Kat Von D and husband Leafar Seyer welcomed a baby boy yesterday!
“Meet our beautiful baby boy, Leafar Von D Reyes,” Von D wrote on Instagram. “Thank you to all our beloved friends+family, fans+followers for your patience in us announcing his long awaited arrival. To be honest, my husband @prayers and I want to take the next 40 days [the 4th trimester] to focus on the baby and our amazing relationship transitioning into amazing parenthood — so, please excuse us if we’re not on here as much for a little while.”
We love that the couple and their new baby are taking time away from social media to nest and bond. New father Leafar also said on Instagram: “It might not look like it from the outside, but on the inside I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life.” He added: “I love you so much Kitty I’ve never seen anyone fight for anything the way you fought to bring our son into the world.”
Von D said early on in her pregnancy that she planned to have “a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula,” which caused a lot of drama in her own family. “My own Father flipped out on me when I told him we decided to ditch our doctor and go with a midwife instead. If you don’t know what it’s like have people around you think you are ridiculous, try being openly vegan. And, if you don’t know what it’s like to have the entire world openly criticize, judge, throw uninformed opinions, and curse you — try being an openly pregnant vegan on Instagram, having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations.”
That last comment caused even more drama too. But every parent has the right to raise their child in an environment they think is best. What we also love is how decked out baby Leafer is in his goth baby clothes!
How cute is his goth style?! He’ll clearly be the most stylish baby on the block. Would you expect any less from this rocker couple?
Congrats to the family!
