Ruthie Ann Miles is pregnant!

The 36-year-old Broadway actress took to Instagram on Saturday (March 21) to announce that she and husband Jonathan Blumenstein are expecting.

“We are expecting another child this spring!” Ruthie Ann wrote. “Thank you especially to the many of you who supported us in the aftermath of the crash, continually lifted us up in prayer, and doused us with Love, encouraged us, let us be & grieve these two years…and now rejoice with us in this new life.”

Back in March 2018, a pregnant Ruthie Ann and her 4-year-old daughter Abigail, as well as her friend and her friend’s one year old son Joshua, were leaving a church event when they were mowed down by a car. The two children tragically died.

Two months later, Ruthie Ann shared even more devastating news – she had lost her unborn child just weeks before her due date. Ruthie Ann and Jonathan were planning on naming their daughter Sophia.

“We know Abigail Joy and Sophia would have loved being big sisters & are watching their family grow. Love, Jonathan and RuthieAnn,” Ruthie Ann ended her post.

We’re so happy for Ruthie Ann and Jonathan!

Get to Know ‘Waitress’ on Tour Actress Desi Oakley with These 10 Fun Facts (Exclusive)

10 Fun Facts | Broadway | Celebrities News | Desi Oakley | Exclusive Comments Off on Get to Know ‘Waitress’ on Tour Actress Desi Oakley with These 10 Fun Facts (Exclusive)


The hit Broadway musical Waitress will be arriving in Hollywood this week for the latest stop on its national tour and we caught up with the show’s star Desi Oakley to learn more about her!

The actress has previously been seen on Broadway in Wicked, Annie, and Les Miserables. Now she’s playing the role of Jenna, which has been performed by such stars as Jessie Mueller, Sara Bareilles, and Katharine McPhee.

Here are 10 Fun Facts from Desi:

  • 1. I was born in Kansas and I love visiting my family (niece and nephew!) who still live there.
  • 2. I’ve never broken a bone.
  • 3. I am a proud graduate of the University of Michigan. #goblue
  • 4. I have Lasik surgery. (I had glasses since I was eight so it’s a miracle to see better than 20/20.)
  • 5. I primarily only drink French red wine. (Their fermentation process leaves no residual sugar!) And I’m quite the connoisseur, if I do say so myself.

Click inside to read the rest of the fun facts…

  • 6. I studied classical piano for over fourteen years, and it’s my main way to compose music. (Find my album on Spotify and iTunes!)
  • 7. I slipped on some flour onstage during a scene and completely bit it. The audience laughed and the only thing that was really hurt was my pride.
  • 8. I absolutely love yoga. I live for an arm balance and an inversion.
  • 9. I have a crazy addiction to dips. Ranches, cremas, sauces, mayos, and the list goes on. I’ve never met an aioli I didn’t like.
  • 10. My main focus in life is to connect with other humans. Being on the stage is my art, and I’m so lucky to do it for a living. But the connection it brings me to people is the most rewarding part of it all.

Go see Waitress at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre from August 2-26!
