Blake is here!!!

A huge hello to all you wonderful ladies here at Nameberry!!!

This is [name]James[/name], [name]Kristen[/name]”s husband. I am so completely over the moon and proud to tell everyone here that [name]Kris[/name] went into early labor bright and early this morning around 2 and our perfect baby girl made her arrival at 6:56. As you all know, her name is [name]Blake[/name] [name]Antonia[/name] [name]Bellamy[/name], for my little brother [name]Blake[/name], who was the greatest friend and most incredible brother I could have ever asked for. Again, as I”m sure all (or most) of you know, [name]Blake[/name] died in a car accident when he was 7. It was [name]Kristen[/name]”s idea to honor him with our little girl”s name. His birthday actually would have been tomorrow, which is all the more reason for me to think that he is watching over his new little niece.

Our little princess is a little premature (2 weeks early) but is in absolutely perfect health, as is mommy. She is, if I do say so myself, the most gorgeous and beautiful and amazing and perfect little baby I”ve ever seen. She reminds me so much of my beautiful [name]Kris[/name], and of my baby brother as well.

I am just completely at a loss for words right now” I have never been so overwhelmingly ecstatic, proud, and overcome with emotion in my life. I feel that, with [name]Blake[/name] here, I have a part of my brother back. I must be rambling”

I will try and get back to you all as soon as possible” I know [name]Kris[/name] is just dying to. Thank you so much everyone, for everything you’ve done for our family. We can never repay you.

Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! I’ve been thinking about you two, and can’t believe the news! Woo-hoo! CONGRATULATIONS!!! :slight_smile: I have to read your entire post now…Yea! Yippee!!! (I’m singing that cheesy “Celebration” song now!)

Okay. I’m more collected now, and I read your entire post. :slight_smile: I had to smile when I read that [name]Baby[/name] Meglet/[name]Blake[/name] was born so close to your brother’s birthday. I think I remember [name]Kristen[/name] saying that she thought the baby would come early, but this is such a wonderful, happy surprise!

I’m so sorry for the loss of your brother, [name]James[/name], and am so happy that you’re able to honor him, his life, and his memory in Miss [name]Blake[/name] [name]Antonia[/name] [name]Bellamy[/name] (future Miss Oklahoma).

Considering that you and [name]Kristen[/name] are [name]Megan[/name] [name]Fox[/name] and B to the [name]AG[/name], I’m not surprised that [name]Blake[/name] is a little beauty!

I couldn’t be happier for you, [name]Kristen[/name], and your families, and I wish you all the very, very best!

[name]Welcome[/name], [name]Blake[/name]! We’ve been waiting for you! :slight_smile:

Everyone, thank you so so much for your wonderful words and undying support. I have printed each and every one of your comments up for [name]Kristen[/name], who misses you all terribly and passes on greetings from both her and our little Blakey.

We are going to be sure and upload a ton of pictures for all of you once we are home and situated! As you all can probably tell, I am an insanely proud daddy” I”d love nothing more than to show my perfect little princess off :slight_smile: I have to say today was almost as amazing as yesterday” having our precious angel on my brother”s birthday. I think it trumps any present I ever got him, haha :slight_smile:
