Tess Holliday Gives Birth To Baby Boy

Posted: Updated:

Tess Holliday is officially a mama of two!

The 30-year-old model revealed exclusively to People that she gave birth to a baby boy on Monday, June 6. This marks the first child for Tess and her fiancé, Nick Holliday. She previously had a son with another partner 10 years ago.

Tess' newborn, which she named Bowie Juniper Holliday, weighed 8lbs., 10 oz., and measured 22 inches long. The #EffYourBeautyStandards creator shared a photo of herself and her newborn on her Instagram page Tuesday.

"It’s been 10 years since I had a kid, so there are so many things that are new," Tess told People. "My friends that have babies are posting all of these new swings and breastfeeding techniques and new bottles, and it’s really overwhelming because I thought, 'I’ve already done all this,' but it feels like I haven’t. I’m having to relearn a lot!"

Since announcing her pregnancy in January, the size 22 model faced a lot of backlash regarding her weight and the health of the baby. However, the body positive advocate was quick to shut down her haters, sharing a nude bathroom selfie of her pregnant belly writing, "When people say to me 'I can't tell you're pregnant' ... I will continue to live unapologetically, to thrive in this body, prove the naysayers wrong & laugh at the ignorance."

Of her growing family, Holliday told People following her pregnancy announcement, "I’m really excited to be doing it again and have support, and be able to enjoy having a baby, because I couldn’t last time [with Rylee, her first son]."

Her fiancé added, "I think it really solidifies the two halves of our family coming together. It will be nice to have the family more blended."

Congrats to the happy couple!
