Meet Bethenny Frankel’s New Baby Bryn!

Even though her daughter is only 2½ weeks old, Bethenny Frankel can already see one similarity between her newborn and herself.

“She has my E.T. toes,” says Frankel, pointing to Bryn Casey Hoppy‘s little pink feet. “They are so long!”

Frankel, the star of Real Housewives of New York City, always tells it like it is — even when discussing her baby’s early delivery on Saturday, May 8.

Waking Jason Hoppy up around 6 a.m. some five weeks before their first child was due to tell him her water broke, Frankel immediately called the doctor and told her husband to pack their bags.

In his excitement, Hoppy instead started ringing up a few friends.

“Her water broke — we’re having a baby!” he announced. Frankel countered: “We don’t have a baby. We have a puddle.” Looking back, she laughs, “I told him to get a pen and paper and get organized!”

Albert Michael/Startraks

The couple rushed to the hospital. “All I wanted was a bagel and the doctor [told me] I couldn’t eat,” she recalls. “And for two days, I couldn’t.”

After some 30 hours of labor, doctors recommended a c-section to deliver baby Bryn. “She came out like a little doll,” Frankel, 39, says of seeing her daughter for the first time. “It was amazing.”

The couple chose their daughter’s name to honor Hoppy’s brother Bryan, who was killed in a car accident 19 years ago.

“They used to call him Bryn as a nickname,” she explains. “When Jason told me, I thought that would be a great name.”

Having kept mum until Hoppy’s parents arrived at the hospital to meet their new grandchild, revealing Bryn’s name in person was a special moment for the family.

“Jason’s mom was hysterical, crying,” Frankel recalls. “They couldn’t believe we kept it secret.”

Albert Michael/Startraks

At a tiny 4 lbs., 11 oz., Bryn stayed in the NICU for four days until she was strong enough to come home to the family’s apartment in downtown Manhattan.

“We were in this dark little room with our baby. It was almost like Survivor — where we were fending for ourselves,” notes Frankel. “We couldn’t stop staring at her.”

Now settled in at home, Frankel is up every three hours to nurse Bryn — who’s been “such a good baby” — and divides the rest of the parenting duties with Hoppy.

“Jason is the burper and diaper changer,” the natural foods chef laughs. “He loves it when she goes to the bathroom because he has a project!”

All joking aside, “We’re so thankful and lucky to have a healthy baby,” says Frankel, who adds that she’s looking forward to strolling around the Big Apple with Bryn. “This is the new me now.”

She is just precious! Much love to new momma and baby! oh and the new papa!

soph on

I thought the name Bryn might have been inspired by her parents’ names (B for Bethenny, ends with an N sound for Jason), but the actual story behind it is much nicer. Cute pix!


Congrats to mom and dad and grandparents. What a beautiful way to honor their son. Enjoy life Bethanney – be good to each other – please, please, keep the evil and toxicity of the Housewives away from your family. You don’t need LuAnn, Jill or Kelly. They are so jealous it is killing them. Please be happy.

Anonymous on

Her little face is so beautiful! Congratulations from one mom to another!!

carrington on

very cute…glad bethenny got the family she deserves.

I have a question though. Why are there never pic or entries about the Gosselin kids. I thought it was because this blog didn’t do reality tv stars, but that can’t be, because they have the Kardashians, Bethenny, Ryan and Krista. Just wondering. I love to see pics of those kids, they’re so cute.

Shannon on

Bryn’s adorable. Congrats! The story behind Bryn’s name is sweet.

Alicia on

Oh goodness she is adorable!

electra on

The baby is so cute! I’m happy for her and Jason they seem like a good couple. The baby has her jaw!

Tanya on

You see, good things do come to those who wait.. All the best always to Jason, Bethenny and beautiful Bryn who has her angel Uncle to watch over her. God Bless your family! P.S. If your daughter is anything like my son, she is sucking the life out of you.. Stay hydrated! LOL.

Mandy on

Congratulations to Bethenny and Jason! Enjoy this very special gift you as parents have been entrusted with! A touching and wonderful story about how Bryn was named. You all deserve much happiness as a family.

Lisa on

Bethenny I hope that now that your beautiful daughter is here that you don’t allow all that crazy stuff that went on before you had her to continue. You as her MOTHER need to protect her from the crazy females that you are forced to be around on your show that housewivess some of them women scare me and it;s on tv can’t even imagine that being a part of my everyday life. I was wondering if “CRAZY” was a requirement to be on the show. Because all I see is money doesn’t make you have manners that are not there in the first place. Good Luck as a new MOMMY and a new wife you deserve a fresh start away from those weird and back bitting females that you were around

Donna on

Congrats! It is through our relationship with our children that we truly understand the meaning of unconditional love

Journey on

What a precious child! I wish you and Jason a lifetime of happiness with Bryn.

Kim on

Congratulations to Bethenny! Gorgeous baby. I’m so happy for B. and for Jason.

Peg on

Soooooo Cute~~ so happy for you. You will be a GREAT Mommy!
The best to your family always

heather on

how sweet is little Bryn. she’s an itty bitty little thing just like her mama! she should do skinny baby clothes since she has skinny girl drinks…congrats!

rathnawjoe on

Congratulations on your little girl.. I agree with the other post about keeping the negative energy feeding off the other housewives at bay… nothing needs to spoil your newfound life. Sending good wishes your way…. take care…

Julie on

Congrats Bethenny and Jason! So happy for you and the addition of your new family member. Bethenny, you’re an inspiration to women like myself who are still holding out for the whole package, despite the “clock ticking”. Thanks for persevering and doing so with an awesome sense of humour! Looks like a girl can have it all… even the skinny part!

Dana on

SOOOOOOO precious!!!! She is just a honey and so beautiful she brings tears to my eyes. Congratulations Hoppy family 🙂

lynn on

congrats to Mr & Mrs Hoppy, Bryn is beautiful

izzy on

@heather, let’s hope she doesn’t do skinny baby clothes. babies aren’t supposed to be skinny. they can wait til their 20s to worry about that. meanwhile, she’s gorgeous as well as momma and daddy’s a cutie too. i’m happy to see her happy 🙂 i love the name bryn. i might use that one day!

Chie on

What a beautiful baby and beautiful mother! Baby Bryn couldn’t stand waiting one more month and wanted to see the world! She should be energetic like her mom!! Congrats Bethenny and Jason!! Love you both!!

Lynn on

Bethenny congratulations to both of you!!! Bryn is so so precious. Take good care and keep her away from those other crazy housewives Except for Alex the others are CRAZY!

Ashlee on

Izzy, Skinny Girl is a brand Bethenny made. Despite the name, it’s only concern is with healthy eating and living; not being a size 0. It also doesn’t have anything to do with restricting the diet of an infant.

Marla on

i love the family name. seriously, beautiful and incredibly touching. i love bethenny: her sense of humor; her perspective…she cracks me up. just please, keep that precious baby away from the nonsense and drama (i.e., kelly).

Lorie Ames on

Bethenny, what a beautiful little baby girl and what a precious name because of its meaning. Leave the drama of the housewives behind, you have someone much more special to concentrate on. God Bless and best wishes to you and your new family.

Evelyn Worley on

What an amazing women you are to have been thru such an up and down year with such dignity. Beautiful baby. Always keep her close to you.

Ms June on


Congrats on the husband (what a well deserved catch) and the absolutely adorable baby Bryn. You and Jason will be wonderful parents to this precious little angel. Be insanely happy and enjoy every moment. And the tribute to Jason’s brother, how touching. It just shows how beautiful you are inside and out. Peace and happiness!

Crystal on

Luv ya bethenny.But please stay away from all that toxic crap from the housewifes show.They are all crazy,so much so that I would be afraid for you & bryn.Surround her with nothing but love & happiness.Hope your not coming back to the show or did I see you have a spinoff of your happy for you all.♥♥♥.

annie on

bethenny – what a wonderful, wonderful and precious blessing.

bringing a baby into this life moves you from ‘self’ to selfless. a life depends on you for everything.

it is my hope she will be surrounded by the goodness in you and your sweet husband without all the (and i can’t believe i am about to use this word) DRAMA waiting outside your door. (i have said if i hear ‘drama’ one more time, i’ll run screaming from the room. really. every series, every episode, every housewife. let’s just call it what it is. poor behavior by women – which is the most vicious, conniving and sometimes unforgivable. and, good grief! all the expletives. my father told me once that the reason people feel the need to use this type of language as conversation rather than emphasis is because they do not have a command of the english language.)

your baby needs your protection, and you deserve to be protected as well. i will be watching your show and hope it will bring joy and peace into your life, which now seems so complete.

heartfelt congrats!

Sami on

I love Bethenny, and I love Bryn’s name! Have been so curious as to whether she would have a boy or a girl all along…glad that she’s okay even though she came out early! Can’t wait to see all the pregnancy stuff on Bethenny Getting Married on Bravo.

cnethartman on

Congratulations on your beautiful little Bryn. I cried when I read the story behind the name and then waiting until she was born to tell your mother-in-law. What a moment that must have been.

Below is what I sent to Jill, just didn’t want her to say the public is on her side. NOT
You can’t be serious. Bethenny tried and tried to talk with you and you listened to LuAnn who was dead set against you being friends with Bethenny. Of course she is not going to tell you about the baby, her engagement and her wedding. You treated her like she was a psyco and yet you befriended Kelly who is just plain nuts. Do you think your new best friends Luann and Kelly are not talking about you. You can tell when Luann is lying the corner of her mouth quivers. She does it everytime she lies. I think you may want to find a hobby as it will be very hard to ever have the viewers believe anything you say.

Good Luck.

Lisa on

Looking great for just having a baby…Congrats!! Glad everything turned out ok Bethanny!

eve diaz on

Bethenny & Jason congrats on your beautiful baby girl Bryn. You’re going to fantastic as a mom.

Enjoy your time and take lots of pictures. Bryn C. Hoppy is gorgeous already; imagine a few months from now. Love to the 3 of you and true friends and Hoppy Family.

Robin M. on

That’s a sweet story. I was wondering where the name Bryn came from!

Stevie B on

I Love to hear storys like this.. She is a lovely baby and she had an angel watching after her, it was her older brother looking after her and it’s good to see that ya’ll named her after him. My daughter was also born at 3 lbs and 1.8 oz and got to come home at Four pounds… I believe that she had an angel also, I had lost a baby a year earlier and about lost her but i believe that he was looking after her until she came home from the hospital… Thank the Lord for little Miracles and for the doctors that help them get stronger…

Mark on

Cograts: What a beautiful child and the name Bryn is so beautiful in iself. I think is woderful the stroy and honer behind it. By the way, Bryn is a Welsh name meaning “Hill”. We have 2 Bryn’s in the family.. Love the sound of it.. I rolls of the tongue and sings to the heart.

Meredith on

The little angel is so sweet. Congrats, I hope all continues to go well.

Brynn on

Love the name 🙂

katy on

Lisa on

Way to go Bethenny and Jason – she is truly adorable. I have been looking for a picture – and this is beautiful. You are my favorite because you tell it like it is!! I couldn’t be happier for you – as my mother would always say everything happens for a reason. Enjoy her – they grow up so quickly.

Judy on

On the first season I heard you say I raised myself and that exactly what I had to do since the parents had more exciting things to do like throwing dishes screaming etc. I had to raise my little brother as well. So I do understand what you said and have been a fan of yours for all of seasons. Beautiful Bryn!! I am so happy for you and look forward to your new show. The stupid people who have been write in about you and your life just throw them in the ocean.
after I had my second little girl I was still like a stringbean because of all the extra things that I had to do the weight just fell off. Oh on the stringbean thing my mother told me I was a green stringbean. Very nice huh
All the most wonderful things should keep on forever with your new family. When I realized thats my parents didn’t know anything about me when I had my baby at 16 I knew that now I had someone to love and love me back

Bryn is a beautiful baby, and your life with her and Jason will be a beautiful one from now on. You have had enough heartache! It’s time for you to spread those Mama wings and FLY! I know from watching the show from the beginning that you and Jason will cherish each other and all your babies to come. Wishing you only love and happiness for the rest of your lives. Who needs Jill??!! You HAVE the best.

Bethenny you are a very honest person and seem like you’re willing to admit when you do something wrong, but also willing to fight the battles when they’re necessary. So glad things worked out for you. I don’t find babies all that cute until they’re a few weeks old and a bit filled out, but she’s still very lovable/adorable being so tiny. I look forward to seeing photos of her in a few weeks when I know she’ll be deliciously cute!

I had two premature babies back to back 2yrs apart,my 1st was a 27 week 3lbs, his name is Chase Riley, My 2nd was 33 week 5lbs, her name is Audrey Madison and wanted to give you a congrats on surviving having a preemie also the dark N.I.C.U. Having a preemie really put life into perspective. They are not touching earth yet! Little angels, they are such strong personalities, they also adapt easy. I can believe your lil Bryn is a good baby, both mine were such troopers. I send love from one preemie mommy to another. She is so darn cute.

God Bless Lisa Grieb

I could not believe when I heard your daughters name it is sooo cute. I guess I should think that cause my 15 month olds name is Brenn Catherine. We named her after our moms. Congrats on the new little bryn she is to cute for words. Motherhood is the best job on earth!!

Sarah gulley on

Congrats on the new little miss Bryn!!!! My daughter is 15 months and her name is Brenn Catherine. We named her after our mothers. I hope all goes will with her and make sure to enjoy every moment cause it goes by so fast.

Jen on

What a cute baby girl!!! Though I wouldn’t expect anything less from mixing Bethenny and Jason’s good looks. 🙂 Congratulations, she’s absolutely gorgeous!!

Shelly on

Congratulations to my favorite housewife!!! I love you Bethenney and couldn’t be happier for the three of you. You will make a wonderful mommy. Bryn is a lucky little peanut. I thinks it’s time to quit the NY Housewives and keep your world sweet, clean and positive. Being married and raising a baby and having a career are enough challenges! Little Bryn needs her mommy as much as she can have you around. I can’t get enough of you on T.V. You crack me up! You’re the best Greek chorus ever. Reminds me of me, only better. Every time I see the little clip of you on Bravo where Jason is waxing your pregnant belly and you say “Yeah” I laugh.

Your baby is beautiful. God Bless your family.

Congratulations!!! Bryn is so beautiful and angelic. Being a first time mom myself (my son alex rocco now 17 mos) it’s the most rewarding feeling in the world. I never knew how much i can love a little baby until having mine……Bethenny and Jason..cherish every second of every day with Bryn because the moments just go by so quickly.

Lynn on

Denise Latimer on

Bethenny,your wedding was absolutely beautiful and baby Bryn is adorable – a cutie-patootie if there ever was one. I had 2 girls, all grown up now, and I breastfed both. It’s such a beautiful, intimate, bonding experience and I know you are loving every minute of it. I am so glad you found such a sweet, intelligent, very caring man to share your life with. It’s obvious that you both have beautiful, loving hearts and you deserve all the wonderful and happy things in your life. The smartest decision you made – after saying “yes” to Jason -was exorcising the “toxic trilogy”(Jill/LuAnn/Kelly)from your life. All I can say is, it’s about time, as in holy shit balls, hallelujah and pass the GD Red Velvet! Congratulations on a GREAT show, Bethenny. I absolutely adore you and Jason and never miss an episode. I think your adorable show is becoming the modern day “I Love Lucy.” It’s so sweet and funny – a real “feel good” show – which is a wonderful change from all the depressing, morbid crap that’s out there. Your show and Kathie Griffin’s “life on the D-List” keep me in stitches. Don’t ever change, Bethenny – we all love you just the way you are. Oh, perhaps this is a sore subject, but how is the “other b-a-b-y” (Cookie) doing with THE baby?

Love ya! All the Happiness in the World to you and Jason!

All the very best to my favorite N.Y. Lady, Bethenny and her new family.
May you live in love and happiness.

terri on

Bethanny I think you are the strongest,smartest,and beatiful woman. I am so happy that you have this great man. As a mother who believes alot of your same ideals and principals I am so happy for you. Bryn is beatiful expecially the name. My husband and I did the same thing with our Bailey. My sister turned me on to your show even though I don’t watch alot of t.v. and you inspire.

Laurie on

I watched R.H.W. OF N.Y mostly to see you. I have so much respect for you. You came along way. From hell,to heaven. You deserve it.I made up this saying a few years ago. It totally applies to you.I don’t want to go through life wishing I did and did’nt, I want to go through life doing and say I did.You are an insperatio. A beautiful women, husband and daughter.
Stay away from Kelly and Jill. God bless you and your new family, Laurie
P.S. I do not drink hard liquor, but I am buying a bottle of Skinny Girl vodka.Very unique.I love the picture and color chosen.

Congrats Bethany and Jason,

Bryn is so precious!!! What a great blessing!!! She is a nice combination of the both of you. I think she looks more like Bethany. She couldn’t have picked a better birthday it happens to be the date of my husband’s and I Anniversary. Good Luck and continue to “Have a Great Life”!!!!!

Donna on

Oh how I love this show and oh how I laugh at Bethenny when she doesn’t understand how to do something, like the car seat, I laughed so hard I almost peed in my pants. She is wonderful in a show of her own and believe me, she can keep the pace going unlike Housewives of New York, everyone was so busy back stabbing everyone, I no longer watch it, “But” I am hooked on Bethenny and her family and the assistants….such great work you guys, wonderful show, can’t wait for each week to come. Don’t stop now!!

Sharon Fink on

What a beautiful family. You deserve only the best that lofe has to offer. Stay come, moe more slowly, and give yourself a break. Motherhood was not bilt in a day. i am sure that Jason is an enormous help. I have four adult children who are all married and seven grandchildren. Maintain your patience and get reswt when you can. It works out as long as you are not so hard on yourself. Have realistic expectations and you will see that everything works out fine. Mazal Tov and may G-d in his infinite wisdom less you and your family.
With love,
Grandma Sharon

I love your new show, you and Jason have such a great relationship!! You seem so much happier now that you are not on the Housewives Of NY. I will miss seeing you on that show, but it is better for you and Jason and Bryn, you are so much more relaxed. You don’t need all that Drama!!!!
You, Jason and Cookie,Take this time to enjoy your blessing from the Angels, Live, Love, and Laugh!
