Married at First Sight alums Deonna and Greg are officially parents! Their dog, Sandy is no longer their only baby! Declan Okotie made his debut over the weekend. Deonna announced the birth via Instagram with photos of her newborn. Captioning the photo, “Over the weekend our little bundle of joy entered the world after a long 36hrs of labor! Say hello to Declan Okotie aka Baby O. We love him so much already! Thank you for all the well wishes and blessings. Everyone is doing great and getting adjusted to our new normal. Sandy ABSOLUTELY loves her brother.”
Deonna and Greg’s Parenting Journey
Deonna and Greg are thrilled with their growing family. “We are so blessed and excited to welcome our baby boy, Declan, into the world,” the couple shared exclusively with E! News. “We’re all healthy and doing well, just happy to be home as a family of three!”
Declan Okotie was born on February 27 at 8:44 p.m local time. Weighing 6 lbs., 9 oz., at birth. The journey has been a long one for the happy couple. They revealed their pregnancy back in September. And most recently had their gender reveal.
Last month McNeill and Okotie opened up about what kind of parents they thought they would be with their baby boy. “I think Greg is going to be a great dad on an account of how he takes care of those around him. He’s very caring, has a huge heart and he really puts it out there on his sleeve,” said Deonna. Greg added, “Deonna is very nurturing. She’s been a mother to everybody in her life – me included.”
Meanwhile, the new parents have already shared that they will be limiting their son’s exposure to the public once he is born. Acknowledging that while they have chosen to live their life in the spotlight, their son has not. “We definitely don’t want a lot of pictures out there or videos out there especially in the beginning,” Greg previously shared with E! News. “We want to limit his or her’s exposure to social media.”
