Chicago White Sox pitcher Michael Kopech has filed for divorce from Riverdale actress Vanessa Morgan just six months after getting married.

The divorce news comes several days after Morgan announced her pregnancy. The actress made the announcement via Instagram on Friday, sharing video and pics from her gender reveal party. She's expecting a baby boy.

Morgan wrote in her post on Friday, "Was debating keeping this part of my life hidden, but I knew people would see pictures eventually with my belly & I wanted you guys to hear it from me. I do want to keep this chapter of my life private, but did want to be the first to share the news. I am overjoyed to be welcoming my baby boy into the world this January. It’s almost like everything I thought mattered in this life has completely changed. We’re here for such a greater purpose and life is so precious."

Kopech filed for divorce on June 19.
