Essence Atkins Welcomes Son Varro
Essence Atkins and her husband Jaime Mendez got the best present they could have asked for on Christmas Day — a son.
He’s the first child for the couple, who were married in September 2009 after meeting on Match.com.
Atkins had a relatively painless pregnancy up until the final weeks, she writes.
“I’m convinced the last month of pregnancy prepares [you for] no sleep when the baby arrives. Ugh, I’ve been awake 21 hours,” she Tweeted recently.
