It’s a girl for “Supernatural” star Mark Sheppard and his wife Sarah Louise Sheppard, an Australian mining heiress. The couple have announced the birth of their first child together — a daughter — who was born Tuesday (March 1) morning.
“Introducing Isabella Rose Sheppard,” the actor tweets. “7lb 6oz 20in. Born 3/1/16 at 2:35am. Mother and baby doing well.” Prior to the baby’s birth, Sheppard had kept his Twitter followers apprised of the situation, sharing a photo of Sarah checked into the hospital on Monday.
Sarah kept active on Twitter right up until Isabella’s birth as well, letting her followers know the possibility of the little girl being born on leap day (Feb. 29) was a distinct possibility.
The couple first met at a “Supernatural” fan convention before they began dating. They were engaged in August, before announcing they were expecting a child in September. Then, on Nov. 9, they tied the knot.
Isabella Rose is the third child for Sheppard, who has two kids with his former wife Jessica.
