Congratulations to Tattoo artist, make up entrepreneur Kat Von D and her musician husband Rafael Reyes on welcoming their firs chils, son Leafar Von D Reyes.
The LA Ink alum announced the news on Instagram last Sunday, December 2.
“Thank you to all our belovedfriends+family, fans+followers for your patience in us announcing his long-awaited arrival!” she captioned a photo of her husband cradling their newborn. “To be honest, my husband @prayers and I want to take the next 40 days [the 4th trimester] to focus on the baby and our amazing relationship transitioning into amazing parenthood — so, please excuse us if we’re not on here as much for a little while. Just know we love you all and thank you for all the words of love+support!”
The delivery was via water birth thanks to getting inspired by Ricki Lake‘s documentary “The Business of Being Born.”
Coincidentally, the documentary influenced Amber Rose’s delivery plans too!
“After that, we ditched the doctors and found a midwife,” she’s quoted as saying. “We did a lot of research. We’re excited.”
Reyes and Von D married in February and she announced she was expecting three months later.
