Kat Von D and Leafar Seyer are parents! The couple welcomed their first child a baby boy.
The proud new mama revealed the news via Instagram on Sunday, December 2.
Sharing a picture of her husband holding their newborn son Von D wrote alongside her post, “Thank you to all our beloved friends+family, fans+followers for your patience in us announcing his long-awaited arrival! 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.

Back in September, the 36-year-old tattoo artist revealed that she was opting for an all natural home water birth. She thanked Ricki Lake for inspiring her after watching Lake’s 2008 documentary The Business of Being Born. Kat told Us at the time of her decision, “After that, we ditched the doctors and found a midwife. We did a lot of research. We’re excited.”

Von D and Seyer tied the knot in February. Three months later the tattoo artist announced she and Seyer were expecting. Von D gushed how her husband has been the doting husband during her pregnancy. “I’m really lucky I have a husband who is really involved in the entire process. Not by choice, you know, I don’t force it on him. He’s super excited to be a part of everything. I’m lucky.”

38 weeks pregnant and feeling super awesome! Granted it’s taking me a bit more time to walk up a hill I used to be able to run up, but other than that, this has been the easiest most comfortable pregnancy I could have ever imagined! So excited to meet our Baby Leafar soon!!! 🖤 *before you comment, yes, I already know I look like I’m about to pop and no, I’m not having twins. Happy Sabbath, everyone! 🖤
Von D never thought she was cut out for motherhood. In December 2017 Von D spoke to Dr. Drew Pinsky, “No children for me. The funny thing is that I’ve known since I was 7 years old that I was never going to have kids. “I always imagined myself as this worldly, traveling, gypsy lady. I love children, kids love me, but I think I’d make a really good buddy. I don’t know if I’d be a bad mom, but it’s not what I want. I don’t want to put my body through it.”
