Jax, 41, was overjoyed at the safe delivery of their little one and praised Brittany, 32, for her strength. “I don’t think I have ever been as happy as I am right now, everything else in life seems so insignificant now. I am crying just writing this message,” the emotional Bravo alum wrote via Instagram, noting dad mode just kicked in for him. “I have the most beautiful son a man could ask for, he’s an absolute blessing from god.”

“I just want to say how absolutely amazing my wife has been through this whole process,” Jax continued. “It has not been an easy pregnancy for her but she did an absolute amazing job all the way till the end.”

“I am growing a perfect and healthy human being who I have only dreamed of my entire life,” she fired back. “I am going to give my body the respect it deserves and shout it from the rooftops how lucky and blessed I feel to experience this pregnancy…I am feeling very lucky and emotional to have this opportunity to be a mom and I will no longer let trolls influence my happiness.”

In December, the duo also announced their exit from Vanderpump Rules and confirmed they would not be returning for season 9. Jax told fans he was so grateful for the experience, calling it “challenging, rewarding and fulfilling.”
