Congratulations to Ashley Jones (Parker, GENERAL HOSPITAL; ex-Bridget, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) and her husband, Joel Henricks, on the birth of their son, Hayden Joel!

People is reporting that Hayden Joel was born at 7:06 p.m. on May 24 weighing 7 lbs., 9 oz. and measuring 21 inches long.

“Holding our first child the minute he arrived was the most mesmerizing, perfect moment,” Jones told the magazine. “Everyone says it, but they say it for a reason: my heart bursts with joy and love.”

Jones admits that she and her husband waited until they actually met and held their newborn before committing to a name. “We had friends and family texting name ideas for months,” she said. “But it all came together in the hospital. Joel’s middle name is his father’s name. It’s a tradition that’s been passed on in Joel’s family that we wanted to continue, hence Hayden Joel.”

Henricks’ son from a previous relationship, four-year-old Huck, was thrilled to meet his new little brother, immediately showing him one of his favorite toys.

All the best to the entire family for a lifetime of happiness!
