Lala Kent's new addition has arrived!
The Vanderpump Rules star, 30, and fiancé Randall Emmett welcomed their first child together, daughter Ocean Kent Emmett, she announced on Instagram Monday morning. Kent shared a photo of herself in her hospital bed, cradling her newborn and holding onto her tiny hand.
The couple announced the pregnancy news on a September episode of her podcast Give Them Lala … with Randall, where Kent began, "I'm, like, shaking right now because I can't believe that it's a real-life thing. I cry about everything but today it's very much happy tears."
"For my 30th birthday I have the best gift given to me, my body also helped out too — I am pregnant," she then revealed before cheers were heard in the background as Emmett, 49, shouted, "Lala Kent, a soon-to-be mother!"
Sharing snapshots from a recent maternity photo shoot earlier this month, Kent told PEOPLE about eagerly anticipating her baby girl's arrival.
"I have never been this excited for anything in my entire life," Kent said. "There are things in life that I can picture, though giving birth and meeting my daughter is something I can't. I have heard that this moment is unlike anything else. To think about that day coming excites me more than I can explain."
The star shared that she's been extra emotional lately — and she's ready to be a mom.
"I feel emotional. It hasn't been all ups, though," the Give Them Lala author said. "There have been times my hormones have gotten the best of me, mentally. But right now, in my final trimester, I am happy and excited, and so grateful. I'm ready to be a mama! The love I feel for her already is indescribable."

Who's Due Next? Celebs Who Are Expecting
Prior to the baby's introduction, Kent documented moments from her pregnancy, including a baby bump update just before New Year's. "Me and my best friend 💗," she wrote about her future daughter at the time, posing seated in the sun.
The reality star, back in November, shared a nude mirror selfie, joking that her "thirst traps look different these days."
Kent and Emmett — who is dad to two other daughters from a previous marriage — revealed the sex of their baby on the way to a group of friends and family and later made the announcement on Instagram in September. "We are having a baby girl!" she star wrote alongside a video of a skydiver touching down in a pink parachute.

During her podcast pregnancy announcement, Kent also shared advice she would give as a parent. "Oh, that is hard," she began at the time. "I think it would depend on if it was a boy or girl. I think I would be much more delicate if it was gonna be a chick but honestly, I think the one thing would be: 'You're safe with me. This world is really gonna try to kick your ass but I got you boo. I'm gonna kick its ass for you.' "
The reality television star and her producer beau have been dating since 2017 and got engaged in September 2018. The couple was originally set to tie the knot in April but postponed their wedding due to the ongoing pandemic.
"We are obviously saddened by this but for the ultimate safety of our families and guests, we have made the decision to wait and see how everything progresses. Safety will always be our number one priority," they previously told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement.
