"Real Housewives of New York City" star Bethenny Frankel gave birth to daughter Bryn Hoppy on May 8, People magazine reports.
Bryn was born at 8 a.m. in New York City, weighing 4 pounds, 12 ounces, according to Frankel's rep. She is the first child for Frankel and husband Jason Hoppy, who wed March 28.
On her Twitter page, the new mom writes: "I can't express how happy I am&how beautiful,supportive&thoughtful u all are.Bryn is a tiny beautiful peanut.new chapter begins.thank you."
Of course, with the "Housewives" involved, even childbirth wasn't without drama.
On May 7, Frankel's "frenemy" Jill Zarin posted this premature, erroneous message on Facebook: "Heard Bethenny had a baby boy ... so happy for her and son. So happy for them," the New York Daily News reports.
Hundreds of commenters criticized Zarin for her blunder, so she posted an apology on Facebook: "Yesterday [my daughter] read a tweet and blog that Bethenny gave birth. We were excited and congratulated her obviously prematurely. I should have waited until B announced it herself. Sorry."
Sounds like season two fodder for Frankel's new Bravo reality show, "Bethenny Getting Married?," which premieres on June 10.
