Aly Michalka Gives Birth to Her First Child with Stephen Ringer

Aly Michalka and Stephen Ringer have had their first child! On Monday, the couple told People that they welcomed their son Jack Francis into their Santa Barbara home on April 21.

“It was a very peaceful and calm birth, and that’s what we were hoping for,” Aly tells the outlet. “He’s just a great little guy. He has a very special personality.”

Jack Francis, who was born two weeks premature, takes his first name from his maternal great-grandfather and his middle name from his father’s side.

When asked why Michalka and Ringer chose to have a home birth, the former explains, “Childbirth is a very unique journey and a very unique decision for every woman. However, I feel like our medical system intervenes in ways that can be very harmful to women and very traumatic not only for themselves but also for their baby. For me, this was a great way to avoid that.”

Even after 50 hours of labor, during which she was supported by her husband, a midwife and two doulas, Michalka says her birth experience was “simply wonderful.”

“It was really everything we imagined,” she says.
