Last May we learned the happy news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel star Mercedes McNab (who played the annoyingly loveable cheerleader-turned-vampire Harmony on both shows) got herself hitched to hubby Mark Henderson. Today we learn that Mercedes and Mark gave birth to a baby girl this week! This baby is the first for the couple and they gave her just the most beautiful name ever … Vaunne Sydney. OMG … can you BtVS fans believe that Harmony is a mommy now? Wow.
Mercedes McNab, best known for her role as Harmony on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, and husband Mark Henderson welcomed their first child on Monday, Feb. 25, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. Daughter Vaunne Sydney arrived at 5:50 p.m. in Greenbrae, Calif., weighing in at 6 lbs., 12 oz. and measuring 19.5 inches long. “Both mom and baby are resting peacefully together!” the actress’s rep says. “They are overjoyed with their new angel, and look forward to introducing her to everyone very soon.”
Mercedes is only the latest of BtVS and Angel alums to give birth and I am sending her growing family all of my lurve today. Mercedes as Harmony is truly one of my most favorite Buffy characters. She is the ONLY character to appear in the pilot episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the first Buffyverse ep ever) and the finale episode of Angel (the last Buffyverse ep ever) making her the character who outlived all other characters … including Buffy and Angel themselves. In any event, this is such happy news for us Buffy geeks that I had to share. Won’t you send your love and congrats to Mercedes, Mark and baby Vaunne as well?
