Making it to the final four on “Dancing With the Stars” was an accomplishment Marissa Jaret Winokur will always be proud of, but now she has another that tops her primetime TV moment by leaps and bounds – she’s become a first time mother.
Marissa’s surrogate gave birth to a son on Tuesday, which the Broadway star helped deliver alongside her husband, Judah Miller, the star’s rep confirmed to Access Hollywood.
The parents named the newborn Zev Isaac Miller and the little tyke weighed in at a very healthy 8 pounds, 7 ounces.
Marissa had a surrogate carry her baby because cervical cancer forced her to remove her uterus seven years ago.
“He is so perfect,” Winokur told People. “My little miracle baby is here, and I can’t believe it.”
Having her newborn in her arms has been very touching for the star.
“One minute I’m totally fine, and the next minute I’m overwhelmed with emotion,” Winokur told People. “I can’t believe I am sitting here next to my baby. This is the one thing that’s been missing from our lives. Now our house is really going to be a home.”
