AceShowbiz - Christine Quinn has officially become a first time mother. Having gone through a scary emergency c-section to give birth to a healthy baby boy, the "Selling Sunset" star admitted in her social media announcement that she's "beyond grateful."
The 31-year-old shared the happy news Instagram on Wednesday, May 19. Along with a series of her sepia-toned maternity shots, she wrote in the caption, "It's official! I'm a mommy! Baby C made his grand entrance over the weekend. I am beyond grateful to my husband, and to all the wonderful doctors and nurses who helped me. It was a little scary, but we are beyond grateful."
When spilling more details about her labor, Christine opened up to PEOPLE that her water broke shortly after she returned home from filming season 4 of "Selling Sunset.". She recalled, "It was a giant gush of fluid, just like in the movies. I wrapped a towel around my waist and off we went to the hospital."
"Twenty-two minutes later, Baby C was born via emergency c-section performed by Dr. Steve A. Rad. He was incredible under the pressure and complexity of the situation," the celebrity real agent continued. She went on to note that "it was the most magical moment" of her life, and added, "Suddenly, there is a tiny human in my arms. It was surreal when I was finally able to hold him and kiss his little nose. I can't believe that we created this little miracle."
"Baby C is more precious than I could have ever imagined. Nine months seems like a lifetime to wait to meet someone," the Netflix star told the publication. She then raved about motherhood by saying, "It is the most incredible feeling to know that you have created life. My protective mama bear mentality is stronger than ever. My sole job is to protect him, to love him and to raise him."
Christine has also revealed her baby boy's name, Christian Georges Dumontet, to the outlet. Baby Christian, whom she welcomed with husband Christian Richard, was born on Saturday, May 15, at 4:22 P.M. in Los Angeles. The newborn weighed 6 lbs., 14 oz., and measured 20.5 inches long at the time of his birth.
Several hours after going public about Christian's arrival, Christine expressed her gratitude for the warm wishes. Over a selfie snap in an Instagram Story, she wrote, "Love you all! Thank you for the wonderful warm messages! This mommy is tired but she's still got werk to do!" She added the hashtags of "boss bi**h" and "mommys are superheros."
