Forget celebrating the new year with a glass of champagne and a kiss.
Jessica Alba celebrated the flipping of the calendar with… a new baby!
The actress and long-time husband Cash Warren added to their gorgeous family on Monday night, welcoming child number-three to close out 2017 in the most miraculous way possible.
Wrote Alba on Instagram, along with the following picture of her newborn:
“Hayes Alba Warren 12/31/17 Best gift to ring in the New Year!! Cash and I feel so blessed. Haven and Honor are already obsessed with their new baby bro.”
What a precious image, don’t you think?
Take a close, long, sentimental look at it here:
Indeed, as Alba mentions above, the stars are already parents to daughters Honor, 9, and Haven, 6, and had always planned on giving them a brother or a sister.
“It was always in the cards for them to have a third child,” an insider previously told E! News. “It was definitely part of the plan and they just wanted to wait a few years for the right time.”
“@cash_warren and I are officially going to be outnumbered #babyonboard #herewegoagain #blessed,” Alba penned as a caption at the time alongside a photo of her and her two kids.
Warren, meanwhile, also shared a precious picture on Instagram and wrote right next to it:
Hayes Alba Warren: You sure know how to ring in the new year!” he captioned the photo. “You showed up a few days early but we couldn’t be any happier.
Your Mamma is the strongest woman I know … you’re so lucky to have her by your side. You have two amazing sisters who already adore you and I know you’ll be thankful to have them guide the way.
On your first day of life, I promise to love you, to cherish you, and to provide you with a sandbox full of dreams to explore.
Welcome to the family my sweet baby Hayes!
Alba, who runs The Honest Company and has basically retired from acting, often shared photos of her baby bump on social media over the past few months.
She very openly embraced her curves and the bun growing in her oven.
“Love being preggers w my baby boo #BossLady @jkroogr,” the star wrote at one point.
Adds the aforementioned source to E! News:
“Jessica has been working her entire pregnancy and will still play a role when the baby is born.
“Her company means a lot to her but she is thankful that she has a great team to help her.”
We send her the very best.
