The summer is off to a perfect start for Ingo Rademacher (Jasper "Jax" Jacks, General Hospital), who is thrilled to announce the birth of his third child, a girl that he and his wife, Ehiku, have named Iwa (pronounced Eva) Lehua.
The actor took to Instagram with several adorable photos of his new baby girl, who was born at home in the early morning hours of Saturday, June 5. "We're all super tired but Baby and Mom are doing awesome," Rademacher writes. "Another successful Home-birth.... my wife @ehiku is an absolute champion."
The actor also shares that Iwa has "a much longer middle Hawaiian name that tells her story," but he didn't share any additional info, so we'll all have to wait for that eventual story when it comes!
As Soap Central previously reported, Rademacher kept the sex of his baby a secret when he announced Ehiku's pregnancy news back in February. However, the actor's GH costar Marcus Coloma (Nikolas Cassadine) must have had a feeling a baby girl was on the way because he shared a few words of wisdom with Rademacher about having one: "In my experience, daughters give you all the advice you need," he wrote. "Just the absolute best, enjoy every moment. You know how fast it goes!"
Baby Iwa joins big brothers Peanut Kai, who was born in 2008, and Pohaku Zen, born in 2012.
Ingo Rademacher has been playing GH's Jax on-again, off-again since 1996. He also briefly played the role of The Bold and the Beautiful's Thorne Forrester from 2017 to 2018.
