Bethenny Frankel In Labor? Real Housewife Having Baby Early

Bethenny Frankel is reportedly having her baby almost a month early. A source told Life & Style she went into labor late Thursday night. If true, she is tweeting from the delivery room.

"Thanks so much everyone.your messages were so thoughtful and sweet.I read every one.I love you guys!" Bethenny tweeted around noon on Friday. Her Twitter account had been strangely silent for the past 14 hours.

Life & Style released the following statement:

Oh, baby! Real Housewife of New York City Bethenny Frankel is in labor, a source tells Life & Style.

"Her water broke at 12:46 a.m. She's at the hospital now," says a friend close to the reality star, who recently married entrepreneur Jason Hoppy.

Bethenny and baby are running a little ahead of schedule, as the mama-to-be's due date was set for early June.

"I was at an age when I said, 'You know what, if I get pregnant it will be a blessing,'" Bethenny told Life & Style at her bridal shower on March 21.

Bethenny and Jason tied the knot at the Four Seasons in NYC on March 28. The couple plan to be surprised with the sex of their newest addition, though Bethenny has her fingers crossed for a girl.

"I hope the way I'm carrying doesn't mean I'm having a boy," Bethenny told Life & Style.
