It’s a family of three for General Hospital actress Teresa Castillo! The 30-year-old recently welcomed her first child with husband Shane Aaron a few days ago — all 7 lbs. and 2 oz. of her! — and happily announced the news on June 3. So what’s this little bundle of joy’s name?
“My husband and I are happy to announce the arrival of our baby girl, Victoria Milani,” the proud momma shared on Twitter. “She was born on May 29th. We are in LOVE.” We’re glad the couple finally picked out a name for their latest addition (they previously couldn’t decide on one), and it turns out they looked pretty far for inspiration! Victoria’s middle name actually pays homage to her dad’s Hawaiian roots. How sweet!
Teresa also opened up about Victoria to People, and it’s pretty obvious the new mother still has that post-baby glow. “We are completely overjoyed to finally have our little girl in our arms,” she says.
As for Victoria’s birth, this little girl was slated to arrive on May 24, but it seems like she had her own agenda. But no matter, both mom and dad didn’t mind the wait. “It was completely surreal. I couldn’t believe that this was the little person living in my belly for nine months,” Teresa gushes. “She was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen.”
Aside from being a great labor coach for Teresa during delivery, Shane is already a pro at being a doting father. “Shane was by my side through the whole thing — cheering me on, taking care of me,” Teresa reveals. “He has been the most amazing husband through the whole pregnancy, labor and delivery, and is already a great dad.”
We’re so happy to hear the family of three are getting along just perfectly. As for their next plans? Mom and Dad are looking forward to “spending the summer loving our little girl.”
Congratulations to the new parents!
