The 29-year-old “Riverdale” star celebrated her son’s first birthday with a candid post shared on Instagram.

“One year of YOU. Loving YOU. Growing with YOU,” Morgan captioned the beautiful images of the boy and his cake. “Happy 1st birthday my Lil Buddha. Your Birthday was also my rebirth. My greatest purpose. Crazy how fast this year flew by. Grateful every day I get to call myself your Mommy. I love you.”

Her “Riverdale” co-stars also joined in to celebrate River’s first birthday, with Marisol Nichols writing, “Such a cutie pie!!!”

“Happy Birthday to that little blessing and congrats on making it through the first year V,” Skeet Ulrich commented.

Vanessa Morgan has been open about the support she’s received from her “Riverdale” co-stars after she became a mother, especially from Kelly Ripa and her husband Mark Consuelos.

“I talked to Kelly after I gave birth. Mark, they were just excited for me, and gave me beautiful, beautiful baby clothes for River,” she said, noting that the rest of the cast also met River on set.

“It took them a while to comprehend this is your baby. It’s weird,” Morgan added. “But it’s just been so special being able to share motherhood with them and they’ve been so supportive. River has this whole family, uncles, and aunts of people on my show, and it’s so nice. Everybody loves him. He has his own trailer at work.”
