Beautiful baby boy! Christmas Abbott shared the first photo of her son, Loyal Atticus Abbott, one day after giving birth.

“Thank you for all of your thoughts and well wishes. It was a LONG and HARD labor that didn’t go as well as I hoped for but his health is beyond what I could ask for so I’ll gladly take that trade. He is strong as hell and super happy,” the Big Brother alum, 36, captioned an Instagram photo cradling her newborn on Tuesday, October 9. “He even was lifting his head looking around only an hour after birth! I’m already a very proud mama!!! I’d like to give more details about his birth but even more right now I want to spend time with him while recovering. It’s been a tough but incredible time.”

After welcoming her little one with fitness hunk Benjamin Bunn, Abbott opened up about his special moniker. “My family has a history of strong and unique names, so I wanted to follow suit. I chose his first name, Loyal, believe I believe it will guide him to have strong integrity through his life,” she told Entertainment Tonight earlier on Tuesday. “It’s a reminder that family comes first which is why it is his first name. I chose his second name, Atticus, from the Greek educator and philosopher to embrace balance and fairness through understanding. Neither is a family name but I hope he will embrace his name as his own and follow the greatness he can bring to this world through love, understanding, and fair action.”

Abbott, who rose to fame after placing third on Big Brother season 19 in 2017, announced her pregnancy in March and has since been open with fans via Instagram about her journey. She has shared several snapshots of her growing bump and updated followers on her well-being. The status of her relationship with Loyal’s father is not clear.
