The Young and the Restless spoilers has some fantastic news to share about a popular Y&R star. Elizabeth Hendrickson, who portrays Chloe Mitchell on the CBS soap, welcomed her new baby into the world on Friday, March 27th. Elizabeth and her husband Rob Meder had a baby girl, named Josephine James.
According to People Magazine, Josephine was born at 9:22am and weighed 6lb, 11 oz. “We are thrilled to introduce our little Josephine James Meder to the world – she’s perfect in every way,” Elizabeth told People.
“When dreaming about the birth of your first child, words like ’social distancing’ and ’shelter in place’ never seem to enter into the picture. Yet here we were,” Elizabeth said in the interview. “Over the past month we simply focused on the things that we could control, and we reminded ourselves how lucky we were and stayed positive.”
Elizabeth continued: “We would like to thank all the nurses, the midwives, and all the staff at UCLA Santa Monica who are at work, putting themselves at risk to be there for us when we need them most. They truly are lifesavers.”
The delivery came the day after Elizabeth posted on Instagram that they had just checked into the hospital after making the decision to induce labor. “We felt it was safest to get her here safely before Rob wasn’t allowed in the delivery room like they’re doing in San Fran and NY,” Elizabeth explained in the post.
She continued: “My heart goes out to all of the mamas that are faced with being separated from their partners during delivery right now. I really can’t imagine doing this alone.” The good news here is that mother and baby are doing well, and the People Magazine photos show both Elizabeth and Rob happily with the baby.
Of course, as Y&R viewers know, Elizabeth’s pregnancy was written into the show, as her character Chloe is also pregnant. However, Chloe’s child will be a little boy. It’s been great seeing Elizabeth glowing on-screen in recent episodes, and we expect that Chloe will be having her baby soon as well.
We’re thrilled for Elizabeth, Rob, and little Josephine. Our congratulations go out to them all and we wish them the best! Stay tuned to the Young and the Restless and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Y&R recaps, spoilers, and news.
