Heather Tom is a mom!
The Bold and the Beautiful star and her husband James Achor have welcomed their son Zane Alexander Achor, born on October 28 weighing 8lbs, 1oz.
The actress Tweeted the happy news today, writing, “Zane Alexander Achor arrived yesterday! He was born with some fluid in his lungs so they are monitoring him- it’s been a crazy 24 hours-very stressful- but he’s doing well – as am I.”
Gushing that her baby boy is “so strong and healthy in every way,” Heather also revealed that she was able to have a natural birth: “I was able to go drug free with my labor- definitely the hardest thing I’ve ever done- I won’t lie- it hurt a lot!”
Heather has been portraying a brand new mom on the small screen as well, with her character Katie Logan’s current storyline centering around postpartum depression.
“I’ve had so many friends who have suffered from it- everything from a little baby blues to full blown depression,” the actress Tweeted in the days before Zane’s birth. “Hopefully life won’t imitate art- but at least now I do know what to be aware of!”
Congratulations to Heather and family on the new addition!
