Alongside the sweet snap, Brittany wrote: ‘She’s here!!!! Ashtyn Lilly Lutz. 2•22•21. The day she came into the world it was snowing, raining, and freezing, but that night she was born and we woke up to sun, clear skies, and winter melting away.’

Referencing her stillbirth last year, Brittany continued: ‘It was so symbolic considering this time last year was literally winter for our souls only to be met one year later with the brightest sunshine. She ushered in a new season for us and we love her beyond comprehension.’

She continued: ‘God redeems. He restores.He never leaves us broken-hearted, we just have to give Him the broken pieces and what He turns it into? Wow. 

Brittany also reposted the image on her Stories alongside the caption ‘It’s a girl!’, after previously revealing they were expecting a daughter.

The video sees the Twilight actor peaking out from behind a bouquet of flowers, across the kitchen counter from his wife.

After a brief ‘I love you’/’I love you more’ back and forth, Lutz asked his wife what was written on her sweatshirt.

The word ‘Mama’ had been visible during the video but the word before it was obscured by the floral arrangement.
