Sarah Drew will probably be having a few mom’s nights in for a couple of weeks, as she and husband Peter Lanfer get used to life with a new baby again! The couple have welcomed their second baby and first daughter: Hannah Mali Rose arrived 3.5 weeks early on December 3rd. The Moms’ Night In star took to Twitter to share her happy news and explain the thoughts that went into choosing Hannah’s name:, “I’ve always loved the name ‘Hannah’. It means ‘grace’ or ‘favor’ and Hannah was also a Biblical figure who had tremendous faith in God.”
“There is a beautiful red bird named the Mali Firefinch for our redheaded early bird. She came 3.5 weeks early with a full head of red hair,” Drew continued. “In Thailand, Mali is the word for the jasmine flower. The scent of the jasmine flower has the ability to fill a room with sweetness.”
“A close variant in Hebrew is the word male’/maleah meaning full or fullness of God. Hannah was born on the cusp of the full moon. After several days of rain in California the moon was amazing when Peter was driving home to be with Micah the day after Hannah was born.” Micah is the couple’s 2-year-old son.
As for Rose, Drew said, “We chose Rose because it is one of the few flowers that blooms in December and we liked the way the names sounded together.”
Grey’s Anatomy star Sarah Drew has more late night calls in her future! The actress and her husband Peter Lanfer recently announced that they’re expecting their second baby. The couple’s 2-year-old son Micah will become a big brother sometime in December. Drew’s summer has been busy beyond babies: her latest film project — Mom’s Night Out — hit the big screen in May, and Grey’s Anatomy is set to resume on September 25th.

Another Grey’s Anatomy baby has arrived! Actress Sarah Drew, known for her role as Dr. April Kepner on Grey’s, and her husband Peter Lanfer welcomed their first baby on January 18th. And baby, who was a delivery room surprise, is a — boy! People is reporting the couple’s son, Micah Emmanuel Lanfer, weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces at his arrival.
Grey’s Anatomy is going for another round on the maternity ward. Grey’s actress Jessica Capshaw announced today via Twitter that she and husband Christopher Gavigan are expecting their third baby. This baby is the latest addition to the Grey’s crew: Eric Dane welcomed his second daughter in December, and Sarah Drew is expecting her first later this month. Capshaw’s baby joins older siblings Eve Augusta (14 months) and Luke Hudson (4 years old).
With the arrival of their baby getting closer and closer, Grey’s Anatomy star Sarah Drew and her husband, Peter Lanfer, recently celebrated a baby shower. The couple, who are expecting their baby in January, joined family and friends at Drew’s aunt’s LA home. They’re no doubt all prepared for when baby — boy or girl (the couple have chosen to wait to find out!) — makes his or her grand debut.
And the baby boom on the Grey’s Anatomy set continues! It all began back in 2009 when star Chyler Leigh welcomed daughter Anniston in May. Since then, four more babies have been added by Ellen Pompeo, Katherine Heigl (during her Grey’s stint), Eric Dane and Jessica Capshaw. Now Sarah Drew is adding to the baby boom! A rep for the actress confirmed that she and husband Peter Lanfer are expecting their first in January. No word yet on whether they’ll be welcoming a son or a daughter.
