Erika Christensen shows off her baby bump at the premiere of “The Spy Who Dumped Me” in Los Angeles on July 25, 2018.
Baby no. 2 came way faster than expected for Erika Christensen, 35!
On Friday, Aug. 10, the “Parenthood” actress welcomed a baby girl named Polly at home.
With no time to make it to the hospital, her husband, Cole Maness, stepped up to the plate to deliver their daughter all by himself.
“It happened,” Erika wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo in bed following the unplanned home birth. “It happened this morning. And it will go down in family history because babygirl’s own, incredible Dad delivered her all by himself.”
Not realizing how little time she had before the baby came, Erika did admit that she should have called for help way sooner.
“My fault entirely as I didn’t know she would come so quickly and didn’t call the doc until far too late,” she said.
It happened! It happened this morning. And it will go down in family history because babygirl’s own, incredible Dad delivered her all by himself. My fault entirely as I didnt know she would come so quickly and didn’t call the doc until far too late. He came straight over and arrived about one minute after she joined us in the world. Haha! My Mom too. You should’ve seen their faces when they walked in to hear her little wail. Mom immediately took this picture. So epic. 9:21a (we think) at 7lbs 8oz (we think). 😆 Doc didn’t have time to grab the baby scale in his rush. Meet Ms. Polly. She’s chubby-cheeked and rosy and so beautiful. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

Ironically, Polly was born just moments before the doctor finally made it to her house.
“He came straight over and arrived about one minute after she joined us in the world. Haha,” she explained of the doctor. “My Mom too. You should’ve seen their faces when they walked in to hear her little wail.”
Fortunately, mom, dad and baby made it out of what Erika called an “epic” delivery totally healthy.
“So epic,” she added. “9:21a (we think) at 7lbs 8oz (we think). Doc didn’t have time to grab the baby scale in his rush.”
The glowing mama, who also has a 2-year-old daughter named Shane, described her newborn as, “chubby-cheeked and rosy and so beautiful.”
Some #tbt action but mostly just pictures of this little person who I love so much. She was born 2 years ago, about this time of night. (Happy “birth”-day to me, too!) There’s nothing better than cracking each other up. There’s nothing more gratifying than seeing her learn. There’s kind of nothing more satisfying than getting her to eat, especially if it’s something healthy. And there’s nothing more intoxicating than a good hug when she really nestles into my neck. Also, on a non-political note, extra prompted by these feelings for Shane, let’s #keepfamiliestogether. Utterly regardless of how we got here, and who did what, with recent surge of separated families, let’s work to reunite them. If you have children you know! Link in bio. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️
