It's not even a full month into 2019, and former The Young and the Restless star Tammin Sursok (ex-Colleen Carlton) is already having the best year ever. And it's all due to the birth of her second child.
After previously revealing that her pregnancy had been "a bumpy, emotional and magical journey", the actress is thrilled to announce that she has given birth to a healthy baby girl.
"She's here, and she's perfect!" Sursok shared on Instagram of the brand-new daughter she shares with husband Sean McEwen.
Sursok opened up in a recent interview about the pregnancy, revealing that she suffered back-to-back miscarriages between the pregnancies with her daughter Phoenix, 5, and her new baby girl.
Sursok said that she experienced "sadness and depression" after the miscarriages but decided to open up about the pain in an effort to help other women.
"It took me a long time to share it," the Y&R and Pretty Little Liars alum said in an episode of Dr. Berlin's Informed Pregnancy podcast. "[But] if I can make one person feel less alone ... because it happens so much, I think it's 1 in 4 [women]."
In November, the expectant mom shared that the baby was a girl and posted a video that showed her and McEwen's reaction to the gender reveal news. As seen in the clip below, the actress couldn't believe the news and kept jumping up and down in joy, while her husband joked about how he's going to be outnumbered by all the girls in the house (even though he was clearly also thrilled by the news).
The proud parents have yet to share what they've named their new baby, who joins their first daughter, five-year-old Phoenix.
Sursok got her start on the Australian soap opera Home and Away and later took on the role of Y&R's Colleen, which she played from 2007 to 2009. After leaving the CBS series, she went on to star in Hannah Montana, Aussie Girl, and the primetime soap opera Pretty Little Liars.
