Jamie Otis Reveals What Her Baby Girl's Name Might Be, and We Love It!
Pregnant reality star Jamie Otis and her husband Doug Hehner, whom she met and married on the show Married at First Sight, may have just found out they were expecting for a second time, but they already have a baby name in mind—and it stems, oddly enough, from a misunderstanding.
You may remember how Otis and Hehner famously shared their first painful pregnancy loss on social media. First, they posted an emotional image of their son Johnathan Edward, who was born too early to survive, to Instagram. The heartbroken mama also honored her angel baby boy on the photo-sharing site on what would have been his due date
Recently, she and Hehner announced they were expecting again!
And now, Otis has dropped a major hint about what their rainbow baby could be named.
The mom-to-be talked to People about the significance of the moniker Henley, recalling how the morning after they met and wed, she mistakenly thought it was her new husband's last name. "After we fell in love, we would laugh about it all the time. He'd always pick on me that he knew my whole name, but I couldn't remember his."
Well, I for one love this unique name for either a boy or a girl!
Meanwhile, Otis also expanded upon why she chose to share her pregnancy news so early this time, saying, "I had announced [my first pregnancy], and then about a week or two later I lost my baby, so I was so fortunate to have that kind of support. But I still felt lonely. To these women who don't announce it until 12, 13 weeks 'cause then it's 'the safest' ...if they suffer a loss, it's so lonely."
