I gave birth to a daughter in December with @JasonRitter,” Lynskey tweeted at the time. “She is perfect, and we adore her so much. We appreciate all of your kind words.
The couple hasn’t disclosed the name of their daughter, but Lynskey recently shared some images of Ritter and their child with the caption, “The cuddliest, cutest, most fun, sweetest, kindest, most funniest dad to our little one.” Many thanks. @jason ritter.”

Lynskey brought up about the body shaming she has been receiving online on social media following the release and huge success of Yellowjackets. Most obnoxious are the folks who say, “I worry about her health!” Lynskey said on Twitter. “B— I’m not on my Peleton, you know that! You don’t see me chasing after my kid through the park. Healthy does not always equate to being thin.”
If anyone has any additional unwanted comments about *anyone* else’s body, they are welcome to write them in permanent ink onto their own foreheads and swan dive into the sun, Ritter said in a supportive tweet that he shared along with his wife’s.
