AceShowbiz - Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner have become parents to a baby boy. Three days after celebrating Mother's Day, the "Married at First Sight" couple announced that Jamie has given birth to their second child together, and she joked that her little boy has already shown sign of being a good listener.
Making use of Instagram to share the happy news, the 33-year-old exclaimed, "He's HERE! And he's clearly a very good listener! We served him his eviction notice and within 24 hours he vacated the premises!" As she thanked fans for prayers and support throughout her pregnancy, she spilled that her newborn was "snuggling on my chest perfectly calm & content as I write this caption to you!"
In her announcement post, Jamie further explained, "I'm sorry I wasn't able to go 'live' longer - I was in so much pain during contractions and this labor happened so fast! I wanted to really focus on my breathing and being one with my son. Within 6 hours he was OUT!" She added, "I HAVE SO MUCH MORE I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU but it's almost 11:30 pm and I'm EXHAUSTED!"
Jamie's husband Doug has also made a lengthy post about the birth of their baby boy, Hayes. "So proud of @jamienotis for how unbelievably brave, amazing, determined, and loving she was today! It was an intense but somewhat magical day of bringing Hayes Douglas Hehner into the world, less than 6 ft from our bed," he gushed.
The 36-year-old went on to note that the resemblance between Hayes and his older sister Henley Grace "is crazy." After assuring fans that his labor-and-delivery nurse wife and their baby are "doing amazing & perfectly healthy," he praised their midwife Dina and her assistant/dula Simone, crediting them for making it a "stress and worry free day."
Hayes was born at Jamie and Doug's New Jersey home at 3:37 P.M. on Wednesday, May 13, as the couple shared to PEOPLE. The little bundle of joy weighed 9 lbs., 4 oz. and measured 21 inches.
Jamie first announced she was pregnant with Hayes back in early September 2019. "We went to the fertility specialist and found out WE ARE PREGNANT!!! I cannot even believe it!" she shared in an Instagram post. "after 18 long, painful months, two losses and negative after negative on the pregnancy tests we are *finally* pregnant again!"
Months earlier, Jamie opened up about suffering a miscarriage after just ten weeks into her pregnancy. "I'm devastated," she expressed her heartbreak in January 2019. "We've had a 'failed miscarriage.' Our baby formed and there was an amniotic sac, but while the amniotic sac continued to grow the baby stopped at some point."
