In early November the beauty was seen in a hospital bed as she cradled her newborn girl in her arms.

‘Last night at 11pm, I finally got to hold my baby girl for the first time. 4 days earth side,’ the 30-year-old Nevada resident shared. She was still in her hospital bed.

‘She’s doing so much better. She has more tests today and more milestones to meet this week but we are feeling so grateful and blessed for these moments,’ added the raven haired star.

The child has been in the NICU after Shaunyl had to have an emergency C-section last week at 35 weeks along. Shaunyl said the child was ‘doing well’ as she seemed to have ‘mighty strength.’ 

‘God gave us warrior children,’ the actress shared to social media.

Johnny is undergoing chemotherapy and treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia at the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation in Vegas.

Choking back tears, he revealed how the kind-hearted boy cheered up a distraught fellow patient by handing him his toy car.

Recounting the moment he told DailyMailTV: ‘Johnny Crisstopher is a very unique boy.

‘He is selfless. This happened yesterday while he was here; I haven’t told anybody this story, it’s a true story. Johnny Crisstopher was here being treated. He was in a room, Shaunyl was with him, there was a little boy who was constantly crying. Johnny looked over to Shaunyl and said, ”Mommy, why is that boy crying?” And Shaunyl said he’s probably getting treated, he’s probably scared and Johnny Crisstopher says, ”I want to give him a Hot Wheel car.”’
