Congratulations to Nancy O’Dell and Keith Zubchevich on the safe arrival of their baby girl, Ashby Grace.
The girl was 7 lbs., 9 oz. and born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
“We are beyond elated and look forward to appreciating today and every beautiful day to come with our new daughter,” O’Dell says in a statement. “It is even more special given she is named after her great-grandfather and was born on my father’s birthday. She made for quite a birthday present to her new grandfather.”
“Also,” O’Dell adds, “I love epidurals.”
O’Dell, 41, and Zubchevich, 38, wed in 2005 after meeting on a security line at Burbank’s Bob Hope airport in 2004.
In December, they announced they were expecting. This is the first child for O’Dell; Zubchevich has two sons from a previous marriage: Tyler, 11, and Carson, 8.
Ashby is named after O’Dell’s late grandfather; her middle name comes from the church where O’Dell’s parents were married, Grace United Methodist Church in Union, SC. Grace is also a name in Zubchevich’s family.
I hope that he was able to have her foot cast removed before she went into labour. Nancy has been confined to her home for the last couple of weeks after injuring her right foot.
We wish her well. She is going to be a great mom.
