Congratulations are in order for Erika Christensen and her husband Cole Maness on the safe arrival of their second child – a baby girl!
The actress announced the exciting news on Instagram on Friday while revealing the baby’s birth was so quick her husband stepped in to be her midwife.
‘It happened! It happened this morning,’ she said. ‘And it will go down in family history because babygirl’s own, incredible Dad delivered her all by himself. My fault entirely as I didn’t know she would come so quickly and didn’t call the doc until far too late. He came straight over and arrived about one minute after she joined us in the world. Haha! My Mom too. You should’ve seen their faces when they walked in to hear her little wail. Mom immediately took this picture. So epic.’
The couple estimates the baby arrives at 9:21 am weighing 7lbs 8oz.
The baby’s name is Polly and her mom describes her as ‘chubby-cheeked, rosy and so beautiful’.
Erika announced she was expecting again in May. The new baby joins the couple’s oldest daughter Shane, who was also born at home.
