Late Tuesday night, celebrity tattoo artist and beauty mogul Kat Von D announced she's pregnant with her first child, a boy, with her musician husband, Leafar Seyer. (He's in the goth band Prayers.) The proud parents both posted about their little bundle of joy on Instagram, where Von D embraced her signature pin-up glam look to enhance her growing stomach. "It's a boy," she simply wrote to accompany the photo, while Seyer was a bit more forthcoming about his excitement: "When I thought I had it all. Life gifts me with the greatest of joys ! We are pregnant and having a baby boy. I love you @thekatvond and Im ready to be a father to our son Leafar. Thank you my love our family comes first!"

Von D and Seyer have had a whirlwind 2018 as a couple. Following a Valentine's Day engagement, the duo was married in a hush-hush February ceremony in Beverly Hills, California, that was confirmed only by Instagram photos by Von D herself.

"Today, I married my soul’s mate, my mind’s twin, my best friend: @prayers. Juntos en vida y en muerte," Von D wrote at the time.

The couple have maintained a private stance about their romance, although Seyer has previously opened up about the first time they met. “I played a song for Travis Barker [who produced Prayers's last album, Young Gods] called 'Underneath the Stars' that's on Baptism of Thieves, about a serial killer who's in love with a girl,” he explained. “I was telling him the concept for the music video, and he says, ‘You know who the perfect person for this video would be? Kat Von D—I'm friends with her.’ And I was like, ‘Well, why don't you call her right now and tell her what you just said to me?’” Let's only hope the new baby boy makes his debut in a future beauty campaign or music video.
