Bridgit Mendler is now a mom! 

The singer-former Disney actor took to X (formerly Twitter) to announce that she is now a mom to a four-year-old boy she adopted in 2022. 

“The other news I wanted to share is I’m a mama to a sweet 4yo boy,” she wrote, sharing that she first fostered in 2021 before finally adopting near Christmas in 2022. 

“I’m so lucky — being a parent is the biggest gift and most defining experience there is,” she added. 

This revelation comes after the Ready or Not singer shared on the same day that she is a CEO and a co-founder of her startup company Northwood Space. 

“We are designing shared ground infrastructure from first principles to expand access to space. We have a lot of work ahead of us but that’s the fun part,” she wrote.

Her husband, Griffin Cleverly will serve as the chief technology officer, she told CNBC.

Prior to this, Mendler studied at the University of Southern California, MIT, and Harvard, as seen on her LinkedIn profile. 

Mendler is known for her roles in Disney shows including Good Luck Charlie, Lemonade Mouth, and Wizards of Waverly Place. 

She also ventured into singing, some of her hit songs are Ready or Not, Hurricane, and Do You Miss Me At All, among others.
