Sharing a photo of Naomi holding their little one while lying in a hospital bed, Jordan said: "So yesterday 23.7.2019 at 3.24pm weighing 8 pound 9, our little angel was born! @naomiella21 I cannot put into words the depth of love and respect I have for you, I can never repay the gifts you've brought into our lives with our 2 beautiful children. This time the process was so different than it was with Cass but you were so strong and amazing, thank you."
