Jenna Fischer Welcomes Daughter Harper Marie
Dish out the frozen yogurt: it’s a girl!
Jenna Fischer welcomed her second child with husband Lee Kirk on Sunday, May 25, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.
“We are pleased to announce the birth of our daughter Harper Marie Kirk,” the couple tell E! News. “The family is doing great. We are happy, healthy and sleepy.”
Not only has the former Office star, 40, been counting down the days until baby’s big debut, but big brother Weston Lee, 2½, couldn’t wait for his new sister to arrive.
“My big pregnancy craving with him was Menchie’s frozen yogurt and there is a Menchie’s across the street from where I delivered. After he was born, there is a picture of me eating Menchie’s [and] holding him,” Fischer told PEOPLE in April.
“We showed him the picture … and I said, ‘Mommy has to go to the hospital to get the baby out and you can come visit me.’ He said, ‘After the baby is out, Mommy gets to eat Menchie’s.’ I said, ‘That’s right … do you want to come to the hospital and have Menchie’s with me?’ And he said yes!”
But the promise of a sweet treat wasn’t enough to calm the mom-to-be’s nerves about doubling up on parenting duties.
“Everyone’s telling me one plus one does not equal two. One plus one feels like four,” Fischer — who kept the sex of the baby private — told PEOPLE.
The actress waited to announce her pregnancy until almost her third trimester, confirming in February that she was expecting.
