He’s HERE!👶🏼💙🌈 And he’s clearly a very good listener!💯 We served him his eviction notice and within 24 hours he vacated the premises!😉 I want to thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for all the prayers, positive vibes, & sticky baby dust you sent me throughout my pregnancy with @babyboyhehner🙏🏻 I truly have the best FRANS!🥰 All of your love and support hasn’t gone unnoticed. And all that positive energy sprinkled out into the universe WORKED!✨ He’s snuggling on my chest perfectly calm & content as I write this caption to you!👶🏼🌈 I’m sorry I wasn’t able to go “live” longer – I was in so much pain during contractions and this labor happened so fast! I wanted to really focus on my breathing and being one with my son.☺️ Within 6 hours he was OUT!⚡️ Also, I just quickly want to thank @people for being just as excited as we are about our precious son’s arrival!🥰 They already shared pics and all his “stats!”☺️ I put the link in bio if you wanna read!🤗 I HAVE SO MUCH MORE I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU but it’s almost 11:30 pm and I’m EXHAUSTED! Thank you soooo much again! We love you!💙
Jamie announced the arrival of her son on Instagram and introduced the world to Hayes Douglas Hehner. Jamie, who has been very open throughout her pregnancy journey, shared that she wanted to go live during her home birth, which she was able to do after she tested negative for the coronavirus. However, Hayes’s arrival happened so quickly that things didn’t go quite as planned with her live birth. “I’m sorry I wasn’t able to go “live” longer – I was in so much pain during contractions and this labor happened so fast! I wanted to really focus on my breathing and being one with my son. Within 6 hours he was OUT!”
Jamie hasn’t only been open about her pregnancy, but she’s been very candid about her struggles to conceive as well. She’s suffered quite a few miscarriages sadly. She welcomed her first child into the world in 2017, a girl named Henley Grace (though her parents call her Gracie).
The couple tried for 18 months and suffered two miscarriages before becoming pregnant with Hayes. We’re thrilled everything went well with this pregnancy and Jamie and Doug were able to welcome a son! Congratulations to this lovely family!

Crying like a baby right now.😢It really dawned on me that she will no longer be the center of our universe.😔 I never thought I’d “feel bad” for her bc I know I *love* having siblings…but for some reason I just can’t stop sobbing thinking about all the ways this new baby is going to affect her. And as much as we are trying to prepare her I don’t feel like she’s prepared – or maybe it’s that I don’t feel like *I’m* prepared. Tonight Doug and I were talking about how in a way we are thankful for this quarantine bc it’s forced us to slow down. We will never get this time back where it is just the 3 of us. And goodness, I am soaking up every second.🙏🏻💗 …BTW! We’ve been quarantined for a *full* two weeks👏🏻 after having to fly home from Florida and we have ZERO symptoms of covid-19!🙏🏻💗🙏🏻💗 I only went out of the house once since we’ve been back and that was today. I saw the midwife to check up on this little guy in my belly and talk about a potential home birth…as sad as I am for Gracie to have to share us, I am just as *HAPPY* for her to get to have a baby brother to love on and grow up with!🥰 He’s head down and super low if ya know what I mean. The pressure down there is relentless!😱 I feel like he’s going to pop right outta me!😂🤰🏼 Seems like he’s ready to meet his big sis & mommy and daddy!🥰
