Former POW Jessica Lynch and fiance welcome Dakota Ann
Former prisoner of war, Jessica Lynch, 23, and fiance, Wes Robinson, 25, welcomed a baby girl on Friday. Dakota Ann weighed in at 7 pounds, 10 ounces and is apparently a chubby little girl; "she is just fat and gorgeous…Jessi was calling her a little porker…she already sucks her two fingers and has wonderful chubby cheeks." Dakota is named for a close friend of Jessica’s, Lori Piestewa, a soldier who was killed when their military convoy was attacked in Iraq in March 2003; "Dakota is a Native American word for friend or ally, and Ann was Lori’s middle name." Dakota was due to arrive via c-section on the 23rd of this month but an earlier delivery was decided on due to Jessica’s previous injuries.
