‘awkward. ’ star nikki deloach gives birth to baby boy

Today we have TWO reasons to celebrate: Not only does “Awkward” make its Season 3 return to MTV at 10:30e/7:30p, but the actress who plays Jenna Hamilton’s mom, Lacey, gave birth to her very own bundle of joy! At 3:19 this morning, Nikki Deloach brought little William Hudson Goodell — her first child with husband Ryan Goodell — into the world. Nikki, your timing is impeccable!

Baby Hudson, as he’ll be called, weighed in at 6 pounds, 5 ounces. A rep for the couple told Us Weekly that “Mom and baby are doing well, and the new parents are overjoyed at the arrival of their first child.” We couldn’t be happier for them, either! When we recently spoke with Nikki about her pregnancy, she was bursting at the seams with excitement (and a baby). “I didn’t even realize I had the capacity to love something so much,” she told us. “I can only imagine how much bigger that’s going to get when I see his little face.” Hudson’s little face has yet to make its Twitter debut, but it’s only a matter of time before the proud mama shares pics with her admirers. We’re looking forward it!
