The couple said 'hello' to their new baby boy on Wednesday morning

What a way to kick off the new year: Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker have welcomed their first child together.

A rep for the couple confirmed the news with PEOPLE on Wednesday morning, revealing that their "bouncing baby boy" arrived at 8:42 a.m. and weighed in at 7 lbs., 6 oz.


"Todd and I have been waiting so long for his delivery and he is so very perfect," the singer and "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star told the outlet.

Burruss announced the pregnancy back in July after undergoing in vitro fertilization treatments to better her chances of conceiving.

This will be the third child for the couple's blended family. Burruss and Tucker have one daughter apiece from previous relationships.
