They were Married at First Sight.
And now they’re in love at first sight…
… with their first child!
A rep for Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner has confirmed to People Magazine that the reality stars welcomed a daughter into their world on Tuesday.
The details are as follows:
- Name: Henley Grace Hehner.
- Born at: 5:24 a.m.
- Weight: Eight pounds, two ounces.
- Height: 20.2 inches.
“Mommy and baby are doing well and Daddy is in pure bliss,” this rep tells the aforementioned publication.
Shortly after this confirmation went viral, the brand new parents shared the following precious photo from their daughter’s Instagram account:
Yup. You read that correctly: Henley Grace Hehner is just a few hours old and already has an Instagram account.
“Wrapped around my daddy’s finger already. #skintoskin #daddysgirl #newborn,” read the caption to this cute image.
Jamie, meanwhile, gave People a shout-out on her own social media account, while also making the following statement as a caption to an exclusive photo from that magazine:
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.. #MyGracieGirl #MyEverything
Jamie and Doug got married within seconds of meeting each other for the first time on the reality series Married at First Sight in 2014.
They are one of the few success stories from that series… heck, from any reality series.
Just over a year ago, they tragically lost a child to a miscarriage after Jamie was four months along.
“Our Baby Hehner was just too beautiful for earth,” Jamie wrote at the time, adding:
“I love him so much – ALWAYS will – and can’t wait to meet him in heaven one day. Please pray for us.”
They shared a heartbreaking photo at the time and were as open as they could be about what happened, with Doug writing last summer:
“There are no words to express the pain and sorrow associated with losing our baby.”
We really cannot imagine.
In April, Otis spoke to People in an exclusive interview about how excited she was to be a mother.
“I’ve always wanted to have that mother-daughter relationship that I kind of missed out on with my mom,” said the reality star, who opened up about her difficult relationship with her mother in her memoir Wifey 101.
“I secretly hoped to be a mommy to a little girl and to have a little mini me.”
We’re so very happy for Jamie and Doug!
We can’t wait to see more baby photos!
