Dascha Polanco, actress of Orange Is the New Black, is taking on a new role as she prepares to become a grandmother.
The star, 40, shared her joy at the impending addition to her family in an Instagram image in which she was seen holding her daughter’s baby belly.
‘I just got a promotion,’ she wrote, as she stood alongside her daughter, Dasany Gonzalez.
Dascha was immediately inundated with messages of congratulations over becoming a ‘Glamma’, with several comments expressing disbelief that her own grown-up daughter is having a child.
‘Congratulations !!!! Oh my God !!! Glam-ma loading ❤️❤️❤️ God bless ! 🙏🏽,’ one comment read.
‘Finest abuela,’ another said, while someone else wrote: ‘Congratulations mama it’s the best promotion ever!! Welcome to the grammy club!!’

Some people were also surprised to learn that Dascha is Dasany’s mother, despite the fact that the two appear to be sisters.
Many Orange Is the New Black fans will recall that Dasany played the younger version of her mother’s character Daya Diaz in a flashback sequence in season five owing to their remarkable likeness.
Dascha opened out about her motherhood journey in June of last year, sharing her delight in her daughter graduating from college.
‘As a Mother I had no idea what I was doing or if I was setting the “right example”. I can’t take credit for the work you have done and will continue to do on your own,’ she wrote on Instagram.
‘My Independent Queen, My first born only 2lbs barely making it … And look at you know making it happen ! Proud of your resilience, determination, your heart and looking fly always. I Love You @princess.sany_.’
Dascha revealed in an interview in 2020 that she had her daughter when she was 17 years old.
‘One night, my best friend’s father said, “What you’re doing is horrible,” and he embarrassed me in front of everyone. I’ll never forget that,’ she recalled at the time.
‘But I was making the best decision that I could. I knew that having a baby was going to make my life harder, but I was also determined to turn every obstacle into a blessing.’
Dasany announced her pregnancy last month, sharing pictures that she took with her partner in a photoshoot while writing in her Instagram caption: ‘The butterflies in my belly turned into two little feet 💙✨.. I can’t wait to meet you King!’
