Former Family Matters actress Jaimee Foxworth and her longtime boyfriend, Michael Shaw, welcomed son Michael Douglas Shaw Jr. Friday in Los Angeles, her rep confirmed to People magazine.
The baby boy, who was 10 days overdue, weighed in at 6 lbs., 11 oz., and was 19 ¼ inches long.
“This is the best day of my life,” Jaimee, 29, shared – via text! – from the delivery room. “I am so excited to be a mother and I also look forward to getting back to work.”
When she announced her pregnancy in December, Jaimee told People magazine, “I haven’t been this happy in years.”
Jaime went through a challenging period after being written off of Family Matters, turning to drugs and eventually ending up on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. However, with a new baby and a new outlook on life, Jaimee is ready to rebuild. She shared with People magazine, “I’ve been through a lot of pain in the past and … I now look forward to years of joy to share with my child.”
