On November 1, actress Jenna von Oy gave birth to her second child with her husband, data consultant Brad Bratcher. Marlowe Monroe Bratcher was born at 12:35pm local time.
A representative for Von Oy told Us Magazine that “Baby and mama are both doing great. The whole family is together and very excited about the new arrival”. Although, no one’s probably more excited than Marlowe’s big sister Gray Audrey who’s now two years old. According to People, where von Oy also contributes as a blogger, Gray had a hand in picking the name for the baby.
“We began mulling over names at the beginning of my pregnancy, and came up with a few we were fond of,” the 37-year-old mother said. “When we mentioned them aloud in front of Gray, Marlowe was the name that resonated most with her. She started referring to her future baby sister by name from that point on, and it stuck!”
Brad Bratcher and Jenna von Oy got married in 2010.

It was at this reunion where von Oy announced that she was having her second child.
With this new chapter in her life, Jenna von Oy will be taking a break from writing her People.com blog, but she says she will be releasing a book very soon.
She told People magazine, “I’ll be taking a brief hiatus from my PEOPLE.com blogs for a bit, as my family and I spend some much-needed time with our new arrival. Not to worry, however, I’m in the process of writing my book, Situation Momedy, which will be released in 2015 through Medallion Press, so this isn’t the last you’ve heard of me!”
