Update: Melissa Joan Hart and Mark Wilkerson welcome second son, Braydon
Update March 16th: Early this morning, Melissa blogged on her MySpace that Brady, as they’ve apparently nicknamed him, is doing well — as is big brother Mason.
Hello! Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments and emails.
BraydonHart Wilkerson was born March 12th at 3:00pm (on the dot). He wasthankfully smaller (7 pounds, 3 ounces) than Mason (9 pounds!), and Ihad a better experience this time around. I was able to do itcompletely natural, no drugs — and it was much shorter than Mason’sbirth (but by no means easy!) and now we’re home bonding and adjustingto this new miracle! Mason is a perfect big brother — he’s loving,gives Brady lots of kisses and tries to helps me out.
I’vebeen getting a lot of requests for photos, but right now we’re stayingprivate and keeping some things just for us. Take my word for it — he’s adorable and looks exactly like Mason did at birth! We will bereleasing photos soon though, so keep an eye out.
CBB note: The baby will be introduced in People magazine in the coming weeks.
Update 11:30 pm: A message for CBB readers from Melissa!
Thank you all! He’s so cute and I can’t believe I did it au naturel. Myhubby and mom were amazing coaches and got this little man to come outwith no drug help at all! Such a different experience than Mason. The body is a wonder.

Melissa and Mark confirmed the pregnancyin September. By the fall, they shared the knew the sex of the baby,but would be keeping it private. In December, Melissa and close friend Soleil Moon Frye did a magazine spread together. In January, we learned that the baby would not be continuing the M-name tradition, got a peek into Melissa and Mark’s home, and did a CBB photoshoot. Throughout the pregnancy, Melissa wrote a journal exclusively for CBB readers. Her due date had been the first week of March.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
