After years of dating, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child together in January 2020. The following April, Battle — a Morehouse alum — proposed to Goodwin during a picnic date in Atlanta ahead of the birth of their daughter, Riley Rosa Bell Battle.

"I've been a mommy for a week. Wow. Her soul is sooo beautiful. She was born on a Wednesday as was I. She has a head full of hair & she is sooooo stunning. She loves music, the sound of her daddy's voice, and her mamas touch," Goodwin wrote on Instagram at the time. "My daughter you lack nothing, you were born WHOLE, I will make sure you always feel liberated by liberating myself. I'll always be here."

Goodwin is known for her role on BET's Being Mary Jane, portraying Niecy Patterson, the niece of Gabrielle Union's Mary Jane Paul. She is currently starring in the FOX drama Our Kind of People and will star in the Lifetime thriller Single Black Female — alongside K. Michelle and Amber Riley — which will premiere early 2022.
