The 32-year-old former Disney Channel star announced on Instagram on Friday that she and her husband, Josiah Capaci, welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, who they named Juliet.
"Juliet Joy Capaci is here and we are over the moon in love already ???," Thornton wrote alongside a photo of herself, her husband and their baby girl at the hospital. "She was born at 2:30pm, weighed 8 pounds 5 ounces with dark curly hair and is so cute and squishy already. What a blessing it is to be entrusted by God with this precious little miracle. Thank you everyone for your prayers!! ??."
Thornton and Capaci tied the knot in October 2017. "This. This is love. That all encompassing, enduring, accepting, near perfect love," she wrote alongside photos of herself and Capaci after their wedding. "The kind that trumps my need to snap back at people who have the audacity to comment on my Instagram about whether I loved my first husband or not. But let me take a moment to explain something to you. There is no timeline for grief or for when God moves in your life in undeniable ways."
