Famed Ky. pair now parents

The Associated Press

        LOUISVILLE — Former Miss America Heather French Henry now has a new title — Mom.

        The wife of Kentucky Lt. Gov. Steve Henry gave birth at 12:22 p.m. EDT Friday to daughter Harper Renee Henry, the couple's first child. Mrs. Henry entered Baptist Hospital East, where labor was induced Thursday night. Mother and daughter, all 20 1/2 inches and 8 pounds, 10 ounces of her, rested after the procedure. Information about the birth was released by the hospital.

        The name is drawn from the maiden name of her paternal grandmother, Wanda Harper Henry and her mother's middle name, Renee.

        Mr. Henry, who is an orthopedic surgeon, was present at the birth.

        Mrs. Henry's reign as Miss America ended the week before her marriage in October 2000.
