Julia Pace Mitchell is now the proud mother of a baby boy. The ‘Young and the Restless’ star and husband Stephen Hightower welcomed Stephen L. Hightower III into the world at 7:45a.m. on Wednesday, May 22, 2013 in the beautiful state of Ohio, a rep tells Blackcelebkids.com. Stephen III was a healthy 7lbs., 8oz., and measured 21 inches long.
Julia and Stephen II were every bit of excited to welcome their son into the world, as he is their first child together. “Being new parents has brought us closer together, it’s all about teamwork. Little Stephen is awesome. Being a mom is the greatest role I will ever play,” said Julia after giving birth.
Julia and Stephen II wed in 2011. Stephen III was born at Atrium Medical Center in Middletwon, Ohio.
