In just over two months since the tragic death of her husband, Fox News contributor Mary Katharine Ham gave birth Saturday to a healthy baby girl.

Ham’s husband, White House staffer Jake Brewer, was killed in a biking accident in September while taking part in a charity race for cancer research.

She named her daughter Garnet J. Brewer, after Garnet Canyon, Wyo., where Ham and Brewer had gone on a hike a few years back.

“Her middle initial is for her dad, Jake,” Ham wrote in an Instagram post. “I feel confident he’d love the name and is proud of all us girls today.”

Garnet is Ham’s second child with Brewer, joining a sister, Georgia, born in August 2013.

Ham posted a photo and a heartwarming message Sunday on Instagram introducing her new baby to the world:

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
