Tony-winning creator of Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda is the picture of excitement as he responded to a follower on Twitter who asked, discreetly, if his wife was pregnant. Miranda was seen stepping out on the red carpet at this year’s London Evening Standard Theatre Awards, where his wife Vanessa Nadal was sporting what appeared to be the tiniest hint of a baby bump under her floral gown.
One eagle-eyed Twitter follower asked, “is v…?” To which the Tony-award winner responded, “Oh hell yeah.”
The couple, who are parents to 3-year old son Sebastian, wed in 2010 and welcomed Sebastian in 2014.
Miranda is in London for the London transfer of his smash hit Hamilton. The show is the story of America’s founding father Alexander Hamilton who served as Washington’s right hand during the Revolutionary War. The musical score is a mix of Broadway, hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, and R&B, with music and lyrics penned by Miranda and direction by Thomas Kail. Hamilton has won 11 Tony awards, including Best Musical and the 2016 Pulitzer for Drama, among other accolades.
A doting father to Sebastian, Miranda has brought his son to see the show, which he documented, so he can share his son’s review of the musical on Twitter. In that post, Miranda said that the scary parts were his son’s favorite, along with the “kissing, fighting, and singing.” Miranda added that they will see Act 2 when Sebastian is a little older.
During a visit to Puerto Rico, before Hurricane Maria, Miranda expressed his desire to bring the Broadway show to the island. After the devastation brought by the hurricane, Miranda and his team are planning to expedite the announcement of show dates to the island as a show of support for Puerto Rico.
