It’s a girl!
Born over three weeks early, daughter Hannah Mali Rose Lanfer weighed 6 lbs., 14 oz., and measured 21 inches.
“We are thrilled to welcome baby Hannah Mali Rose to our family,” the proud parents tell PEOPLE.
Despite keeping the sex a delivery surprise, the couple add, 2½-year-old son Micah Emmanuel “somehow knew she’d be a girl from the moment we told him we were pregnant. He is over the moon to be a big brother to sweet Hannah.”
“I wanted to try a natural birth, but I ended up having pregnancy toxemia. I was in horrific upper abdominal pain the whole night before he was born, and when I went to the hospital, they said, ‘We need to induce,’ ” she said in September.
“I cried about it. And then, dude, if I could get induced and get drugs and have every baby that way … it was amazing! I got the epidural and, within an hour, they gave me the Pitocin. He was out in six hours.”
