Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner Welcome Baby Girl Henley Grace — All the Details!
A major congratulations is in order for Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner — the Married at First Sight stars are officially parents!
Two-and-a-half years after the couple tied the knot on the Lifetime (then FYI network) reality show, they welcomed their first child, a baby girl, on August 22.
And lucky for you, we have all the deets!
“Mommy and baby are doing well and Daddy is in pure bliss,” her rep reveals.
The healthy little gal weighed in at 8 lbs., 2 oz., and measured 20.2 inches long.
"I've never been more in love. @henleygracehehner, you're mommy's everything.???? Thanks, @people for being just as excited as we are to welcome our sweet baby girl," the new mama gushes alongside the first shot of her daughter (well, her hand).
Way back in February — before they even found out the sex — the New Jersey-based pair teased some of the names they were considering via a Facebook Live about their top choices.
At the time, Henley and Kayleigh were the leading contenders for a girl, and in early August they revealed they'd decided on Henley Grace for their firstborn. So precious!
With a great name like that, such loving parents, and so many people excited to meet her — seriously, check out the awesome surprise baby shower Doug’s parents threw in June — this gal is a lucky one.
Not to mention, the gorgeous maternity shoot the pair did in the final month of pregnancy in anticipation of the big day!
The Hehners are just as lucky, though...
The new mom and dad have been waiting for this moment so long, after enduring a difficult July 2016 when Jamie miscarried their baby boy at 17 weeks.
"Today is the day my sweet son, Johnathan Edward, was due. I have spent the last few months trying to find the most perfect way to honor my angel baby. Anyone who has suffered from a miscarriage, infant loss or any loss for that matter knows exactly how I feel...." ...continue reading by clicking link in my bio. (I remember holding that onesie thinking how cute it'd be to have Johnny in it one day announcing he's finally here.) #AlwaysInMyHeart #miscarriage #pregnancyloss #infantloss #johnathanedward
They named their baby Johnathan, and we’re sure they will keep his memory alive, telling Baby Henley all about the big brother she never got to meet.
"Just like we promised our baby boy, we haven’t forgotten him. Not for one second," Jamie wrote on her blog about the shoot.
"We love him immensely and made sure to have a piece of him present with us during our maternity shoot."
Our #maternityshoot was a roller-coaster of emotions. We took these pictures a week after our angel baby's first heavenly birthday. There were signs all around that he was there with us... I blogged & shared more about our special maternity shoot. Link in bio. [pics captured by @limelight_photography_nj] #love #myangel
She also added, "I truly believe our rainbow baby was a gift sent down from heaven from her big brother, Johnny."
Congrats to the growing family — can’t wait for more pics of "Gracie girl"!
