Martha’s only child, Alexis, has welcomed a little girl of her own via a surrogate mom. Amazing news!

Alexis Stewart, 45, has struggled to conceive a child for years, spending almost $20,000 a month on fertility treatments. But now, her wait is over. Alexis welcomed a baby girl named Jude, via a surrogate, on March 8, and has given Martha Stewart a grandchild! Congratulations!

And although Martha, 69, may have been eager to become a grandmother, Alexis says her mom will not be called “Grandma.”

“Martha is going to be called, ‘Martha,'” Alexis announced on her radio show, Whatever with Alexis & Jennifer. “She seemed to have no problem with it. … I was like, ‘Do you really want to be ‘grandma’? I don’t like the term grandma!” Hmm, what’s wrong with ‘Nanny?’ ”

Of course being that she is Martha Stewart, “Martha” has already splurged on little Jude’s baby gifts. “She was born at 1 in the morning … and [Martha] brings this huge box from Bergdorf [Goodman],” Alexis says. “I open it up and I look inside and it’s full of baby clothes, all with embroidery, and I’m like, ‘Wow, I guess I’m going to be allowed to buy myself something pretty nice because all this stuff’s going back!’

“If the kid can’t see it, why the hundred-dollar [clothes]?” she continued. “Only books, child-appropriate or whatever: that’s the only thing that I want. No toys please!”

Well, we know Jude will already have plenty of cookbooks around!
