When THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS star Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe) gave birth to her daughter on March 27, there were bigger concerns than sharing photos of the joyful moment on social media but thankfully, she came through once things calmed down a bit! “We did it!” the actress declared. “We are now officially three! Today we welcomed Josephine James into the world. It was the most incredible birth thanks to my amazing midwife Didi and all of the nurses at UCLA Santa Monica. We couldn’t be more thankful for all of their hard work during a time like this.”
Hendrickson, who ABC soap fans watched as Frankie and Maggie on ALL MY CHILDREN and Margaux on GENERAL HOSPITAL, had previously expressed her concerns about delivering her first child during the COVID-19 pandemic, but thankfully, it all went well. Unfortunately, due to the isolation rules, her husband, Rob Meder, was unable to stay with her after their daughter’s birth. “Rob is home resting, “she reported, “since he’s not allowed to be with me postpartum. Hope you’re getting a good night’s sleep, babe, because it’s your last for a while!”
Thankfully, Hendrickson was only scheduled to stay in the hospital for one day and should already be home with Rob and Josephine by the time you read this. “I’m with my sweet girl for 24 hours and I just can’t stop looking at her,” the proud mom expressed. “Thank you to everyone for your love and support. I couldn’t have gotten through this without all of you who have reached out. I’ve read all of your comments and I feel stronger than ever.”
We look forward to seeing even more photos of this little angel now that she’s home and we can watch her grow up. So stay tuned for those, and for more on your favorite daytime stars, keep reading Soaps In Depth magazine.
