Kate Levering, 34, proudly showed off her first child this week. In the personal photo, the Drop Dead Diva actressjoyfully holds her newborn son.
She gave birth to her baby boy with husband Reza Jahangiri on July 18 at 9:35 P.M. in Newport Beach, Calif. Named Holden Robert Jahangiri, the baby arrived one month early. He weighed 5 lbs., 4 oz and measured 18 inches at time of birth.
Levering and Jahangiri tied the knot in April this year, and confirmed they were expecting their first child in May.
The first-time mom is also already trying to get back into shape after baby. "Thanks Alex Arreguin for my 1st post baby workout," she wrote on Aug. 13. "Hard 2 do ab exercises, when you HAVE NONE!! #trying2baMILF."
This week, Levering spoke about her son's birth. "We were in no way prepared for an early delivery. I had only been home from shooting Drop Dead Diva for nine days," Levering told PEOPLE.
While the mom-to-be had originally hoped to labor at home with a midwife before heading to the hospital for an all-natural birth, baby boy’s early arrival sent Levering straight to the maternity ward.
“Funny how things never turn out the way you think they will. Our midwife said that since he was preterm, we needed to head to the hospital so we could be monitored,” she explained.
“Five days later we were released [and] are happily dealing with sleep deprivation, a very hearty set of lungs, poop, barf and pee ’round the clock [while being] blissed out on baby!”
Drop Dead Diva returns to Lifetime on Sunday, October 6 at 9/8c.
