Mary Katherine Ham Gives Birth to Daughter

By Mark Joyella 

Fox News contributor Mary Katherine Ham gave birth to a daughter, Garnet, on Saturday–named for a hike Ham and her husband took above Garnet Canyon, Wyo. “I feel confident he’d love the name and is proud of all us girls today,” Ham said in an Instagram post.

Ham’s husband, Jake Brewer, was killed in a charity bike race in September.

World, meet Garnet J. Brewer! At 7 lbs., 13 oz. & 21 in., she made her appearance after 5.5 hours of blessedly safe & awesome natural labor Nov. 28 at 5:15 am, reminding her mom this childbirth thing is no joke, hard core, & beautiful. Her middle initial is for her dad, Jake. Her first name comes from a memorable hike Jake & I did above Garnet Canyon in WY when I was 7 mos pregnant w our first. I feel confident he’d love the name and is proud of all us girls today. That’s Jake’s wonderful sister standing in as my birth coach in this pic of us a couple hours after the birth. We were home from the birth center in time for the Dawgs game! Big sis seems unfazed. Thanks for all the prayers and love. We will always miss Jake, but we know we are taken care of and so does he. Jer 29:11, Proverbs 31:25
