Congratulations to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Heather Tom (Katie) and her husband, James Achor. The couple welcomed son Zane Alexander (8 lbs., 1 oz.) to the world on Sunday, October 28. "I was able to go drug-free with my labor," Tom tweeted. "Definitely the hardest thing I've ever done."

As for choosing the name, Tom tells Soaps In Depth the name Zane came to her in a dream, and was instantly agreed upon by her hubby. "James actually grew up right around Zanesville, Ohio, and we collect Zanesville pottery. I even found out that Zane Grey was James' grandfather's favorite writer!"

Tom has stated that she intends to return to work as soon as possible, so B&B viewers shouldn't expect Katie to be missing much on-screen this fall.
