Efird shared the first photos of her son on Wednesday, July 21, shortly after giving birth. Apart from posting a close-up of her newborn's face, the 21-year-old — who also shares 3-year-old daughter Ella Grace with her hubby — shared a snap of Bentley's face next to what is believed to be her breast. In a third photo, her husband was lovingly holding and looking down at the newest addition to their family.

"Congratulation to you both on the Birth of your New baby boy 💙💙💙💙❤️," another added, while Gina Rodriguez — the executive producer of Mama June: Road to Redemption — commented: "OMG our new little baby boy #Bentley."

Efird has been very open about her pregnancy journey, as she often shared photos to Instagram of her growing baby bump throughout the months. In June, Efird put her baby bump on full display — while rocking a pink sports bra and patterned underwear — as she posed for a mirror selfie. "My body has given me the greatest gift of life ❤️👶🏼👣," she captioned the bold snap.

Efird revealed the gender of her second baby during an episode of the WeTV show. At the time, she gathered the family into the living room and presented them with a cake she baked, which had blue food coloring inside.

Shannon — who was arrested in 2019 on drug and possession charges — helped her granddaughter and daughter Honey Boo Boo cut into the cake, revealing the blue coloring. The recovering addict was ecstatic by the news, pointing out that the family was full of women up until this point.

Efird first announced that she had a bun in the oven in April, admitting that she was really excited and surprised when the couple found out, since they weren't trying for a baby. "I think all of us, we're excited, but it's also nerve-wracking in the same sentence," she told PEOPLE. "We weren't really expecting. We also weren't trying either, but we weren't preventing."

She explained that the lovebirds tried to get pregnant for a while, but the tests kept coming back negative. The parents "had already come to terms" with the thought that "Ella may just be our one and it just being us and we're going to be okay," Efird continued, noting that she went off birth control for a year and a half.

But "this one day I just had a weird feeling and I took [a pregnancy test] and it came up positive," she recalled of the exciting moment.
