Gina Glocksen has her own little idol!
Born in Chicago, daughter Daenerys Josephine arrived at 7:47 a.m., weighing in at 8 lbs., 4 oz. and is 20.5 inches long. The couple plan to call her Dany.
It’s been a month full of celebration for Glocksen, who now performs with Ballroom with a Twist — her birthday was on July 4, two days after her official due date.
And while the pregnancy announcement came at a special time for the family — as Glocksen’s mother, Nancy Glowacki, was preparing for double bypass surgery — the couple wanted to wait to surprise everyone with baby’s sex.
“We feel it’s life’s ultimate surprise! I’ve always had a vision of the doctor in scrubs walking into the waiting room telling our family, ‘It’s a ___!’ ” she told PEOPLE in December.
Ultimately, the couple did find out ahead of time — “We caved, but it’s our little secret,” Glocksen said — but eventually shared the sex of the baby via Instagram. The new mom shared the first photos of her newborn on the social media platform Thursday evening.
