"On April 6th, our son McCoy Casey Bosworth was born at 3:10am," the caption for Bosworth's post initially began. "Weighing in at 11 pounds and 4 ounces and spanning 21 inches, McCoy surprised us all with his size and strength (and overall perfection). During the course of his birth, he experienced shoulder dystocia and a compressed umbilical cord. He joined our Heavenly Father and will live forever in the hearts of his loving parents, his adoring sister, and those that received his life-saving gifts."


Bosworth previously announced that she was pregnant with her second child back in November. She and her husband, Kyle Bosworth, are also parents to a daughter named Decker, 4. At the time, she wrote a blog post entitled "How do I say this?" in order to tell her fans about the news. In her post, she noted that her daughter was so excited to have a little sibling.

"She has graciously offered to change your diapers and give you baths and she's very excited to find out if 'Jesus picked a baby brother or a baby sister for us,'" Bosworth wrote in a note to McCoy before he was born. "I intentionally waited for the right time to bring you into our family for a reason, I just had no idea my reason would be this freaking excited. It's really damn cool. We love you like crazy already, baby."
