Nearly one month after Jack Osbourne’s fourth daughter arrived, his fiancée, Aree Gearhart, described their decision to “preserve” the baby’s umbilical cord.
With the help of California-based company Mommy Made Encapsulation, the cord has been shaped “into a heart” and painted gold so that Osbourne, 36, and Gearhart, 31, can “keep it forever,” the interior designer wrote on her Instagram Stories Thursday.
“one of the best choices i’ve made for my postpartum health was to encapsulate my placenta,” she explained.
“taking my placenta has helped me lose pregnancy weight, helped w [sic] postpartum depression, boosted my milk supply significantly, and reduced postpartum bleeding.”
Gearhart announced last month that she gave birth to her “soulmate,” a daughter named Maple.
“New level of love unlocked,” Gearhart told her Instagram followers on July 27. “Came to us earth side on July 9, 2022 at 8:07pm.”
The “Osbournes” alum, for his part, wrote that the newborn and his partner were “doing great and happy and healthy.”
The couple, who got engaged in December 2021, announced in March that they were expecting their first child together.
“Exciting news!” Osbourne wrote via Instagram at the time. “@seecreature and I are expecting a baby in the summer! Baby #4 here we come!”
The former reality star previously welcomed daughters Pearl, 10, Andy, 7, and Minnie, 4, with his ex-wife, Lisa Stelly, prior to their 2018 divorce.
Grandma Sharon Osbourne revealed in a July appearance on “TalkTV” that the little ones chose their half-sister’s name.
The former “The Talk” co-host is expecting another grandchild, as her daughter Kelly Osbourne is pregnant.
“I know that I have been very quiet these past few months so I thought I would share with you all as to why,” the “Project Runway Junior” judge, 37, wrote alongside ultrasound photos in May.
“I am over the moon to announce that I am going to be a Mumma,” Kelly continued. “To say that I am happy does not quite cut it. I am ecstatic!”
