In an episode of the podcast, Drew spilled the beans on their little one before asking his wife how she feels after giving birth and he said, “Our new baby boy, he’s a healthy baby, he’s adorable.”
The new mom Linda added, “Other than pooped, I feel great. Very happy that he’s finally here. I’m still in awe and in disbelief. I feel like every step of this pregnancy has taken me time to adjust. And then as soon as I almost adjust, it’s onto the next milestone or the next thing. I feel like I’m always playing catchup with my feelings.”
On the other hand, Scott stated so far he has been enjoying fatherhood. He said, “It’s this immediate love and this feeling you need to do everything you can to make them feel safe and make them feel loved.”
Linda stayed in labor for 44 hours before Parker’s arrival
Yes, Parker took a pretty long time to meet his parents Drew and Linda. He kept them waiting for nearly 44 hours. Kudos to Linda for being so patient and acing this last test of pregnancy called delivery like a pro.
After a while, Phan agreed to take an epidural however at the start she was hoping not to take it as she is terrified of needles and a cesarean section. She said, “It was getting dangerously long.”
The podcast producer continued, “It seems like such a blur now. Just being in the moment, I think that’s all you can do. I felt oddly calm for the most part. Like I was just flowing through it.”
Drew jokingly added, “Parker decided to come very efficiently on our anniversary. He’s stealing the show. It’s no longer about you and me on our anniversary,” while Linda said, “He made it just in time to celebrate with us.”

They further added, “When we first started down this path, we quickly felt sooooo appreciative of the doctors we’ve been fortunate to work with, and fam and friends who supported us throughout, sharing their stories or simply just being there. It made an overwhelming time in our lives more manageable. We hope as we grow through this, that even one of you reading this can also feel a little less lonely in whatever path you’re on!”
