“He was born on his deceased grandfather Larry’s birthday (like I prayed for!) and his middle name is an homage to his great grandfather who is still here to meet him at almost 98 years old,” she wrote.

“Adler is a super(hero) big brother and @jensenkarp and I are thrilled to have him home, healthy and safe, with us,” she added. “Also, Adler thinks my postpartum care tools are a lot more fun than I do.”

On her 40th birthday, she announced that she was pregnant with her second child in an Instagram post. “F O R T Y! I’ve never been more excited or hopeful for the next decade of my life,” read the caption to the post.

Fishel beamed with a huge smile in the photo while holding her baby bump in a floral dress and white sneakers in front of a backdrop of lush green leaves.

The caption to her post continued: “I had a beautiful childhood, teenage years I still dream about, my 20’s were insane (and mostly miserable) and my 30’s brought me lows and highs but eventually I leveled out to a place of security.”

Security in who I am, what I believe, and with whom I want to spend precious time,” she went on. “I couldn’t be more grateful to enter my 40’s with my amazing husband and son, excitedly expecting the arrival of baby boy #2. My birthday wish is for all of you to tell someone how much you love them and walk through today with more patience than you normally might.”

Fishel and Karp tied the knot in November 2018.
