McGee — who played Angela Moore, the love interest of Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong) in Boy Meets World from 1997 to 2000 — is already mom to Ramia, 31, Langston, 29 and Ezra, 25, according to ET.

While she shares two of her children with ex-husband Courtland Davis, she also shares one child with a former partner.

The star has been married toactor/producer/director Marcello Thedford for 16 years after they met 28 years ago in Rome while shooting Sylvester Stallone's 1996 film, Daylight.

McGee told ET that she had been wan -

ting a baby with Thedford “for quite a while” and after they were unsuccessful trying to conceive with no intervention, they went to Belize — where Thedford has a "cultural background" — and worked with Garifuna people to discover natural remedies like taking medicinal herbs.

The actress credits natural remedies, herbs and a low-stress environment with enabling her to become pregnant at 54.

McGee also told Good Morning America that she began trying natural remedies such as elixirs a year ago as she and Thedford tried to conceive.

Speaking on whether she’ll give her new baby a sibling, McGee told ET, “If the ‘Most High’ allows me to have a sibling with them this baby, yes, I would do that, I would."

She added of anyone criticizing her or others for expanding their family, "It's an individual decision, but be realistic about it. Be realistic about your lifespan — make provisions. And understand that when you do have a baby at this age, what you should have for them is a lot of wisdom — and that's the beauty of the situation."

"At the tender age of 54 I have found myself pregnant," she wrote in her Instagram post on Monday. "Please bless us with your prayers for a safe delivery. Thank you."

McGee added in her caption that she was going to "sign off social media for a bit."

"Thanks for your prayers and well wishes in advance," she concluded.
