Congratulations are in order for All My Children alum Denise Vasi (ex-Randi Hubbard) and her husband, Anthony Mandler: the pair welcomed a baby boy in June.
The actress took to Instagram this week to announce the exciting news, sharing that they've named the healthy, 8 lb., 8oz. baby boy Dries Layne Mandler.
"I labored for one incredibly intense hour, [our daughter] Lennox Mae was front and center, and hubby caught his son fully supported by our loving birth team," Vasi wrote along with a photo of her newborn son. "Our home birth was fast and furious but absolutely magical. We've spent the last two weeks (mostly in bed) falling in love with baby. He's beyond perfect!!"

On June 28th we welcomed our beautiful, healthy 8lb 8oz baby boy, Dries Layne Mandler into the world. He was born 12 days past his estimated due date (just like 👸). I labored for one incredibly intense hour, Lennox Mae was front and center, and hubby caught his son fully supported by our loving birth team. Our home birth was fast and furious but absolutely magical. We've spent the last two weeks (mostly in bed) falling in love with baby 🐬 He's beyond perfect!! Thank you for picking our family Dries-you are so deeply loved. Mama, Papa and Big Sissy promise to always be there for you. To guide you, protect you and support you for all time. @anthonymandler, another one for the books! Once again, we did it our way! I love you, Papa! Thank you Instafam for riding along and holding our family in your 💙💖s. Love y'all xxDV #drieslaynemandler #vasimandlerbaby2 #homebirth #birthwithoutfear #miv
Shortly after Vasi posted the photo of baby Dries, Mandler gave his wife praise for courageously bringing another human into the world.
"You truly are a force of nature and carry a spirit that I've never seen matched especially in THE moment. In both of our children that flame burns bright," he wrote. "I am in awe @denisevasi because every bit of doubt or fear is always followed by an act of love, kindness, and heart."
Vasi, who played AMC's Randi from 2008 to 2011, announced news of her pregnancy just before Christmas last year. Check out her cute pregnancy announcement video below, and don't forget to leave a congratulatory message for the actress in the Comments section underneath!
