‘Real World’ Alums Sean Duffy, Rachel Campos-Duffy, Have Eighth Child Together

As real as it gets! Real World alums Sean Duffy and Rachel Campos-Duffy welcomed their eighth child together on Sunday, May 29, and the now-Republican congressman shared several adorable photos of the family’s latest addition on Thursday, June 2.

“Our family is so blessed!” the Real World: Boston cast member captioned a collage of the couple posing with their newborn son. “We are excited to welcome our eighth, Patrick Miguel Duffy, into the world!”

In the images, the swaddled baby boy gets lots of love from not only his parents, but also his siblings, whose ages range from 2 to 16.

The 44-year-old politician first made his reality debut on the Boston season of Real World in 1997, but it wasn’t until the following year that he would meet his now-wife, Rachel Campos-Duffy, who appeared on the San Francisco season of Real World in 1994, as costars on the first Road Rules: All Stars.

“Meet Patrick Miguel Duffy!” the 44-year-old TV personality captioned a similar collage of photos on her own Facebook page. “He was born Sunday at 1:03 pm & weighed 5.13 lbs. I know he is baby #8, but this ‘new life’ thing never gets old!!! And the kids can’t get enough of him. … It’s gonna be wonderful life!”

The Duffys hosted a mini Real World reunion on Capitol Hill last fall to support Sean’s launch of the Ovarian Cancer Caucus.
