Bethany Joy Galeotti Welcomes First Child: Maria!

Congratulations are in order for Bethany Joy Galeotti and husband Michael Galeotti! The One Tree Hill star and her rockstar hubby recently welcomed daughter Maria. The proud new mama shared the above picture and announced the happy news on her website today (February 23):

Michael and I are pleased to announce the arrival of our beautiful girl, Maria. I’ll probably be MIA from my blog for a few weeks as we adjust to life with our girl, but I’m hoping to bring in a few “guest editors”! Bless you guys and thanks for all your thoughts and prayers! xoxo Michael & Joy”

Maria is the first child for the Galeottis. Bethany has been married to Michael, a member of the band Enation, since 2005.

Thanks to CBS reader SAGOT!

    Yaay! I’m so happy for them both. Love Joie, love the baby’s name! I also wanted to say that I’m happy to see Joie is finally in this site 🙂

      Plus, how funny is the fact Joie’s character Haley James-Scott (from ‘One Tree Hill’) is giving birth this next week?!

    That is a great picture. Much better than anything you’d see on a magazine cover.
    They look so happy.

    so nice that they didn’t name her something insane. Maria is a very cute and normal name.

    I was so happy to read this announcement on her blog and I’m happy she felt comfortable enough to share a picture, considering the gross invasion of her privacy that occurred when she was pregnant. Such a beautiful little girl with a beautiful name to match. I’m glad she didn’t pick an odd name, but one that’s normal without being too common. Well wishes to them all!
