The holidays were made all the more joyous for Marnie Schulenburg (ex-Alison Stewart, As the World Turns/The Young and the Restless) and her husband, Zach Robidas, by the arrival of their new daughter, who was born earlier this month.
Schulenburg took to social media with her exciting baby news, which she announced via a cheeky "birth" version of the holiday tune The 12 Days of Christmas. She also wrote, "It's been one week since Coda Jones came into our lives and it's as if she always was. The things I stressed about a week ago seem so inconsequential now. Sleep is irrelevant, my autonomy is on hold and I am the happiest and luckiest wife and mother in the world."

" On the Twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me Twelve hours of labor Eleven more at home Ten back massages Nine cups of water Eight " You have got this" Seven " Keep on breathing" Six " Where's the Nitris?" Five different baths Four stress balls Three essential oils A two degree tear, and The best damn baby in the world." It's been one week since Coda Jones came into our lives and it's as if she always was. The things I stressed about a week ago seem so inconsequential now. Sleep is irrelevant, my autonomy is on hold and I am the happiest and luckiest wife and mother in the world.
