It’s a girl! We’ve learned that Maura and Scott have welcomed a baby girl into the world. Birdie West Defretias was born on June 16 and weighed in at 7 lbs 13 oz.

Soaps.com sends our congratulations to the couple on this terrific news!

Original Article: January 23.

Congratulations go out today to As The World Turns star Maura West (Carly Tenney Snyder) – who is pregnant, expecting her fifth child later this year!

Soaps.com has learned that Maura and husband Scott DeFreitas (ex-Andy) will add another baby to their growing brood in just a few months. The couple’s family already includes Joseph (age 9), Katherine (age 7) and Basil (age 2); Maura has another son (Benjamin, age 12) from a previous marriage.

We have not received official word, but it looks like the pregnancy will not be written into the show. Which means no more baby Snyder’s or baby Montgomery’s running around Oakdale. Boo-hoo! Everyone loves a soap opera baby!

There is no word on an official birth date but as soon as we learn of one we’ll pass the word along to you fans.

Congratulations to Maura and family from Soaps.com!
