“We are overjoyed to welcome Caden Robert Katrosar into the world. Everyone is healthy and doing well, we’re so grateful for all the love and well wishes along our journey to get here. We’re awestruck by this little man and can’t believe he’s ours,” the happy parents shared with the magazine.
Little Caden weighed in at 7 pounds and 7 ounces and was 20 inches long. The happy parents expressed their gratitude to all the doctors and nurses at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles.
Melissa also cracked a joke about the dramatic on-screen births she’s had during her time on the CBS daytime drama.
“Although this is my first child in real life, I’ve had very dramatic on-screen births on The Young and the Restless. Once after falling through a lake, I delivered my son on the show in a cabin. The other time, I went into labor at my wedding and delivered a baby right there in my wedding dress. So, this was a breeze compared to that!” she expressed.
