Tommy shared a health update following the birth. "My wife had a ton of complications she was in surgery for, like, five hours...The night my son was born was the worst night of my life,” he admitted on Instagram. "She still hasn’t held her baby yet, but that should probably happen later today...Everything’s great. I’m the happiest guy on Earth."

MJ suffered from fertility issues on the road to motherhood but successfully underwent IVF.
