The fifth baby she always wanted! Tamra Judge is officially a grandma. The Real Housewives of Orange County star’s son Ryan Vieth has welcomed a daughter, Ava, with fiancée Sarah Rodriguez, who gave birth Monday, Feb. 9.

“It’s a girl. Sarah and Ava are doing great. She has her momma eyes and her daddies cheeks,” Judge announced via Instagram, along with a diaper which read: “Ava was born at 8:41 a.m. 7 lbs, 14 oz. 19 1/2 in.”

The Bravo star couldn’t have been more excited for the new family addition, but when Ryan, her eldest, delivered the news that they were not only engaged, but going to be moving to a different city, she was hysterical.

As viewers witnessed on season nine of the show, Judge bawled her eyes out after Vieth broke the news they were engaged after only dating for two months and meeting on Instagram.

“I’m in shock that Ryan is going to quit his job and move in with a girl he met on Instagram,” Barney told Bravo’s cameras. “Who does that?!”

Following the dramatic dinner scene, Judge has finally come around.

“So excited. OMG I'm going to be a Tam-ma soon. #Roseville,” she captioned a countdown photo on Instagram leading up to baby Ava’s birth, giving their new home a shout-out. “They have been in the OR for 15 minutes. Waiting patiently with the girls in the waiting room. I can't wait to meet my granddaughter,” she wrote alongside another photo of Rodriguez and Vieth prior to Ava’s arrival. 

Rodriguez is already a proud mom of three. This is the first child for Vieth, whose dad is Judge’s ex-husband Darren Vieth.
