Danielle Fishel welcomes baby boy one month early
“Boy Meets World” alum Danielle Fishel welcomed her first child last week, one month before her due date.
“One week ago today, on 6/24 at 4:52am, Adler Lawrence Karp made his entrance into the world, 4 weeks early,” she shared on Instagram. “My water broke on 6/20, one day before my work week directing at Raven’s Home ended and my maternity leave began. I was hospitalized that night and put on magnesium sulfate because Adler was only 35 weeks old. Unfortunately, after doing an ultrasound, our amazing OB discovered fluid in his lungs that was not there during our last appointment only 10 days earlier – and thus we entered a nightmare we’ll never forget.”
People reported that Adler’s middle name is an homage to her husband Jensen Karp’s father who died 11 years ago — and is coincidentally the last name of her “Boy Meet World” character.
“We still don’t have Adler home with us because the deeply good doctors and nurses in the NICU are working diligently to find out why the fluid is there and determine the best way to get it out. This has been the most trying week and a half of mine and [Karp]’s lives but we have gotten through it with the support of our incredible family and friends who have shown up for us in unexpected ways. Jensen and I have also become closer than we ever thought possible and the love between us has grown exponentially as we have leaned on each other during both our highest highs and our lowest lows. We feel helpless and powerless and useless and we wanted so badly to follow our ‘birth plan,’ unsurprisingly none of which involved leaving our beautiful baby boy at the hospital for the first weeks of his life.”
It’s unclear when she will bring her bundle of joy home, but she shared: “he hates having a poopy diaper for even 1 minute, he loves bath time [and] he has the cutest sneezes I’ve ever heard”
Fishel, 38, married Karp, 39, in November 2018 and announced in January that they were expecting a baby boy.
Karp shared his own sentimental post, but also joked: He has so much hair. It’s ridiculous. He looks like if Nosferatu was a newscaster. Or a Goth Marv Albert.”
