(WEAR) - Christina Leavenworth and her husband Milan are new parents to a beautiful baby girl.

McKenna Claire was born Wednesday, August 17th at 5:11 p.m. in Pensacola after 15 hours of labor.

She came into the world at 8 lbs. 2 oz., and 21 inches long.

Both mother and baby are doing well.

McKenna is named after two of Christina's grandparents who have passed away.

Being parents to a baby girl was a surprise to Christina and Milan, who chose to wait until birth to learn the gender.

Their journey to becoming first-time parents was documented in Kathryn Daniel's Three in the Morning series, "Christina's Baby Journey."

It was during that time she met birth photographer Natalie Zepp, who was there to capture McKenna's arrival.

She also invited viewers along as she learned about everything from maternity shopping, putting together a birth plan, and bringing a baby into a home with pets.

Channel 3 News wishes Christina a quick recovery, and a big congratulations to the new parents.
