MythBusters' Kari Byron Welcomes Daughter Stella Ruby

It’s a girl for Kari Byron! The co-host of Discovery Channel’s MythBusters and her husband Paul Urich became first-time parents when they welcomed a daughter at 11:35 p.m. on Sunday, June 28th, a rep for the network reveals to CBB.

Daughter Stella Ruby weighed in at 8 lbs., 12 oz, and mama and baby are “doing well.”

Kari, in a humorous skit with her co-hosts, had confirmed the pregnancy in February. Last month, she told Pregnancy magazine that life on set had become a whole new learning experience. “I have weird little worries like how loud does a gunshot have to be for the baby to hear it,” the 34-year-old laughed.

It’s a great name. Strange to hear Ruby as a middle name, but it has a nice ring to it.

I’m glad to hear that everything went ok. 8lb 12oz is a baby my Mother would think it was just gas. lol I was 11 lb 5 oz 26 inches long. YIPPEE that must have been fun huh. I was the biggest, but she had 4 more. Moms a big Irish lady. About 6.1, and 190 lbs. I don’t know why I did’nt get red hair, because my Grandmother, Mother Brother, Sister, cousins all got it. Owell I also did’nt get all the freckles. Just some, and I can go in the sun:whereas they can’t. ha,ha,ha At least I get to swim in Dads pool. Anyway congrats on having a healthy baby girl.
