The actress’ baby, Julius, was born on Tuesday, Oct. 22 in Glendale, California, weighing in at just under 8 pounds. “Julius and his mother are happy and healthy,” a rep for the actress revealed. This is the first child for the 34-year-old and husband, Austin Chick.
Julius was a breech baby, but Morena enlisted the help of Dr. Ronald Wu, who is the only doctor in the LA area who lets expectant mothers birth breech babies in the hospital. “I’m so happy I was able to deliver with Dr. Wu,” she admitted. “Breech delivery is a dying art and he gave me the birth experience I wanted.”
The actress and Austin wed in November 2011, and announced the pregnancy in May 2013.
