Emily DiDonato is a mom of two! The six-time SI Swimsuit model and her husband, Kyle Peterson, welcomed their newborn son, Oliver, on Thursday. The two are already parents to their daughter Teddy, who was born in November 2021.

The Covey skin-care co-founder posted an adorable black-and-white photo from the hospital. DiDonato held Oliver to her chest with her eyes closed while Peterson looked on from the bedside.

“Welcome to the world sweet Oliver,” she captioned the Instagram post she shared with her 2.8 million followers. “❤️ Born as perfect as could be on 4/27/23 at 9 lbs 4 Oz.”

Tons of celebrity friends and fellow models, including Gigi Hadid, Brooks Nader, Nicole Williams English and others, congratulated the couple on their expanding family.

“Welcome to Mother Earth, Oliver! Congratulations Emily,” Cris Urena commented.

“Congratulations!!!! ❤️❤️ been thinking of you,” wrote Martha Hunt. “Also hi Oliver, Taurus bday twin!”

DiDonato tagged New York City-based birth doula and counselor Terry Richmond in the post. 

The 32-year-old first announced the news of her pregnancy in a moving joint post between her personal IG account and Covey’s last October.

“Introducing the NEWEST Covey addition x2!!🕊🕊️🤍” the brand wrote, alongside a video promoting a new product, the Last Drop Body Lotion. DiDonato rubbed the lotion on her baby bump and then showed a clip of Teddy wearing a “Big Sister” shirt.
