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.
