Claire, Frank, and baby Brianna



Here's our first look at Claire, Frank, and newborn Brianna, from OUTLANDER Season 3! (Photo courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.)

I like this photo very much. To me, it captures the essence of this quote from VOYAGER:
As the birth grew closer, we had both been edgy; Frank irritable and myself terrified, having no idea what might happen between us, with the appearance of Jamie Fraser’s child. But when the nurse had taken Brianna from her bassinet and handed her to Frank, with the words “Here’s Daddy’s little girl,” his face had grown blank, and then--looking down at the tiny face, perfect as a rosebud--gone soft with wonder. Within a week, he had been hers, body and soul.

I'm looking forward to seeing how Claire and Frank's relationship (in the TV series) changes as a result of the birth of Jamie's daughter.

That is one big newborn. Were we ever told how much Brianna weighed when she was born?

After losing Faith, I would expect that look of joy on CLaire's face. She will always see Jamie when she looks at his child. After losing our first child soon after his birth due to a heart defect, I felt so happy and blessed to hold our newborn daughter two years later.
