You may feel very confused about when Erin Andrews was actually pregnant with a child, but we are here to clear that up.
Erin Andrews and her husband Jarret Stoll just added another member to their family after they welcomed their first child together, a baby boy, via surrogate. This huge news comes after a long nine-year journey to become parents, according to a report from PEOPLE.
“Our new biggest fan. So happy for @ErinAndrews & Jarret,” read the caption.
The newborn’s arrival comes after Andrews previously shared her journey to motherhood, including her experience with IVF.
“For those familiar, you know it’s a time-consuming and emotionally draining process,” she wrote in a 2021 essay for Facebook Bulletin. “This is my 7th one, and I’ve been going through these treatments since I was 35 years old. I’m now 43, so my body is kind of stacked against me. I have been trying to do IVF treatment for a while now, but sometimes it doesn’t go the way you want it. Your body just doesn’t allow it.”
The former “Dancing With the Stars” co-host credited her “amazing” surrogate for giving her and Stoll their baby boy
“Our whole journey with our surrogate and her family was incredible,” Andrews said, adding that both she and her surrogate cried when Mack was born, as reported by Page Six.
Andrews detailed his birth on Friday’s “Calm Down With Erin and Charissa” podcast episode, saying there was ” a little bit of an emergency in the delivery room.”
She stated since the surrogate “dilated really fast,” there were concerns about the baby’s heartbeat as he “dropped” into the birth canal.
“I had my head facing the wall because I didn’t want to be in the way,” Andrews recalled. “All of the sudden, a nurse grabbed me and said, ‘[The surrogate] wants to hold your hand.’
“At that moment, Jarrett and I turned into the biggest sports fans,” she continued. “‘Come you, you can do this! You’ve got this girl!’”
Andrews and Stoll’s new chapter as parents comes six years after they tied the knot in a 2017 ceremony. The year prior, she had been diagnosed with cervical cancer but she would undergo surgery and was declared cancer-free.
