She wrote: "It’s official! I’m a mommy! Baby C made his grand entrance over the weekend. I am beyond grateful to my husband, and to all the wonderful doctors and nurses who helped me. It was a little scary, but we are beyond grateful."

Clearly named after his dad, Quinn revealed to PEOPLE that her little boy's name is Christian Georges Dumontet, and that he was born last Saturday, May 15th, and weighed 6 lbs, 14 oz.

"Baby C is more precious than I could have ever imagined. Nine months seems like a lifetime to wait to meet someone," the Netflix star said.

"It is the most incredible feeling to know that you have created life. My protective mama bear mentality is stronger than ever. My sole job is to protect him, to love him and to raise him."

She added: "Let's just say he was born with good taste. He has a closet filled with designer outfits that I cannot wait to dress him in!"

The brand new mum revealed that her water broke just after she came home to relax from filming season four of Selling Sunset.

"It was a giant gush of fluid, just like in the movies," she recalled. "I wrapped a towel around my waist and off we went to the hospital. Twenty-two minutes later, Baby C was born via emergency c-section. Baby C was very eager to make his appearance in this world and in dramatic fashion — he got that from his mommy."

Quinn, who is set to appear in season four and five of Selling Sunset soon, said her husband was her "rock" during the birth.

"He was very calm throughout the whole process. One day I might share more about what happened, but for right now, I am humbled and grateful that three of us came home from the hospital," she says.

"It was the most magical moment of my life," Quinn adds of holding her baby for the first time. "Suddenly, there is a tiny human in my arms. It was surreal when I was finally able to hold him and kiss his little nose. I can't believe that we created this little miracle."
