I'm a Dad!!!

Well last week I was asking for your help on my show by calling to tell me your tricks and tips on how to induce labour! We didn’t get any KFC, didn’t try the castor oil or spicy food, our little girl was ready to come meet us just after I left our last “By Invite Only.” I called my wife Sam and she told me she’d been having contractions for an hour or two, but they were pretty far apart. We finally went to the hospital around 4 in the morning and at 11:48 pm Thursday night, we got to meet our Daughter.  Peyton Avery Reynolds was born 7 pounds 15 ounces and 21 inches long…she’s got lots of hair…just like Dad!

Thank you so much for all the kind words today during my show and on Facebook and Instagram.  In case you’re wondering…where did you get the name from? Well…my favourite football player of all time is Peyton Manning! And my wife loved it when I brought it up…I wonder if my daughter will love it once she’s old enough to ask where she got her name.

My wife was in labour for 27 hours before we finally got to meety Peyton. She did amazing, I was so incredibly proud of her strength.  After what I thought was a long labour, I wanted to know from you today how long your labour was!

I can’t say enough amazing things about all the nurses and staff that took care of the 3 of us at the Grey Nuns…everyone is home and happy and healthy, I feel like the luckiest guy in the world.
