It's officially a holiday at the Holliday household! Plus-size model Tess Holliday and her fiancé, Nick Holliday, just welcomed their baby boy into the world and judging by the photo of his teeny-tiny wittle toes, he sure is a cutie! And just as cute is the little fella's name — a total homage to one of our favorite rockstars.
Famously dubbed the world's first size-22 supermodel, Holliday has been slaying the maternity game for the past nine months, posting tons of Instagram pics in her always fabulous fashion — including one NSWF-nude pic, where she revealed her bare baby bump to the world (see below). And while we're sad to see her hang up her epic maternity style, we're so thrilled for the new mama and her soon-to-be hubby!
Holliday gave birth on Monday, June 6 to her little one, according to People magazine, whom she dubbed Bowie Juniper Holliday (after the late and legendary David Bowie, we assuming!).
Holliday is also the mother to 10-year-old Rylee from a previous relationship, but this old pro still feels like she has a lot to learn as she heads home with her adorable newborn! "It's been 10 years since I had a kid, so there are so many things that are new," explained Holliday. "My friends that have babies are posting all of these new swings and breastfeeding techniques and new bottles, and it's really overwhelming because I thought, 'I've already done all this,' but it feels like I haven't. I'm having to relearn a lot!"
However, this fearless feminist supermodel is still, well, totally fearless. "I'm really excited to be doing it again and have support, and be able to enjoy having a baby, because I couldn't last time [with Rylee]," said Holliday. "I think it really solidifies the two halves of our family coming together," her almost-hubby added. "It will be nice to have the family more blended."
You said it, Nick! Goodbye maternity style, hello wedding dress!
