Congratulations to our beautiful cover model, Daphne Oz, on the birth of her first child! The Chew host and her husband John Jovanovic welcomed a baby girl on Wednesday, February 26. She weighed in at 6 lbs., 13 oz. and measured at 20.5 inches long.
The new mom checked in with her Chew family via Skype about a week after the arrival of her daughter. Daphne shared a few things that she's learned since becoming a mother, PLUS she announced the adorable name of her little one: Philomena Bijou Jovanovic. For short, they will call her "Philo" (like the dough) and "PBJ."
We spoke with Daphne when she was six months pregnant at our February/March cover shoot, and the mom-to-be was absolutely beaming! The daughter of Dr. Oz shared her secrets for feeling her best and making the most of every aspect of her pregnancy:
“Being pregnant has made me much more uninhibited. That’s partially because I don’t feel any need to hide my body, thanks to my growing belly… You get to just enjoy exactly where you are and soak up every minute of this crazy adventure toward parenthood.”
