Actress Alexandra Breckenridge and her musician husband Casey Neil Hooper are first-time parents.
The Walking Dead star gave birth to son Jack Breckenridge Hooper on 3 September (16), and chose a natural water birth at a hospital, where she was assisted by a team of midwives and a doula.
The new mum praised the people who helped her bring Jack into the world, and has no regrets over her decision to go the less popular route of a natural birth, telling People magazine, "I had the benefit of being surrounded by experienced, loving women, while being overseen by medical staff, just in case. Luckily, everything went beautifully and no interventions were needed. I couldn’t be happier with the experience. I’m definitely an advocate for water birth if you choose to go natural.”
Alexandra went on to gush over her newborn, saying, "When I first held my baby, the world melted away and I knew he was the most important thing I’d ever do."
Jack's arrival comes nearly a year after Alexandra and Casey, a guitarist for Katy Perry, tied the knot.
