Rachel Bloom, star of the critically acclaimed CW series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” had her first child recently, in what she described as a harrowing scene amid the coronavirus outbreak.
“Having a baby in the NICU during a pandemic while a dear friend was in the hospital 3,000 miles away made this by far the most emotionally intense week of mine and [husband Dan] Gregor’s lives,” Bloom wrote in an Instagram post.
She shared the picture just hours before it was announced that her friend who worked with her on “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” Fountains of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger, died from COVID-19.
Bloom said she, her husband and the baby were home safe and sound, but the experience was quite scary.
“As the lovely doctors and nurses helped my daughter get some fluid out of her lungs, we watched the maternity ward around us change hourly to prepare for the upcoming COVID storm,” Bloom wrote. “I am just so grateful to all of our medical workers.”

Bloom and Schlesinger, along with songwriter Jack Dolgen, won an Emmy together in 2019 for a song on the “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” soundtrack. The trio worked on soundtracks for all four seasons of the show together.
