This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Congratulations are in order for Alexandra Breckenridge!
On Tuesday, it was confirmed that the former The Walking Dead actress gave birth to her first child. How exciting!
According to Miz Breckenridge's rep, the 34-year-old welcomed a son with husband Casey Neil Hooper back on Saturday, September 3 at 2 p.m. The happy couple have named their little one Jack — who came into the world weighing nine pounds and one ounce. Aww!
"When I first held my baby, the world melted away and I knew he was the most important thing I'd ever do."
Tissues, anyone?? Not to mention, Alexandra also opened up about her choice to have natural water birth at a local hospital. The new mom continued:
"I had the benefit of being surrounded by experienced, loving women, while being overseen by medical staff, just in case. Luckily, everything went beautifully and no interventions were needed. I couldn't be happier with the experience. I'm definitely an advocate for water birth if you choose to go natural."
While the birth may've gone according to plan, it seems naming their tiny tot was a bit of a journey. Apparently, Breckenridge and Katy Perry's guitarist settled on a different name before little Jack was even conceived. The TV starlet explained:
"We had another name for him picked out before he was conceived, but while I was jet-lagged in London, maybe three months pregnant, I had a weird feeling his name was Jack. I have no idea where it came from, but I just knew. The same way I knew that he was a boy. Call it mother's intuition?!"
Hey, everything happens for a reason — right? Congrats again you two!
