Molly Yeh and her husband of four years, farmer Nick Hagen, welcomed their first child on Saturday, March 30 — the baby’s actual due date.
The 30-year-old star of the Food Network series Girl Meets Farm first revealed that she was expecting baby No. 1 last November, as The Inquisitr previously reported. At the time, Yeh said that she couldn’t wait to be a mother so she could “make cute little lunches” and “go to Disney World,” adding that she just really loves “kid stuff.”
The cookbook author shared her happy news on Instagram, posting an adorable snapshot of her beautiful newborn daughter all swaddled up in Tula’s Dreamy Skies blanket. The $49 blanket features pastel-colored rainbows on a blue background.
Bernadette Rosemary Yeh Hagen, who will affectionately be called Bernie, is sleeping peacefully in the photograph. Her tiny head is topped with a bow-adorned pink cap with blue stripes.
In the caption, the new mother said that her daughter “arrived promptly and calmly” at 1:30 a.m., weighing 7 pounds, 6 ounces. Yeh and Hagen are both “wildly in love” with her.
She explained that the name Bernadette is in honor of her husband’s great-great-grandfather, Bernt, who came from Norway and started the Hagen farm, and her Hungarian great-grandfather, Bernard. As for her middle name, Rosemary was her grandmother’s name.
“She has a full head of hair and loves to stick her tongue out just like this,” Yeh wrote, followed by the face with stuck-out tongue emoji.
