“The Vampire Diaries” alum Claire Holt, 32, is a mom again!
Holt and husband Andrew Joblon welcomed a baby girl. On Sunday, she posted a pic of herself kissing their bundle of joy, writing, “She’s here. Our sweet girl, Elle. After 27.5 hours of labor, she flew into the world and expanded our hearts. We are so grateful for our healthy baby and cannot wait for her to meet her big brother.”
Andrew also shared his own Instagram post, writing, “Baby Elle has finally made her appearance after 27.5 hours of labor. @claireholt again proved to me she is my hero and a true warrior. I love you with all my heart. Thank you so much for birthing this sweet little girl in a challenging year.”
Joblon ended his posted by showing love to women everywhere. He wrote, “All the women out there, no debate from me, you guys are the superior gender and it’s not even close!! 9.12.2020 – my heart is full.”
Last month, Claire opened up about her pregnancy fears. She wrote on Instagram, “35 WEEKS. I’m excited to meet this little girl but I’m SO anxious about losing it again. The recovery, sleep deprivation, feedings, 2 kids 17 months apart, a pandemic… It’s a lot.”
“I know how lucky I am and I know each stage is temporary, but I’m still feeling stressed about how I’ll cope mentally,” Holt admitted. “I think it’s important to share that I have always had help. I never want to pretend that I do it on my own (I am completely in awe of women who do). That being said, I still felt overwhelmed, embarrassed/guilty that I was struggling, and not at all like myself after I gave birth.”
Holt announced she was pregnant in April. At the time, she shared, “Grateful for this little ray sunshine in an uncertain time.”
Holt and Joblon are also the parents of son James Holt, 18 months.
