Daphne Oz Gives Birth to Second Baby!
The Chew co-host, author and healthy living expert Daphne Oz gave birth to a baby boy.
Her son joins the family alongside older sis Philomena Bijou, who was born in March 2014. The TV host announced her second pregnancy in a sweet segment on The Chew, to the total delight of her co-hosts. Her dad, Mehmet Oz, MD, was given the honors of announcing the happy news on Instagram this morning.
“Earlier today, @daphneoz blessed us with a beautiful grandson! @lisaoz and I couldn’t be happier,” he captioned the photo. “Philo wants to know what all the commotion is about - I think she’s realizing that her lifelong best friend was just born. We thank you all for your well-wishes and prayers.”
Not surprisingly, the TV host was all about staying healthy during pregnancy, but doesn’t worry about shedding the postbaby pounds as much as you’d think. Instead, after giving birth to Philomena, she explained to The Bump that it’s “one of many” priorities that she has to balance as a new mom.
Another balance she and her husband John Jovanovic will have to find as parents: getting a little alone time! Oz revealed in an interview that “even if it’s a 15-minute meal together, relishing uninterrupted time keeps us connected.” (With the birth of baby no. 2, they just may have to knock that meal down to 10 minutes.)
Congratulations to the family!
