The 38-year-old reality TV star posted videos from the hospital leading up to the delivery, including a last one with Dr. Jackie Walters of “Married to Medicine,” who acted as Richard-Ross’ OB-GYN.

During an interview with People at BravoCon in November, the former Olympian shared that Deuce was “over the moon” anticipating a sibling, especially after learning he was getting a brother.

“I think he was waiting on me to get on board,” Richards-Ross shared, “because he has been wanting to be a big brother for so long.”

The birth of her new baby comes after she previously went through a “tough” situation suffering a miscarriage.

“I said to Deuce when we were going through this, we told him it wasn’t going to happen,” Richards-Ross said at BravoCon, People reported. “I want him to be on the journey with us because life does not always go the way you planned. You’re going to have ups and downs. I thought it was a good lesson for him to know that even though we were prayerful, we did all the right things, it didn’t happen. As soon as it happened again, I told him.”
