'Married At First Sight' alum Jamie Otis delivers baby boy after 6-hour labor, Doug Hehner cries tears of joy
An over-the-moon Jamie went live on Instagram to share the celebratory news with her fans but wasn't able to stick around much longer because of the contractions
'Married At First Sight' alums Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner welcomed baby no.2, Hayes Douglas, on Wednesday, May 13. The couple opted for a home birth after doing a ton of research. Hayes will join elder Sister, Henley "Gracie" Grace, who will be all of three years this August.
An over-the-moon Jamie went live on Instagram to share the celebratory news with her fans but wasn't able to stick around much longer because of the contractions.
"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," Jamie wrote in her post.
Responding to her upload, Doug appreciated the pain Jamie went through to bring baby Hayes into the world and wrote he couldn't imagine pushing 9lbs 4oz of anything through his body and quipped: "This now means that I cannot complain about any ailment ever again."
The couple, who will be starring in Lifetime's 'Married At First Sight: Couples' Cam' that airs on May 20, shared with People how Hayes looks exactly like his sister.
For Jamie and Doug, Hayes is like a prayer answered because Doug had always hoped for a baby boy and he was shattered when their first baby passed away at 17 weeks. He had cried when he learned of their first one's gender and had even named him Jonathan Edward.
Meanwhile, fans cannot stop congratulating the 'MAFS' stars on social media.
"CONGRATS CONGRATS CONGRATS MAMA + DAD. You’re such a warrior, can’t wait to hear all about the birth," a fan wrote, while another posted an emotional note: "I was in tears watching your live! You did it mama. You are absoluty amazing! He is so beyond precious, and I can't wait to continue watching your journey."
"Congrats mama I can already tell he looks so much like Henley!! Amazing job delivering him at home!!," a user commented. "Congratulations! I’ve been stalking IG all day waiting for an announcement. So happy for your sweet family," another expressed.
