After three years of trying to start a family, Michelle Stafford‘s biggest wish has finally come true.
The Young and the Restless star welcomed daughter Natalia Scout Lee Stafford on Monday (December 21) at 11:23 p.m., PEOPLE reports.
Baby Natalia – born via surrogate – weighed 8 lbs., 3 oz. and measured 19 inches in length. “She is healthy, gorgeous, and amazing – Michelle is out of her mind happy,” her rep states.
The 44-year-old Emmy-award winning actress recently said she tried artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization and considered adoption in her quest to become a mom. “After a three-year journey through hell, I’m elated, ecstatic and feel ultimately lucky to be able to announce I’m expecting my own child via surrogate in December,” Michelle said in September.
Congratulations to Michelle and family!
