“Jayde made her grand entrance at 1:59pm today. She weighed 7lbs 15oz at birth,” Bookout Tweeted on Friday night, tagging boyfriend Taylor McKinney. “She is beautiful and as healthy as can be!”
Often when a new baby enteres the home, the first child can have a hard time adusjting. So how will he handle the role of big brother?
“He’s so excited for the baby,” Bookout told PEOPLE in March of her 6-year-old son. “And I’m excited for him to have a sibling. I think it will be good for him to finally have to share the spotlight.”
Bookout, now a Chattanooga State college student and full-time social-media-marketing specialist, decided have another child before she and McKinney were married, but marriage isn’t out of the question.
“We definitely want to get married and we’ve talked about it a lot,” she said in March. “But we aren’t trying to cram it all in at one time. After the baby comes and we get settled in with parenting two children, then that will definitely be our next step.”
The name of the tot was also revealed several months ago in February when Taylor McKinney, allegedly divulged both the name and the due date during a Feb. 9 interview with Talk Radio 102.3’s Brian Joyce. There was no recording of the interview, but one fan heard the news and shared the name on Twitter as “Jade.”
