Congratulations, Angie Layton!
The former Survivor star gave birth over the weekend to an adorable baby boy — after 41 weeks of pregnancy! Angie and her boyfriend Rich Appel didn’t waste any time posting photos of their newborn son on social media.
Little Ledger James Appel was born on Friday, Feb. 3, 2017, Angie announced on Instagram. He weighed 8 pounds, 8 ounces, and measured at 21.5 inches long at birth. The baby boy made his social media debut in an adorable photo where he was all cuddled up on his mama’s chest.
“Just like that my whole world changed. I love you so much Ledger James,” the new mom wrote in the caption on Instagram.
Angie’s boyfriend Rich is already a doting daddy. He posted a photo of himself holding his newborn son with the sweet caption, “Never known a love like this.”
Mommy and baby were released from the hospital on Sunday, Feb. 5 and Angie said she couldn’t wait to get her baby home. Just one day before his arrival, she posted video to her official YouTube page where she gave fans a tour of her son’s nursery — which included a gray and white color scheme and featured oversized stuffed animals.
The former Miss Utah documented her pregnancy with fans on social media. She revealed her baby's sex on Instagram last September with the hashtag “#FutureMommy,” and she’s been excitedly sharing updates by posing with her baby bump next to a chalkboard sign throughout her third trimester. Her last update before giving birth was at 41 weeks, when she was one week overdue.
“I've never been so anxious in my life.. but the best things in life are worth waiting for right?” she wrote in the caption, just three days before she gave birth to little Ledger.
