First-time mom Bethenny Frankel was terrified to hold her preemie baby, Bryn, when she was born in May because the tiny girl only weighed 4 lbs. 12 oz. Five months later, Bryn is thriving and growing bigger every day, much to her mom’s relief!
New moms are filled with worry. It was even worse for first-time mom Bethenny Frankel when she went into labor a month early. She and husband Jason Hoppy, who tied the knot last March, were relieved hold their newborn — a baby girl they named Bryn, as a tribute to Jason’s deceased older brother Bryan. But, because the tiny baby only weighed 4 lbs. 12 oz., Bethenny was worried about caring for her.
“I thought I’d bump her into something and it would be over,” the 39-year-old reality TV star (she’s been on The Apprentice, The Real Housewives of New York City and Bethenny Getting Married?) tells Life & Style.
Five months later, baby Bryn weighs nearly 11 pounds and has developed into what her mom calls a full person. “She’s durable. She’s not a teeny doll,” Bethenny says.
Bryn’s also developing a personality. “She fully talks!” brags Bethenny, who admits that she has no idea what her daughter is saying. “Probably ‘I love you guys,’ or ‘I’m having a great time.’ But she laughs, she giggles. She gets it.”
While Bethenny is loving being a mother, she’s quick to add that there are no more kids in her near future. “I’m definitely not thinking about it,” she tells Life & Style. “I’m just balancing work and baby — and the normal craziness of my life.”
But considering her hubby, Jason, can’t wait to give Bryn a sibling, we have a feeling Bethenny will be showing off a baby bump again sometime soon!
