Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s first photos of the beautiful baby
Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan were overjoyed by the recent introduction of their second child collectively, child George Virginia Morgan because she was a supplementary special delivery.
“Please meet George Virginia Morgan,” Burton wrote next to the first photos of their “wonder baby” she posted to her Instagram accounts on Tuesday. “She was created Feb 16th. Her daddy shipped her. We love her quite definitely.”
Burton continued to clarify that she was posting the news headlines about their daughter’s delivery now because her Walking Deceased star spouse is overseas going to “some big conventions,” plus they were both worried he could “spill the coffee beans” while speaking with the press. But Burton got serious as she continued to start about the couple’s “heartbreaking” fertility trip.
As some of you know, @jeffreydeanmorgan is off in Europe getting ready to do some big conventions. And he's self aware enough to know his track record for "spilling the beans" isn't so great (bless his heart!). So before he starts tripping up in an attempt to maintain our privacy, he asked that I go ahead and post something about our little girl's birth. But before I do that, there's something I really want to say to all the women out there who are trying….. It took a long time for Jeffrey and I to have this baby. The first time I got pregnant, it took a year and a half. I surprised him on Christmas with baby Seahawk booties. We cried. We celebrated. We picked out names. And we lost that baby. More losses followed, and as so many couples know, it was heartbreaking. It still is heartbreaking. And every morning of the five years it took us, I'd open my computer at the kitchen table and see the news and I'd grow bitter over the endless parade of celebrities showing off their bumps and babies. I'd weep out of jealousy for how easy it was for them. Didn't they know something could go wrong? Didn't they know that there were other women out there struggling? It pained me to see the corporate sponsored baby showers and magazine covers capitalizing on this human miracle that wasn't happening for us. So when this pregnancy started, we were cautious. I didn't want to celebrate for fear of jinxing it. I didn't want a baby shower. I checked her heartbeat every day, up until the day she was born. And now that she is here, I just stare at her in wonder all day. I see her in her daddy's arms and I don't take any of it for granted. She screams bloody murder and I smile because she is so wildly alive. So now that folks know she's here, I don't want her birth to cause any other woman to weep at her kitchen table. If anything, my wish is that she would restore hope for others. Fertility is a fickle thing. And for the other couples out there who have had dark days, we want to introduce our miracle baby to you and send you our love and support in finding yours. Please meet George Virginia Morgan. She was born February 16th. Her daddy delivered her. We love her very much.
“It took quite a while for Jeffrey and me to have this baby,” she wrote. “The first time I got pregnant, it required one and a half year. I amazed him on Xmas with baby Seahawk booties. We cried. We celebrated. We have chosen titles. And we lost that baby. More deficits followed so that as so many lovers know, it was heartbreaking. It is heartbreaking still. And each morning of the five years it got us, I’d open up my computer at your kitchen desk and start to see the information and I’d develop bitter on the limitless parade of superstars revealing their bumps and infants. I’d weep away with jealousy for how easy it was to them. Didn’t they know something could fail? Didn’t they know that there have been other women out there battling? It pained me to start to see the corporate and business sponsored baby showers and publication cover taking advantage of this human magic that wasn’t occurring for all of us.”
She continues on to describe that these were cautious with this pregnancy because of the past heartbreak. “I didn’t want to celebrate for concern with jinxing it,” she added. “I didn’t want a baby shower celebration. I examined her heartbeat every day, up until your day she was created. And today that she actually is here, I just stare at her in question all day long. I see her in her daddy’s hands and I don’t take some of it for granted. She screams bloody murder and I smile because she actually is so wildly alive.”
Burton concluded with an email telling that she designed to send a note of desire to other women who are fighting fertility issues. “So given that people know she’s here, I don’t want her delivery to cause some other female to weep at her dining room table,” she published. “If anything, my wish is that she’d restore expect others. Fertility is a fickle thing. As well as for the other lovers out there who’ve had dark times, you want to expose our wonder baby for you and send you our love and support to find yours.”
Burton and Morgan are also parents to child Gus, who converts 8 this month.
