Although she wasn’t due to give birth until the first week of April, former Days of Our Lives star Christie Clark Barnes, and her husband, Thomas Barnes, welcomed daughter Hannah Bella recently (likely about two weeks ago). The 34-year-old actress blogs,

So we had our bundle of joy a month early! Hannah was 5 lbs 10 oz. She clearly has her father’s energy and wanted to join the party a bit earlier than was planned.

We are just falling in love with our little lady, and learning the ropes as we go. Didn’t get to read the last couple of chapters in the pregnancy books, trying to sneak in a chapter here and there. Thank God, I had a shower the weekend that she came out of the oven or I’d really be scrambling for items that were needed!

Click below for the story of her husband’s mad dash from the other side of the country to make it for the birth.

Tom had just flown back from the UK to Washington DC, and I didn’t know which hotel he was in when my water broke. Luckily, he always books hotels through American Express, so I had to call them and find out which hotel he was in. American Express booked him on the first flight out of DC, and he made it just in time for the birth.

It was like a scene from a movie the way he describes it, running through the airport screaming, "Out of my way," hopped in a cab and the nurses were all waiting in the hall saying, "This way." Could be a good commercial for American Express. Either way … she is healthy and doing extremely well.

Many thanks,
Christie
