Audrey Roloff Gushes Over Daughter, Shares Precious New Pic
The longest wait of Audrey Roloff and Jeremy Roloff’s life is over.
But it was so well worth it.
On September 10, more than a week after she was due to give birth, the Little People, Big World star finally welcomed her first child into the world.
As confirmed at the time by Us Weekly, Audrey and Jeremy welcomed Ember Jean into their universe on Sunday morning, telling the tabloid that they were “thankful for this little life we’ve been blessed with and cannot wait to see all that she becomes.”
Now, in more extensive comments posted on Instagram, both reality stars gush even harder over their incredible bundle of joy.
“Our precious baby girl – Ember Jean Roloff – is finally here!!! 7.13 lbs 20.25″ long and born on September 10th,” wrote Audrey along with the photo above, adding in amazement:
“Wow. Natural labor was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but holding our baby for the first time was undeniably the most empowering and rewarding moment of my life.”
“Of course, I wrote “always more” on my hand when I went into labor, but never have these words carried more meaning.
“The whole time I just kept reminding myself of the MORE that was within me through Christ – that I could keep enduring, surrendering, trusting, and pushing more and more because of Christ’s strength within me.”
Audrey, who was as patient as an expecting mother can be throughout her pregnancy, went on to write about how the pain of giving birth quickly turned into a feeling she had never experienced before in her life:
“The second she was out of my belly and into my arms, the tears of pain ceased, and Jeremy and I looked at our daughter and each other with tears of uncontainable joy.
“We are in complete awe of the miracle of life, and feeling so blessed to be entrusted with such a beautiful daughter.”
She concluded by addressing her newborn directly:
Sweet little Ember, may you always be a light in the darkness, glowing in all you do, enduring, feirce, and hard to extinguish.
May you always believe in the more that is within you, and when stoked and kindled by your Creator – may you be able to burn and glow even MORE than you ever could on you own.
We love you so much Ember Jean Roloff. Thank you for making us “mom and dad.”
Jeremy, meanwhile, also had a few things to say about his daughter.
After welcoming Ember to “planet Earth,” he could hardly contain himself on Instagram yesterday, writing the following:
“She’s absolutely beautiful – a face that draws you in. What a miraculous experience.
“So much to say, but for now we’re resting at home soaking In the present – honored that we’ve been entrusted with this little life.
“Welcome to our family Ember Jean, we’re so excited to meet you. May you be a glowing, fierce, and radiant light in this world.”
We could not be happier for the Roloffs.
Ember Jean is the second baby to grace their family in just a few months.
Tori and Zach Roloff became parents to a son named Jackson Kyle back in mid-May.
They’ve been very open with pictures of their child ever since, sharing new ones almost every week and keeping fans apprised of Jackson’s status.
As long-time fans of these TLC stars, we can only hope Jeremy and Audrey are equally candid and generous.
But, for now, we just hope they get some rest. They’ve earned it and they’ll need it!
