NAME SIGNIFICANCE

According to People, in addition to the significance of names, her cousin Wendy Wear Stapleton revealed the duo named their daughter Cora Coyne because Barbara likes the alliteration.

Regarding her middle name, the little one was named after her grandfather and great-grandfather. Aunt Jenna also celebrated her arrival and posted images of the newborn last week during her first meeting with her niece in the hospital.

FEELING GUILTY

Jenna previously talked about her feelings on getting pregnant while her sister was trying to conceive, stating she felt a sense of guilt. She once shared that infertility runs in their family but that their mom reassured them that every woman gets pregnant in her own time.
