Mayim Bialik Welcomes Second Son, Frederick Heschel
|Adrian Varnedoe/Pacific Coast News|
Update: We’ve heard from Mayim, who gives us the details and tells CBB about her delivery experience with her second son!
“Frederick Heschel arrived at 8:32 a.m. on Friday, August 15th, weighing in at 7 lbs, 15 oz and 20 ¼ inches long. His first name is for my grandpa, and his middle name is for Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma. In Hebrew, Ephraim Hirsch.
He was born after a remarkably fast and beautiful natural one-and-a-half hour labor at our home, assisted only for the final pushing stage of labor! I used hypnosis for pain management. Fred was born with my water never breaking, known as being born “in the caul” (amniotic sac). Our 3-year-old, Miles, watched the whole thing from his highchair while eating granola!
Frederick is exclusively breastfed on demand and doubled his birth weight by two months of age! Miles does not attend preschool, so he is home with us all the time, is adjusting really well and doing pretty great.
[Since people are asking,] I completed my doctorate the week I got pregnant with Fred, and I took my doctoral hood at eight months pregnant!”
Originally posted November 10th: Mayim Bialik has welcomed her second child, it seems! The former Blossom star, 32, was spotted nursing her new baby while waiting for 3-year-son Miles and husband Michael Stone to finish up a ride at the farmers’ market on Sunday in Los Angeles, Calif.
TMZ reports that the baby is a boy named Fred. We have reached out to Mayim’s rep and will update with confirmation and details when available.
Mayim — who has bachelors and doctoral degrees in neuroscience — and Michael announced the pregnancy in June.
