The image was of a hospital bassinet with a baby blanket and a tag that read: Jenkins. “I asked God for a life of love and happiness,” she wrote in her post. “He sent me my family. Baby Jenkins is here.” The TV host did not reveal any further details about her newborn, including their name or gender.
