According to People, the proud parents were overjoyed to share the news of their new arrival. Riley Anne Mesnick was born on Thursday, Mar. 14 in Seattle, Washington. She made her safe arrival in the afternoon hours weighing in at 6 lbs., 8 oz. and measuring 18 ¾ inches long. And to top it off, she was sporting a full head of hair, something her dad jokes she’ll probably have more of than him over the next few years.
Molly and Jason admitted that they’d been trying to jumpstart her labor but nothing had worked not even spicy foods. So Jason took some advice from one of his friends and tried a technique that was supposed to bring on labor. He said he massaged Molly’s feet between the ankle and Achilles tendon before bed on Wednesday night and it must have worked because Molly woke him up around 3 a.m. on Thursday morning and said it was time to go to the hospital.
After Riley Anne’s arrival, Jason said he was amazed to see the love between his wife and their daughter. “What’s amazing to me is when Molly is holding Riley; her eyes do not come off her. I’m already seeing how much Molly loves the baby.”
Riley Anne joins older brother, Tyler, 8, Jason’s son from a previous marriage. Big brother Tyler has been patiently waiting for a little brother or sister for quite some time now. And he’s already taken by his baby sister. “He was here earlier holding her and kissing her and it was really, really cute,” Jason said. “We’re so happy!”
