Baby Bliss! Zoe Hendrix And Alex Garner Open Up About Their Baby And Labor Complications!

November 14, 10:35 pm was the day when Alex Garner and Zoe Hendrix got blessed with the new member of the family. The couple who got together on the set of "Married at first sight" on a Channel Nine dating show two years ago has welcomed their first baby. The little one, who just stepped in this world like a month ago with 3.37kg weight, 52cm, is named Harper-Rose.

"Married at First Sight" couple is rejoicing the feeling which could have felt earlier by the couple, but miscarriage failed their first attempt. Now, finally has got into the parenting. They described how the feeling is still not believable.

Last week Alex post were filled with the fun-filled joy, welcoming Christmas of this year which has undoubtedly cherished their life with the arrival of Harper.

Zoe shared the first photo of her baby on Instagram with a very sweet caption;

"You are too goo to be true. I could sit and stare at you for hours. You were all worth that wait my darling."

Recently speaking to A Current Affairs the couple shared their pleasant feeling, the new dad said;

“No words can really describe it. Everyone tells you it's the most amazing thing. But I can't literally put into words when your child is there and the three of us are finally together and you've gone through such a journey,”

However, the happy feeling that they are having at the moment was not that easy to get.The umbilical cord around the neck of Harper made the delivery even tougher. Plotting the scenario, going back to November 14, Alex revealed,

“In the last two hours Zoe was pushing as hard as she could, but unfortunately we had an issue where the umbilical was wrapped around the baby's head twice,"

The most awaited moment of the delivery is to hear the newborn cry but that moment took a bit longer period to come. Alex further described the frightening moment,

“We did a bit of skin time, for about 10 seconds, and still not breathing," 

He further added,

“There was no crying... [Zoe] didn't know. She was in so much pain I didn't want to tell her. She was rushed over to the little cot and it would have been a good minute [before she cried]. 12 people gushed into the room,"


SURRENDER. My labour consisted of 12 hours, 6 Midwives & 1 amazing birth partner who supported me & carried me through my pain with love, light and laughter so that I could bring our child into the world. This experience makes me love you on a whole other level. @alex_garner_ The delivery was not easy, i was not prepared (and I'm not sure we can really prepare for something like that) But I chose to surrender my fears and let my body do what it needed to do. I am in awe at what pain I was able to withstand, what our bodies can do, and even prouder that I knew my limits and was supported in my choices. After 9 hours I had the epidural and not long after our gorgeous girl was born. To all the mamas out there, I salute you for however you brought your babies into the world ???????? ? #wewomenarepowerful????? #labouroflove #marriedatfirstsight

That must have been a heart-taking moment.But nevertheless, it was all gone by after the first breath and cry of Harper.

That joyful moment Alex enthusiastically said,

“Just that first cry and that's when 'bang,' it hits you”

The most fortunate and stupendous feeling which Zoe was experiencing, she mentioned,

“Sitting here holding something so precious – that is a part of me, that is my blood – is something I’ve always dreamt of, and I will cherish it forever.”
