It’s a boy for former Guiding Light star Marcy Rylan, 28, and fiancé Don Money!

The couple recently welcomed Jackson Robert Money, a rep for the show tells Soap Opera Digest. Baby boy weighed in at 8 lbs., 12 oz.

The pregnancy was announced in April, with the 5′ tall actress joking that she hoped her feet would grow along with her belly!

“I’m also looking forward to the [feet swelling] because I’m a size 5 and no one makes shoes under a size 6, so I have a really hard time [with that]. If my feet go up a size, it’ll make my life so much better!”

Congrats to them! I always think the babies you Americans have are tiny because most of the babies here in Iceland are 9 lbs 2 oz and heavier 😉

I totally know what she means about her feet. I wear a size 5 too and it’s very difficult to find cute shoes. There have been times that I’ve found a pair of boots that I just “had to have” so I buy them in size 6 and wear two pairs of socks with them. LOL. I’m short as well (5’2″).

My last son (mom of 4 boys) weighed 8lbs 12oz, he was my biggest and my only c-section (breech).

I Love love love the name Jackson! Congrats to her and her family! Babies are so wonderful.

Kim on

Patrice on

Wow, congratulations to Marcy and Don! I don’t know much about her except that she seems to be so sweet in real life (which in turn makes her an INCREDIBLE actress for her diva role on the show!), but I thought for sure that she would have a girl! Good for them, I bet he’s adorable : )

Julia, that’s an interesting tidbit. I’ve always had big babies so big seems normal to me. It’s neat to know that bigger is common in some countries.

Marcy is adorable and her son’s name is really sweet.
