Congrats to first-time mom and dad Emily Ratajkowski and husband Sebastian Bear-McClard! The model/actress recently announced the birth of a baby boy with a sweet mommy-son Instagram pic.

The model and actress went public with her growing baby bump last fall, with a series of IG posts and an essay in Vogue on why she doesn’t want to reveal the gender of her baby.

Ratajkowski wrote last October in Vogue, “the truth that we ultimately have no idea who—rather than what—is growing inside my belly. Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to? How will they change our lives and who we are? This is a wondrous and terrifying concept, one that renders us both helpless and humbled.”

She went on to add, “I think about my husband and what a son would bring up for him. Is he secretly yearning for a boy? When I ask him, he refuses to give me an answer, swearing that he doesn’t have a preference. But one Sunday as he’s watching football he makes a remark about how it’d be fun to have a little boy to watch with.”

As it turns out, Ratajkowski and Bear-McClard did have a boy—and they named their son Sylvester Apollo Bear. The new mom got plenty of congratulations on IG, with celebs such as Kate Bosworth and Ashley Graham sending well wishes.
