Loren and Alexei Brovarnik welcome second son
On Monday, August 16, Loren gave birth via C-section to the couple’s second child, whom they’re referring to as “Babyboten,” a Hebrew nickname that means baby peanut.
Baby Brovarnik decided to enter the world before his scheduled due date, as the couple explained in their statement.
“Babyboten wanted to come into this world earlier than expected and on his own terms. He was a C-section baby, weighing a whopping 5 pounds, 7 ounces, and [measuring] 19 inches tall. We are so excited for this new chapter as a family of four!” Loren and Alexei added.
Loren also shared a post on her Instagram account, sharing several pics from the hospital. One pic showed Loren lying on the operating table awaiting her C-section surgery.
Alexei posed in his head-to-toe scrubs for another fun pic and smiled next to their son’s bed in the NICU in another shot. Loren held baby Brovarnik and she and Alexei posed for another pic next to their son’s incubator.
