Jack Stirrup as a deckhand on Below Deck Mediterranean left much to be desired. His work ethic was consistently low and he blamed Bosun Joao Franco for his lack of inspiration. Captain Sandy Yawn repeatedly had to ask Jack to tie his hair back. The risk of getting kicked off the boat was pretty high until Jack started to change his behaviors.
Finally, Jack found a reason to stay on the boat. Second Stew Aesha Scott caught Jack’s eye and the two started an endearing courtship. By the end of the charter season, the two were walking off the dock together. The boat-mance didn’t last, unfortunately, and Jack went back to his ex-girlfriend without giving Aesha any clarity that he was doing so. He later claimed that production coerced him into expressing deeper feelings than he had at the time.
In October, Jack and his girlfriend announced that they were expecting a child together. Kelly shared a photo from paradise. She was posing under palm tree cradling her bump. She captioned the photo, “..here I am ready to take on the world with my growing little human, and amazing boyfriend by my side…”
Now, The Daily Dish announced that Jack and girlfriend Kelly Hidge have welcomed their child into the world.
Kelly gave birth on April 15, but gave herself three much needed days of rest before sharing the news on social media. On Saturday, Kelly shared some adorable photos of the couples’ newborn son. They chose the name Phoenix Sidney Stirrup.
“I can’t put into words how much I love you already,” Kelly captioned the photos with all the excitement of a new parent. Many congratulations to Jack and Kelly!
