Maddie Marlow and her husband, Jonah Font, welcomed their first baby. The baby boy, Forrest Henry Font, was born on September 9, 2023, weighing 7 pounds and 10 ounces. It’s the first baby for the happy couple, who married in November of 2019.
The new mom posted a beautiful photo of her new boy on Instagram, as well as a photograph with the new dad holding the baby and a photo of herself sleeping next to the baby. She wrote, “After 37 hard hours of labor, finally getting to push, and ending up having an emergency c-section and being put under, Forrest Henry Font made his debut. Thank you to our incredible medical team at St. Thomas Midtown for taking incredible care of us and making a really scary experience as calm and comfortable as possible for our little family. Forrest is everything Jonah and I could’ve ever dreamed of, and we’d go through it all over again for him.”
She closed with, “Thank you, Lord, for the gift of this perfect boy and this magical time. We are so in love.”
Many fans responded to the post, including one who wrote, “Welcome baby Forrest!!! A perfect angel!!!!” Another fan commented, “Congratulations y’all! I’m so glad both you and baby boy made it safe and sound. He is precious!!!” Country music mom of two Gabby Barrett reacted, saying, “Yayyyyy! Congrats, Mama!”
The couple announced they were expecting their first baby back in April. Font and her husband talked with People magazine about the news. Maddie said, “We found out in early January that we were expecting. I surprised Jonah with a little card and the positive tests once he came home from work.”
Font continued, “We are so excited to become parents! We’ve always wanted babies, so it is surreal that this chapter is beginning for us. We feel so grateful that God chose us to be this sweet little boy’s parents!”
She added of Taylor Dye, who is mother to daughter Leighton Grace, “Oddly enough, my duo partner, Tae, had a feeling I was pregnant before I even knew!”
