“Back [with] bae,” Madelaine, 26, captioned an Instagram post of the two posing together on Tuesday, September 15.
Vanessa, 28, also announced her return to set with a selfie uploaded to Instagram.
“Toni T,” the pregnant actress wrote. “First Day Back. [Six] months later [and six] months [pregnant].”
As fans know, Vanessa announced that she was expecting her first child on July 24.
“Was debating keeping this part of my life hidden, but I knew people would see pictures eventually with my belly [and] I wanted you guys to hear it from me,” she captioned a series of photos and videos from her gender reveal party. “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.”
According to Chicago Tribune, online court records show that the White Sox pitcher filed on June 19, in Morris County, Texas. The newspaper reported that the case was sealed on July 27, and that no hearing date was scheduled.
Vanessa’s return to Riverdale also comes after she called out the show’s writers in a series of tweets from May 31.
“I’m not being [quiet] anymore,” she wrote. “Tired of how Black people are portrayed in media. Tired of us being portrayed as thugs, dangerous or angry, scary people. Tired of us also being used as side kick non-dimensional characters to our white leads. Or only in the ads for diversity but not actually in the show.”
She added, “I’m the only Black series regular but also paid the least. I could go on for days.”
Following Vanessa’s social media posts, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa issued an apology.
“We hear Vanessa. We love Vanessa. She’s right. We’re sorry and we make the same promise to you that we did to her. We will do better to honor her and the character she plays. As well as all of our actors and characters of color,” he wrote on Instagram on June 4. “Change is happening and will continue to happen. Riverdale will get bigger, not smaller. Riverdale will be part of the movement, not outside it. All of the Riverdale writers made a donation to @BLMLA, but we know where they work must happen for us. In the writers’ room.”
