Congratulations are in order for Married at First Sight stars Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner, who welcomed a baby girl early Tuesday morning. The happy couple named their new addition Henley Grace Hehner, and her rep told People that everyone is “doing well and in pure bliss.” Henley weighed in at 8 pounds, 2 ounces, and 20 inches long.
The couple, who tied the knot back in 2014, announced in February they were expecting again — after suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage with their son, Jonathan Edward. This also makes Henley a “rainbow baby,” which is a phrase used to describe children born after their parents experience a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death, or infant loss.

Loading … 96% finished. 🔜 Baby Henley Grace is coming any day now. 👶🏼🎀 She's due on 8/24/17 – in 1 week‼️Her daddy thinks she's coming 8/20/17.

“Our baby Hehner was just too beautiful for Earth. I love him so much — always will — and can’t wait to meet him in heaven one day. Please pray for us,” the reality stars said at the time.
Jamie sparked rumors that she was going into labor a few weeks back when she announced that she was 2 centimeters dilated. “I cannot believe our daughter will be in our arms in a matter of days/weeks!” she wrote on Instagram. “She’s so big and takes up every crevice of my insides so I literally cannot breathe — lol, but seriously, I can’t tell you how amazing it feels to know that if she decided to come tomorrow she’d be fully developed and healthy!”
It’s clear these two could not wait to be parents, as Jamie previously told People that she always wanted a daughter. “I’ve always wanted to have that mother-daughter relationship that I kind of missed out on with my mom. I secretly hoped to be a mommy to a little girl and to have a little mini me.”
Doug chimed in with, “Every one of my guy friends says there is this unexplained special bond that happens with a daughter. They don’t know what it is, but it’s an amazing feeling, and I cannot wait.”
Congratulations to the growing family!
