Something is flying around the NASCAR tracks these days, and it isn’t race cars!

Family drama is the fare on Sarah Jane Morris‘ regular gig, the ABC show Brothers and Sisters, but Sarah’s been adding a little drama to her own family! Emmett Andrew Brower was born January 24th after 15 hours of natural labor. Emmett is the first child for Morris and her husband, Ned Brower, who’s the drummer for Rooney. According to the proud papa’s Facebook post, Emmett weighed in at 8.2 pounds.

Josie Duggar Is the Star of the Show

She may be a tiny thing — she weighed only 1 pound, 6 ounces at birth — but Josie Brooklyn Duggar is already the star of the show. The newest Duggar arrived December 10th, more than three months earlier than her scheduled due date. Her short life has already been eventful: when she was only eight days old, she was moved to Arkansas Children’s Hospital’s intensive care unit after she perforated her bowel. As that facility doesn’t allow children younger than 18 years in the ICU, most of the other 18 Duggar children have been checking in via video taken on dad Jim Bob Duggar‘s phone.
