The REAL next great baker

Sometimes a picture IS worth a thousand words.  That is certainly the case for the first baby picture featuring the daughter of Bear’s “Next Great Baker”.

Dana Herbert and his wife Netesha welcomed Siani Rose into the world at 5:27 Thursday.  She came in weighing 8 lbs. 12.5 oz.  Herbert reports both mother and daughter are doing fine.

Herbert is the reality show chef who won the competition known as “The Next Great Baker”.   The man who chose him as the winner of the competition, Buddy Valastro delivered his own baby news this week.  He and his wife Lisa welcomed their fourth child, Carlo.  The baby is named after the namesake of the bakery featured on the TLC reality show, “Cake Boss”.

Herbert is enjoying the moment, but has some ideas on the toys she’ll need growing up. “Not sure when she will be in daddy’s kitchen but once she’s old enough to talk and walk I will get her some of her own kitchen toys (wooden spoon and maybe her own mini rolling pin),” he wrote us as he sent along the first baby picture.
