I’m so happy He picked me to be your mommy,” the 34-year-old gushed over her tot.
Magnolia Belle will join big brothers Gatlin Avery, 2, Gibson Kyle, 4, and Jennings Tyler, 5; as well as teenage sis Ricki. Ricki’s dad is the late race car driver Ricky Hendrick, who died in a plane crash in 2004.
The baby arrived on Sunday, October 18, with her mom posting a video of the happy event to share with everyone. “Baby #5 …. oh heavenly day,” she wrote.
