Update: Baby’s name is Chasen August, and he weighed in at 7 lbs and is 19 inches long. Sydney spoke to TV Guide, saying,
[Chasen is] the name of my friend’s brother, who is just a lovely young man.But it’s just a name that stuck in my head. I went online and found outit’s an old English name that means ‘huntsman.’ So that’s cool.
He’s a really, reallygood boy. Of course, there’s a lot of adjustment as we figure out whathe wants and what he needs. But he doesn’t cry a lot, only if there’sreally something bothering him. I suppose I’m tired but I’m just havinga good time. It’s been a really lovely time and we’re enjoying it.
I think I’m coming back to work sometime in July. It depends on howthey want to work me back into the canvas. I’m guessing I’ll startairing again in the beginning of August. I’m just enjoying this timewith the baby. It’s the best. I can’t believe it’s happening!
