Marla Sokoloff has no shame in calling out her husband, Alec Puro.
In a recent Instagram post, Sokoloff hilariously recalls all the ridiculous comments and questions her husband made while she was in labor with their sweet bundle of joy.
The actress gave birth on Sunday, February 6, to her third daughter with the aforementioned (and clearly dramatic) husband Puro.
“Welcome to the world, my sweet Harper Bea,” Sokoloff, 40, captioned a Thursday, February 10, Instagram photo of herself holding the newborn.
“Harper decided to make her debut a little early on 2/6/22, and to say we are all obsessed with her would be a massive understatement. She is named after my dad Howard and Alec’s grandma Bebe. Her two angels. Big sisters Elliotte and Olive are busy covering her with kisses, and mom and dad are buzzing on gratitude and caffeine. Thank you for perfectly completing our family, Harper.”
Sokoloff proudly showed off her baby bump in an October 2021 Instagram post.
“One. Two. Three!” the mama captioned the sweet photo at the time. “Ahhh! Our sweet surprise little lady coming early 2022.”
Sokoloff went on to exclusively tell Us Weekly, “We truly thought the baby phase of our lives was part of our past, but the universe had other plans in store for us. Telling our daughters was a moment I will never forget. My older daughter cried her eyes out — in the most joyous and blissful way!”
Sokoloff, who is also mother to Elliotte, 9, and Olive, 6, joked how people’s reactions to her pregnancy had been “wild,” saying, “I could write a book.”
While celebrating Mother’s Day in May 2021, Sokoloff informed her Instagram followers how she was “endlessly proud” to be the little ones’ mother.
“Don’t blink, you just might miss it,” she wrote at the time.
“When my older daughter was a baby, a woman at the market saw me struggling and said these very words to me. In the moment, this didn’t resonate with me because I was tired, I was frustrated, and I was doing everything wrong. (Or so I thought.) I didn’t fully understand at the time, but truer words have never been spoken. Somehow my babies aren’t babies anymore. Every day they need me less. Time is moving faster than I can keep up with. … Now that our babies are kids that will soon become adults.”
