It’s a Girl! Million Dollar Listing New York’s Ryan Serhant and Emilia Bechrakis Serhant welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday February 26th. Both parents announced the babies birth simultaneously on Instagram today. Each new parent shared the news as love letters to their baby daughter. It was clearly a very long road to this baby and their joy could not be more palpable.
Your momma and I have waited almost 3 years to meet you. We had no idea how difficult getting pregnant with you was going to be. We tried everything. We were so nervous you might never come. When we finally decided to try IVF, we were so scared it wouldn’t work. And then you stuck.
And then we heard your little heartbeat for the first time. Your mom and I were so excited every time we would go to the hospital to see you, but even more terrified we would lose you. Because the fact that we were pregnant – as beautiful as it was – was almost too good to be true. And because of that fear, we loved you as hard as we could from the moment we knew you existed. We thought if we put that love for you out there, you would hear it, and you would make it.
Our Ryan is all grown up! *sniffle*
I watched you grow slowly with your momma every day, waiting for the moment I would finally meet you. I feel like I’ve spent my whole life working towards this moment, when everything would make sense.
One day when you read this, I hope you can look back and be proud. And please go and give your Mom a BIG kiss because she’s a true warrior, a fighter with the biggest heart, and the Queen of my world. Seriously – one day we will tell you about all the shots, the pain, the sickness, and what birth was like for your Mom on Tuesday the 26th – it was insane! We love you now and forever, our new, beautiful, little puff.
I have waited to exhale for months. It took a long, painful journey to meet you. From the first time we heard your heart I instantly wanted to cocoon you and protect you from the world. I talked to you every single day for 41 long weeks, begging you to ‘stick’. (Until the last two weeks I begged you to stop kicking my ribs so hard with those big feet and come out!)
I told you every day how much I love you. I rubbed my belly and cherished every single movement, as any sign that you were listening. Every night, I prayed with all my soul that you were healthy and thanked God for the miracle that you are.
Now that you’re finally here, and I get to stare into your eyes, to smell your skin, to hold you, my heart is bursting…
I can’t find the perfect words to describe how madly in love I am. I am forever grateful…my babylino, that you chose me to be your Mommy.
Awwwwww…. Congratulations to them both and welcome to the world, little one!
