We are loving the baby name Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner (not Henley!) might use for their rainbow baby.
Pregnant reality star Jamie Otis and her husband Doug Hehner, whom she met and married on the show Married at First Sight, may have just found out they were expecting for a second time, but they already have a baby name in mind—and it stems, oddly enough, from a misunderstanding.
You may remember how Otis and Hehner famously shared their first painful pregnancy loss on social media. First, they posted an emotional image of their son Johnathan Edward, who was born too early to survive, to Instagram. The heartbroken mama also honored her angel baby boy on the photo-sharing site on what would have been his due date
Recently, she and Hehner announced they were expecting again!
We are PREGNANT!!! Our sweet Baby Hehner is due this August. Of course I share so much more about our little #rainbowbaby with you all on my blog. (Jamie Otis.com/all-things-Jamie ) @people put the sweetest tribute together for our first born son – Johnathan. We love him so much and are so happy to know he’s looking down from Heaven taking care of his little sister/brother. ❤️ Thank you @people, for honoring our first born while we celebrate this amazing miracle.?

I’m at that awkward stage where I don’t quite fill out maternity jeans but I definitely don’t fit in my regular clothes. ????? #sohappy

And now, Otis has dropped a major hint about what their rainbow baby could be named.
Praying for our #rainbow baby. ??? #marriedlife #love #Johnathan #inmyheart #always PS – you have to read my book #wifey101 to understand why this name is so important and meaningful to us. ?❤️️

The mom-to-be talked to People about the significance of the moniker Henley, recalling how the morning after they met and wed, she mistakenly thought it was her new husband’s last name. “After we fell in love, we would laugh about it all the time. He’d always pick on me that he knew my whole name, but I couldn’t remember his.”
Well, I for one love this unique name for either a boy or a girl!
Meanwhile, Otis also expanded upon why she chose to share her pregnancy news so early this time, saying, “I had announced [my first pregnancy], and then about a week or two later I lost my baby, so I was so fortunate to have that kind of support. But I still felt lonely. To these women who don’t announce it until 12, 13 weeks ’cause then it’s ‘the safest’ …if they suffer a loss, it’s so lonely.”

The couple is still a little cautious this early in Otis’s pregnancy, but clearly, so very excited about what the future holds!
