Rachel explains the difference between movie births and the real thing and how excited she was to take Skyler home.
Posted by Rachel Zoeon Oct 18, 20110
Finally, the big day was here. My water brokes in the middle of the night -- and, as Rodger, likes to describe it, the waiting game began. At the hospital, my room was full with family, friends, and team Zoe members, it was so incredible having them all there –- it definitely helped to put my mind at ease. If I took anything away from the entire birthing experience it was: don't believe what you see in the movies! There was no screaming, no barreling gurneys -- everyone was calm, there was a lot of waiting, a lot of visiting, and a lot of love. I could not wait to bring Skyler home with me! Leaving the hospital that day I knew my life would be forever changed -- I knew I would love and worry for this little boy for the rest of my life.
I watched the entire season through in one day of reruns, and found the new home and baby very interesting. But the show teased the Oscars and Ann Hathaway's many outfit changes and we didn't even get to see her. For that matter, not one show actually depicted a real life star being styled. What gives? This was like a soap, not a fashion show, this season.
SENDING you an abundance of joy and happiness and congratulations on your beautiful little boy..He is adorable. May God bless him and continue to bless you and Rodger. Love love love the show..love love love your new line and love love love YOU (ITS BA NA N AS LOL). Your show is such a delight you make my week...and I definetly think Skyler should have a sister...just saying. When you make such beautiful babies why not?? You are a remarkable woman Rachel and I know you will give Skyler a beautiful life MAZEL xoxoxoxo
I watch your program because it depicts the most material aspect of how a life can be lived. I'm fascinated with the way you and Rodger think "things" will make you happy, and how you can't have too much. Rodger fires Jeremiah because of his concern over the bottom line, but then turns around and buys a very expensive ring for Rachael. That's about as shallow and obvious as you can get. Apparantly you both think that you really can take it with you. Pretty sad, but I'll keep watching for that moment when you realize you should be sharing some of your wealth (try 10%) with the less fortunate.
You look so much more vibrant and healthy since you had that baby! I cannot believe the difference. I kept postponing motherhood, not realizing how fast my clock was ticking, and I had 2 babies in my 30's and have never looked back. It's the best thing I ever did in my life! Enjoy every minute because they grow up SO fast!
Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy!! I thought he looked just like you when you were putting him in his car seat. I truly am happy for you.
But why no mention in your blog appreciating Jeremiah running to your house to get it ready for the baby, after the awful way your husband treated him...just saying
No thank you or shout out to Jeremiah for swooping in and fixing up your baby's room? I have been a devoted superfan since the first episode of this show. I have admired you so much and bought scads of your clothes on QVC. But I have to admit I'm realy disappointed in how self absorbed you appear to be now. Don't let your success go to your head Rachel. It could disappear in an intsant.
Your treatment of Jeremiah has been less than admirable and you owe him a commendation in your blog.
I must say I did shed a tear last night watching the happiness and love surrounding the birth of your baby boy. My son is 13 and he is still my baby boy and always will be...I'm so happy for the two of you! I think you'll always have your passion for fashion, but you'll learn quickly there is nothing like the love of a child. Your heart will grow everyday with love for him. You have a wonderful life! Enjoy it and quit working so hard.
Mazel, Rachel! You will make an absolutely amazing mother, and you could not have picked a more wonderful husband and father. May you have the most loving and glorious family, full of health and happiness!
CONGRATULATIONS to you and Rodger! You will be the best parents. How fortunate for little Skylar to have parents that wanted him so badly. Your life will be forever changed in the best way possible. Enjoy every minute, he will grow up so fast!
Rachel - please stop saying Jesus Christ. I turn the show off - and I love it - every time you say it. Last night I could not see the baby because Roger, who I believe is Jewish said "Christ". Please respect christians, at least on a TV show. Thank you.
Rachel, love you, love the show and congratulations to you and Roger. I must say though, your window of opportunity for acknowledging what Jeremiah did for Skyler's room is all too short. Do the right thing. He is owed a huge and public thank you for everything he did for your family. I hope there is more to this than we are seeing.

Congratulations on a thankfully uneventful birth and healthy baby boy. He will really let you know shortly, what a real busy day entails!!! My grandson, Lucas, is nearing two and I do not need a personal trainer after watching him a few times, or should I say laps.
You will enjoy this ride. The best one in your life.
