Happy 4th Birthday Bryn Hoppy

Name: Bryn Hoppy

Date of Birth: May 8, 2010

Parents: Bethenny Frankel & Jason Hoppy

Siblings: none


♥ Bryn was born in New York City

♥ She was born via C-section after 30 plus hours of labor and came out like a “little doll” according to her mother

♥ She weighed 4 lbs & 12 oz at birth

♥ Bryn stayed in the NICU for 4 days until she was strong enough to come home to the family’s apartment in downtown Manhattan

♥ Her name was chosen to honor Jason’s brother Bryan who died in a car accident over twenty years ago


“They used to call him Bryn as a nickname. When Jason told me, I thought that would be a great name. Jason’s mom was hysterical, crying. They couldn’t believe we kept it secret.” – mama Bethenny recalling the emotional significance behind her new daughter’s name.

“All of the sudden she just turned into a person. I love her so much she’s the sweetest thing in the entire world. We hit the baby lottery.” – Bethenny on baby Bryn.

“Jason is incredible with Bryn. He’s just not a lazy person, and he does come from a Place of Yes. He walks Cookie, changes diapers, does ‘burpeez’ and everything else. I waited this long to marry someone who could be a partner like this.” – Bethenny on her then husband.

“She’s now standing up. It’s amazing how they’re so interactive and involved. We appreciate it because we’re older, every single thing is the biggest deal I spend all the time in the world that I can with her.” – Bethenny on her first born daughter.

“Jason’s parents are practicing Catholics. Jason goes to church every Sunday. I have to be supportive and allow Bryn to be Catholic — although I wouldn’t necessarily want that. They put in the time and commitment, they have faith, and it would be hypocritical for me to suggest otherwise. Faith, culture, structure and guidance are good things.” – Bethenny on raising her daughter Catholic.

  • Bryn was named for JASON’s brother Bryan who died, not Bethenny’s.

    She is such a cutie. I wish they had worked out too.

    By the way, yeah, it was Jason’s brother. Why do you think in your own quotes you are reporting that Jason’s mother was so touched by the gesture?? Does it make sense that Jason’s mother would be hysterical over them naming the baby after Bethenny’s brother??

      Thanks – we changed it to reflect Jason’s brother.
