When Calls the Heart star Andrea Brooks gave birth to Baby No. 2 over the weekend. The actress posted a photo of herself on Instagram holding her child and smiling.
“Perfection,” wrote her When Calls the Heart co-star Pascale Hutton in the comments. “Congratulations mama!!!”
“So happy for you guys!!!” wrote Erin Krakow.
Brooks announced in November that she and her husband, Riley Graydon, were expecting their second child.
“At this point, I feel like I could almost write a book on how to hide a pregnancy on television,” Brooks said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “This is the second time I’ve shot a season of When Calls the Heart while pregnant — the last time was Season 7 — and I am forever grateful to Hallmark Channel, our writers, showrunner, directors and producers, for all of their continued support!”
Baby No. 2
Brooks and Graydon revealed to ET Online that their son is named Levon, which is the title of Brooks’ favorite Elton John song. He was 10 lbs. 6 oz at birth. Both mother and baby are doing well.
This is the second child for the couple. In 2019, Brooks gave birth to their daughter, Viola.
In a November interview, Brooks said she had a list of possible names for Baby No. 2 in mind but that it was constantly changing.
“Viola, on the other hand, has already named the baby!” she said. “If we’re not careful I’m afraid she might sign the birth certificate on our behalf.”
The When Calls the Heart Family
In a recent interview, Brooks, who plays Dr. Faith Carter on the hit Hallmark series, said her When Calls the Heart co-workers have been incredibly supportive of her pregnancies.
“The major benefit of being a part of a show that’s been on-air for nearly a decade is the tight-knit community we’ve formed as a cast and crew,” Brooks said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “It’s been so exciting to see so many people from our show grow up, get engaged, get married, and start families. We also have a LOT of parents on our show. I’ve had so many meaningful conversations on set about preschool, babies, parenting, and balancing it all. Pascale Hutton is always able to answer any question I have about raising kids and I’m always so appreciative of her advice. Also, the costume department left me an adorable crochet baby hat in my trailer the other day.”
