Congratulations to GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Andrea Bogart (ex-Abby)! She and husband Erik Almas welcomed a beautiful baby girl on July 10 at 4:05 am! “One week ago today, Erik and I’s hearts grew a bit bigger and love expanded into places beyond our knowing as our baby girl Emerie Jane Almas blessed us with her birth,” she shared on Instagram.
Little Emerie’s arrival was a little bit earlier than expected, but only by a week or so, and everyone is doing wonderfully. “She wasn’t quite as ready as the full moon led us to believe,” Bogart admitted, “but she finally arrived as a tiny little bundle so wide-eyed and curious, ready to melt mama and daddy into a sobbing beautiful mess. We are so grateful for all the love that’s been sent our way and been home just doing amazing. We’ve never loved anything more.”
The new mom also shared a beautiful snap of her husband cradling his baby girl in his arms and expressed her gratitude to him for being such a crucial part of their child’s birth. “What a profound impact dads can play in the birthing process!” Bogart shared. “I love hearing more and more stories about how incredible men in these roles are. It’s undeniably filled with passion, love, support, and raw emotion.
“Erik, you took me to new levels of strength, courage, and acceptance,” she continued. “Emerie and I love you for every moment we share. Thank you for being a super partner and incredible dad. I always just knew.”
Emerie is just gorgeous, and we’re so happy that the entire family is happy and home together. Can’t wait to see even more beautiful baby pictures as she grows up!
GH fans will remember Bogart as Abby Haver, a friend of Sam’s who Michael fell in love with. Sadly, she was only on the soap for a year from 2010-11, and Abby met a tragic fate when she was killed off unexpectedly.
