The newborn has been named Leafar Von D Reyes and was delivered in a pre-planned home birth that Kat had previously talked about.
Celebrity tattoo artist Kat Von D has given birth to a little baby boy! The 36-year-old welcomed her first-born with husband Leafar Seyer during a pre-planned home birth.
Her little one is named Leafar Von D Reyes and she shared a picture on Instagram to officially announce his arrival. The caption read: "Meet our beautiful baby boy. Leafar Von D Reyes. Thank you to all our beloved friends+family, fans+followers for your patience in us announcing his long-awaited arrival!” She added, "To be honest, my husband and I @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.” She concluded with, “Just know we love you all and thank you for all the words of love+support!”
E!Online reports that Kat and her musician husband married in February 2018, later gathering their family and friends for an elaborate, summer wedding ceremony held at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Kat looked stunning in a striking red gown and veil for the event. Kat later revealed to fans that she was pregnant in May when she shared an aesthetic, artistic photograph of her baby bump.
Ever since Kat has been open with her fans about her pregnancy and the kind of experiences she was going through. She revealed on Instagram that she planned on "having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula." She also caused quite a stir when she told fans that she intended on raising her future child vegan and without vaccinations. After the expected backlash, the makeup mogul clarified her and her husband's stance on the topic, saying they don't necessarily align with the anti-vaccination moment.
To clarify her stance further she posted on social media saying, "What we have found is that sometimes it isn't always so black and white. While we believe medications, including vaccines, are not all bad—we also can't dismiss the fact that some may not be good for everyone."
She shared another emotional post on Instagram where she described how her pregnancy had brought her and her husband closer to each other. She gave a shout-out to all mothers who were going through pregnancies themselves. She wrote, "Yes, this pregnancy has brought my husband and I closer than we could have ever imagined [and we haven't even had our baby yet!] but it's also connected me deeply with all my fellow sisters in motherhood out there."
She added, "Naturally, I've become more empathetic and understanding of other mothers regardless of how different our approach to birthing might be and I just feel so lucky to be able to experience all of this alongside you guys."
