In an extended segment on this morning’s Good Day LA, new mom Jillian Barberie Reynolds became visibly moved as she described the whirlwind of emotions she felt upon meeting her daughter Ruby Raven, 4-weeks, for the first time. Jillian, who was adopted, cried so hard during the delivery her husband Grant said he thought she was actually having a seizure. Recalled Jillian:

Jillian said that she cannot bear to be apart from Ruby, whom the couple say is a very easy baby.

Parenthood has been equally well-received by Grant, who said the transition from bachelor to married dad has been "a real simple evolution."

Jillian says that she is not feeling sleep-deprived yet, despite the rigors of breastfeeding a newborn. While she nurses she likes to look around the room and see the various gifts Ruby has received from her fans. Although she appears to have a solid breastfeeding relationship with Ruby now, like many new moms, Jillian at first found herself wondering "where’s the manual?"

Ruby is the first child for the couple, who have been married since July 2006.
