Expectant mother Melissa Ordway (Abby, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) recently shared a photo of herself on the streets of Beverly Hills on the day of her 34-week appointment, declaring “We are so excited to meet baby girl!” And it looks like little Sophie Jolie Gaston couldn’t wait, either, since Ordway gave birth a month earlier than expected!
Just a few weeks earlier, the actress and husband Justin Gaston (ex-Ben, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) took their one-year-old daughter Olivia out to snap a family pic where you could tell by her baby bump that the new addition to the family was coming very soon!
It’s a big change from the photo Ordway shared on Aug. 30 when she took little Olivia along for a doctor’s visit. “Me and my two baby girls!” she captioned the image of her holding both children. “Loved getting to see Baby Girl Gaston #2 at our 20 week appointment!”
The Y&R star did one of the cutest gender reveals by using a montage of images of little Olivia in a shirt with a very special message on it. “It’s a girl!” she declared. “We are so excited that Olivia is going to have a little sister! Can’t wait for a house full of girls!”
Ordway has been using cute family photos to share baby news all the way since back in July when she first announced her pregnancy with a fun group photo in front of a wall that reads “Made in LA.” “We are thrilled to announce we are having a baby!” Ordway posted with the photo of Dad holding Olivia as Mom holds her belly and a photo of the sonogram. “Baby Gaston #2 is due in January 2018!” she added.
The couple’s first child, Olivia, was born on April 30, 2016, and the family finalized her adoption on Feb. 27, 2017. Shortly after the big announcement, Ordway also shared a photo of her little angel wearing an adorable shirt that reads “Promoted to Big Sister” on it. “She’s going to be the best big sister,” the proud mom declared, adding the hashtag “#myheart”.
Although Gaston might not feel the same way as his wife about being the only guy in the house, we’re sure he’s just as delighted by the big news. With the due date fast approaching, we look forward to seeing the beautiful baby pictures once Baby Gaston #2 arrives in January!
Congratulations to the entire happy family for a lifetime of happiness!
