Talk about keeping your life private. Keri Russell, star of “Felicity,” gave birth to a healthy baby girl on December 27th of 2011 and the news is JUST now being revealed. On January 5th, 2012, Russell’s rep. told PEOPLE, “Everyone’s happy and healthy.” Baby Willa Lou Deary is joined by big brother River who is now 4 ½.
Although the star did want a second child, Russell admits that she was nervous going into labor because of her experience with her first child. Luckily, this one timed out at less than 38 hours! In 2007 after giving birth to River, Russell said, “It was intense. It was a long time. But it all worked out okay.”
Russell met Shane Deary in 2006 through a mutual friend and has continued to defy the odds of other celebrity couples alike having been together since 06’. That year, the couple announced their engagement and on Valentine’s Day of 2007, the two tied the knot, making it official! Four months later, Russell and Deary welcomed their first child and just this past December, baby no. 2 was born.
Congratulations Keri, Shane, River, and baby Willa Lou!
