It’s a girl!
Survivor contestants John and Candice Cody welcomed a daughter on Saturday, Sept. 12, they tell PEOPLE exclusively.
Beatrix Leigh Cody was born at 10:25 p.m. at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington D.C. She weighed in at 7 lbs., 4 oz and was 19.5 inches long.
“She’s absolutely perfect,” John, 32, tells PEOPLE. “Candice and Bixie did wonderfully in the hospital and are home safe and sound.”
Adds Candice, 32: “Nothing prepares you for the joy of seeing the birth of your baby. We’ve never been more in love with each other as we begin this exciting journey as a little family!”
Both John and Candice now work as physicians — he as an orthopaedic surgeon and she as an anesthesiologist — in the Washington, D.C., area.
