Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn has welcomed her first child.
The 31-year-old and her husband, Christian Richard, welcomed a healthy baby boy on Saturday, May 15, at 4:22 p.m. in Los Angeles, Calif. The newborn, named Christian Georges Dumontet, weighed 6 lbs., 14 oz., and measured 20.5 inches long.
"Baby C is more precious that I could have ever imagined. Nine months seems like a lifetime to wait to meet someone," Quinn gushed to PEOPLE. "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."
She and Richard tied the knot in 2019.
"Let's just say he was born with good taste. He has a closet filled with designer outfits that I cannot wait to dress him in!" she joked.
"It was a giant gush of fluid, just like in the movies," she said of her water breaking, which happened just after she came home to relax after filming Selling Sunset. "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."
Quinn said her son was "very eager to make his appearance in this world and in dramatic fashion," which he inherited from her, though she didn't go into much more detail.
Quinn described Richard as her "rock" during birth. "He was very calm throughout the whole process," she explained. "One day I might share more about what happened, but for right now, I am humbled and grateful that three of us came home from the hospital."
Holding her baby for the first time was the "most magical" moment of Quinn's life. "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," she gushed.
Quinn also let her 1.7 million Instagram followers know that she had given birth. "It’s official! I’m a mommy!" she captioned a series of black-and-white maternity photos.
She continued, "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."
Fans and famous friends rushed to the comments to congratulate the new parents. "Congratulations!! ❤️," Olivia Pierson wrote.
"Ahhhh congratulations!!! You guys are going to be the best parents ever. I need to bring my presents to you 🙈 they will help 🤪," Lilly Ghalichi commented.
