today.
Please join us in wishing both Richmond and Jackson all the best as we await those first pics of little Harlie!
