Marissa Jaret Winokur and her husband, King of the Hill writer Judah Miller, have welcomed their first child, Entertainment Tonight confirms.
Zev Isaac Miller, born via surrogate, weighed in at 8 pounds, 7 ounces.
The baby was born Tuesday.
Winokur, who survived cervical cancer seven years ago, competed on the past season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars but was eliminated during week 10. She tracked her progress with a diary on Usmagazine.com.
“Since I have a baby on the way this summer, I wonÃ¢â¬â¢t be able to join the tour Ã¢â¬â you canÃ¢â¬â¢t be on tour with a baby!” Winokur, 35, wrote in her final entry.
“So my poor son will just have to watch all those videos and I can say ‘This is what I was doing while you were cooking!Ã¢â¬â¢Ã¢â¬Â
Of motherhood, Winokur, who won a Tony award for her role in Broadway’s Hairspray, blogged: “The baby is going to change my life, and I will be a bit more ready because I canÃ¢â¬â¢t really control everything that is what I have learned here. So I am looking forward to learning more.”
