  • "Mommy and baby are doing well and Daddy is in pure bliss," a rep told "People."

  • Little Henley is a rainbow baby, being born just one year after the loss of the couple's first child, Johnathan Edward, at 4 months' gestation:

    In a heartbreaking Instagram post from last October, Otis -- who lost baby Johnathan in July 2016 -- wrote:

    "October is pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. I can't sleep well tonight so I blogged about my sweet boy, Johnathan Edward. I realize there is a great stigma associated with sharing photos of your baby who was born too early and has already gone to heaven so I want to say sorry if this offends you. However, if there's one thing my husband has taught me it's this: 'Don't live life trying NOT to offend anyone and trying to please everyone.' I hope by me sharing my sweet boy, Johnny (as Doug and I call him), you'll realize that he's a harmless, helpless baby who deserves to be remembered, not hidden away because his image may offend someone. And if you've lost your baby early, please know that you're not alone. Unfortunately, 1 in 4 women are affected by this. Yet, no one talks about it. I hope this can change. I'll be the first in my circle. You be the first in yours. My prayers go out to everyone who has lost their sweet baby too early."

  • The couple has done their best to keep baby Johnny's memory alive by including him in the celebration of their new bundle of joy.

    In a blog post, Otis wrote:

    "When I first became pregnant I was so elated (we had been trying since the loss of our first born son, Johnathan, at 17 weeks). After months of trying we finally saw 'pregnant' and two lines confirming I'm pregnant (on multiple different tests because one wasn't enough!).

    "I immediately wanted to shout out loud to anyone who would listen 'I'm going to be a mommy!' I've been dreaming of becoming a mommy for as long as I can remember."

  • Congrats to the family -- we wish them all the best!
