‘Orange Is the New Black’ star Dascha Polanco is going to be a grandma at 40

Dascha Polanco is expecting her first grandchild!

The “Orange Is the New Black” star told her Instagram followers that she “just got a promotion,” as her daughter, Dasany Kristal Gonzalez, is pregnant.

Polanco, 40, posted a photo on Sept. 12 of herself cradling Gonzalez’s bump at the 21-year-old’s baby shower.

The mom-to-be wore a bedazzled blue gown in the social media upload, while the grandma-to-be matched in a halter dress and flower earrings.

Polanco disabled comments on the celebratory post.

Gonzalez announced her pregnancy earlier this month, revealing that she has a son on the way.

Polanco conceived Gonzalez when she was 17, which she told Parents Latina in 2020 made her feel like “the shame of [her] family.”

The “In the Heights” star admitted, “It made me feel self-conscious and affected my confidence.”

Polanco went on to welcome her second child, a son named Aryam, at age 25. She shares him with an ex she “respects” and co-parents with without any “drama.”
