“While I was hearing the fireworks and people telling me Happy New Year, I was just focused on meeting my baby,” Paola said to People.com. “It wasn’t easy, but it was totally worth it! My little miracle is so beautiful and calm. I feel so blessed and I can’t believe I am a mom now. I’m ready to start this new adventure and to be the best mom for baby Axel.”

The couple first shared news of their pregnancy in July, just weeks after opening up about their heartbreaking experience with miscarriage on the latest season of 90 Day Day Fiance: Happily Ever After. Then in August they were excited to learn they were expecting a baby boy at their exciting and confetti-filled gender reveal party.

Congratulations to the new family, we can't wait to meet your little one.
