Actress Kim Fields Has A Boy

Kim Fields, who played Tootie Ramsey on "The Facts of Life," has given birth to a son.

Sebastian Alexander Morgan, who will be called Sam, was born Friday at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. The baby weighed 6 pounds, 4 ounces, said the actress' publicist, Linda J. Stewart, said in a statement Monday.

He is the first child for Fields, 37, and her fiancé, Christopher Morgan, 30, a Broadway actor. Morgan was in the delivery room when the baby was born.

The couple decided to have a child last summer, Fields said in a statement.

"We were on the subway one day and Chris said, `I'm ready to start our family,"' she said. "It was beautiful and I started to weep."
