Their son Anthony now has a baby sister, as Jenna gave birth to a girl just a few days after Christmas Day.

“On December 27th 2022 at 5:47 AM, we would like to welcome Liliana Marie,” Jenna wrote in an Instagram post’s caption announcing their baby girl’s arrival.

She also included their baby’s birth details: “Weighing: 7 Pounds 4 Oz” and “Length: 20.28 Inches.”

The Instagram post also featured five photos, with Liliana as the main star and Zach and Jenna making a cameo appearance.

It brought many Challengers into the comment section to express well wishes toward their friends and castmates.

“I am honestly looking forward to dressing her up in the most obnoxious bows and outfits,” Compono told E! News after Liliana’s birth. “I am also excited to have a mini me and as she gets older, we can do girl things.”

Zach also took to Instagram to show off Liliana, sharing a black-and-white image of himself at the hospital as he held his baby girl.
