Kasie Hunt Welcomes Second Baby at Home in the Bathroom
On March 3, Kasie made an Instagram post in which she shared the news of the birth of her second child. He wrote in the caption, “WELCOMING HERSELF TO THE WORLD: My husband @mattmrivera & I are thrilled to introduce our daughter, Grey Hunt Rivera—though really, she introduced herself. Grey was delivered by dad on the bathroom floor after 13 minutes of labor before we even had time to dial 911, and 24 hours before she was scheduled to arrive via C-section.”
“We are so thankful for the @dcfireandems team who talked us through the incredibly intense moments before she took her first breaths, and who arrived within minutes to bring mom and baby safely to the hospital. Big brother Mars could not be more proud, and we couldn’t be more excited for life as a family of four. Special thanks to @people for telling the world the story we’ll be telling her for the rest of our lives.”
