The Real Housewives of New York City’s Bethenny Frankel gave birth to a healthy baby girl early Saturday, about a month before her June due date, a rep for the reality star has confirmed.
“Bethenny and [husband] Jason [Hoppy] are proud to welcome their new baby girl, Bryn Hoppy, born at 8 AM on Saturday, May 8th, in New York City. She is a 4 lbs 12 ounces healthy baby.”
Both Bryn and her parents are doing well, however, the tot’s arrival didn’t come without some drama. Bethenny’s former bestie Jill Zarin was promptly criticized in a blitz of biting Facebook comments after she tried to get in on the baby news — and got it wrong.
In a Facebook status update posted this morning, Jill wrote: “Heard Bethenny had a baby boy… so happy for her and Jason. So happy for them.”
The blurp drew a flurry of comments from angry Bethenny supporters — accusing Zarin of trying to steal her frenemy’s thunder. Jill later deleted the comment.
