If there’s one thing we know about Felicia Day, it’s that she’s a badass. She’s also pregnant. How do we know? She casually dropped a tweet 21 hours ago, complete with a very pregnant selfie, saying the baby is coming “in about three weeks.”
Oh, and it’s a girl.
Felicia Day is having a baby girl.
Commence freakout session!
She’s coming in about three weeks so I guess I should announce this and stuff. pic.twitter.com/OCZw2CoHvr

While she has not posted anything else about the latest additional Day family member, she did receive a large number of congratulatory responses, including an offer for an advanced copy of Feminist Baby by Loryn Brantz! The book includes comics about Feminist Baby, a tiny bundle of awesome! The Amazon synopsis reads:
“Feminist Baby likes pink and blue.
Sometimes she’ll throw up on you!
Feminist Baby chooses what to wear
and if you don’t like it she doesn’t care!
Meet the irrepressible Feminist Baby in this refreshing, clever board book about a girl who’s not afraid to do her own thing, and wants to make as much noise as possible along the way!”
If that description sounds familiar, it’s because it totally describes Felicia!
As we previously reported, Felicia Day made waves in the gamer community when she responded to GamerGate, “an online movement that targets gaming journalism, including female gamers who talk about and play these games.” Felicia took to Twitter and summed up every female gamer emotion in one brilliant post:

The tweet linked back to her blog, Felicia’s Melange, and her “The Only Thing I Have To Say About Gamer Gate” post. In the online essay, she describes how she and other female gamers feel bullied, harassed, and otherwise unwelcome in the gaming sphere and online community at large.
She went on to describe how she had let “a handful of anonymous people censor me. They have forced me, out of fear, into seeing myself a potential victim. And that makes me loathe not THEM, but MYSELF. So I write this to urge any person, male or female, who now has the impulse to do what I did, to walk away from something they loved before, to NOT. Don’t let other people drive you away from gaming.”
This may have been her only public stance on GamerGate, but Felicia has been a strong ally to gamers and the oddball community for a long time. Her daughter will be one of the luckiest children in the world to have this woman as a mom.
Now if only we could get them to guest star on Doctor Who!
