Ryder James Smith arrived weighing 8 lbs. even, Smith shared. According to PEOPLE magazine, he measured 20½ inches long and was born in Atlanta.
“💙 Ryder James Smith 💙,” the new mom captioned a family photo gallery. “We had no idea what our family was missing until you came into the world.”
She added of herself, her husband and their older son, 2½-year-old Lochlan Owens, “We are madly in love and so is big brother!”
Shyann Malone and Susan Hendricks are expected to fill-in for Smith during her maternity leave from HLN.
