It's a son for her and fellow fitness star Benjamin Bunn. They named him something that many people in the game of Big Brother are not: Loyal.

“My family has a history of strong and unique names, so I wanted to follow suit,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I chose his first name, Loyal, because I believe it will guide him to have strong integrity through his life. It’s a reminder that family comes first, which is why it is his first name."

She also went into detail about his middle name. "I chose his second name, Atticus, from the Greek educator and philosopher to embrace balance and fairness through understanding. Neither is a family name but I hope he will embrace his name as his own and follow the greatness he can bring to this world through love, understanding, and fair action.”

Christmas first announced that she was pregnant back in March on Instagram. “Well, I’ve always expected the unexpected and this year is no different! In January I discovered I am actually EXPECTING and a whole new life would be laid out for me,” she wrote at the time.

Her fellow BB19 finalists Josh Martinez (who won that season) and Paul Abrahamian both wished her a ton of luck right before she delivered Loyal. "I love you," Josh simply wrote. Congrats to Christmas and Benjamin!
