Jessica Capshaw Gives Birth to Baby #3

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy star Jessica Capshaw and husband Christopher Gavigan welcomed their third child this week. She gave birth to daughter Poppy James Gavigan, on Wednesday, June 20, her rep confirms.

“Our hearts are just bursting with love and gratitude upon the arrival of our baby girl,” the couple said.

Poppy, their second girl, joins elder siblings Eve Augusta, 20 months, and Luke Hudson, 4½. Amazingly, pregnancies two and three were never written into her character Arizona's storylines.

“I don’t really think about what the challenges are going to be,” the stepdaughter of Steven Spielberg said of raising three children going forward. “For me, it’s not about the challenges."

"All I keep thinking about is how lucky we are. For some reason, even with the third one, it really never, ever is lost on me that every single baby is truly a miracle.”

Well said, to say the least. Congratulations to the whole family and we look forward to seeing Jessica back on screen in September in Grey's Anatomy Season 9.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Meredith: You're me.
Amelia: What?
Meredith: You're me before Derek. I can be here for you. I can do this. I get you. I can be a twisted sister for you. Just tell me how do you want to play this?

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
