Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan just had their new baby girl and it turns out that things weren’t as easy as they would have hoped. EW shared that Hilarie is calling this their “miracle baby.” They had a hard time conceiving this little girl and then it sounds like her birth didn’t really go as planned either. 

As some of you know, @jeffreydeanmorgan is off in Europe getting ready to do some big conventions. And he's self aware enough to know his track record for "spilling the beans" isn't so great (bless his heart!). So before he starts tripping up in an attempt to maintain our privacy, he asked that I go ahead and post something about our little girl's birth. But before I do that, there's something I really want to say to all the women out there who are trying….. It took a long time for Jeffrey and I to have this baby. The first time I got pregnant, it took a year and a half. I surprised him on Christmas with baby Seahawk booties. We cried. We celebrated. We picked out names. And we lost that baby. More losses followed, and as so many couples know, it was heartbreaking. It still is heartbreaking. And every morning of the five years it took us, I'd open my computer at the kitchen table and see the news and I'd grow bitter over the endless parade of celebrities showing off their bumps and babies. I'd weep out of jealousy for how easy it was for them. Didn't they know something could go wrong? Didn't they know that there were other women out there struggling? It pained me to see the corporate sponsored baby showers and magazine covers capitalizing on this human miracle that wasn't happening for us. So when this pregnancy started, we were cautious. I didn't want to celebrate for fear of jinxing it. I didn't want a baby shower. I checked her heartbeat every day, up until the day she was born. And now that she is here, I just stare at her in wonder all day. I see her in her daddy's arms and I don't take any of it for granted. She screams bloody murder and I smile because she is so wildly alive. So now that folks know she's here, I don't want her birth to cause any other woman to weep at her kitchen table. If anything, my wish is that she would restore hope for others. Fertility is a fickle thing. And for the other couples out there who have had dark days, we want to introduce our miracle baby to you and send you our love and support in finding yours. Please meet George Virginia Morgan. She was born February 16th. Her daddy delivered her. We love her very much.

Hilarie Burton didn’t hold back as she teased that her husband Jeffrey isn’t very good at keeping a secret, so she had to go ahead and let the fans know about their daughter. He would be talking to the press a lot and she didn’t want the news to get out because he accidentally slipped. By sharing the story on her Instagram, they were able to control what got out to the media. They are now the proud parents of their second child, daughter George Virginia Morgan. They already have a son Gus, who will be eight this month. 

She shared some pretty big news that her daughter was born on February 16, 2018, and was delivered by her daddy. Hilarie didn’t reveal the details about how that ended up happening, though. It wasn’t easy for her to have this child and she struggled for quite some time with fertility. Hilary Burton really opened up about the fact that they did struggle to have this baby girl.

“It took a long time for Jeffrey and I to have this baby. The first time I got pregnant, it took a year and a half. I surprised him on Christmas with baby Seahawk booties. We cried. We celebrated. We picked out names. And we lost that baby. More losses followed, and as so many couples know, it was heartbreaking. It still is heartbreaking.

The fans love hearing this story about how Hilarie Burton and Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s daughter was born. Most people fell in love with her as Peyton Sawyer on the hit show One Tree Hill. She was recently seen on White Collar and Lethal Weapon. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is now playing the role of Negan on The Walking Dead. Fans fell in love with him on Supernatural and Grey’s Anatomy.

Hilarie Burton is really hoping that opening up about her struggle with fertility will help others to know it is possible to get your “miracle baby.” She doesn’t want anyone “crying at the table” like she did in hopes of having their own child.
