Tonys 2016: Keri Russell Makes First Red Carpet Appearance Since Giving Birth to Child with Matthew Rhys

Keri Russell is back on the red carpet, but something is different – she’s a mom of three!

Russell, 40, attended the 2016 Tony Awards on Sunday night in New York City, her first red carpet since giving birth to her first child with The Americans costar Matthew Rhys.

The star’s ruby gown featured a deep V-neck and buttons down the front. The sleeves included silver appliqués and long ribbon ties at the cuff. She wore her hair pulled back, and long, silver and red drop earrings.

Russell was in the film version of Waitress, which is nominated for best musical at the Tonys. She introduced the show’s performance, saying, “I’m so happy our film is now a romantic, funny and uplifting musical that celebrates friendship and motherhood.”

The costars and couple welcomed their new addition last month, and have not yet announced the baby’s name or gender.

It’s the first child for Rhys, 41. Russell is already mom to daughter Willa, 4, and son River, 8, with ex-husband Shane Deary.

Of motherhood, Russell told Parade in 2013, “You instantly become less selfish. You can’t be the biggest person in the world anymore – they are. It really grounds you.”
