Hunter McGrady is a mom of two! The Model Citizen podcast cohost and her husband, Brian Keys, welcomed a baby girl to their family. They are already parents to a 1-year-old son, Hudson.

McGrady shared the sweetest video on Instagram, writing that her newborn daughter, Ava Bryn Keys, was born on March 9 and weighed in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces.

“My baby girl came into this world fiercely and commanding attention, as I pray you will forever do,” the 29-year-old captioned a March 12 post that she shared with her 717,000 followers. “I pray that every room you enter you take up space, you live fearlessly, and always honor yourself.”

The video featured baby Ava wrapped in a floral blanket and wearing a pink bow-embellished hat while sleeping in a crib at the hospital. The clip was set to the sound of an acoustic version of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Jae Hall.

“We are so blessed to have you here with us my beautiful, beautiful girl. I could stare at you forever and it still wouldn’t be long enough,” McGrady, who is a five-time SI Swimsuit model, continued. “Bryn is her middle name just like her grandma/ my mom (Brynja)who is someone i have always wanted to emulate, I am forever in awe of her and oh how i know she is going to be just as much of a force of nature. We are Just basking in your presence Angel girl! I am so proud to be your mama 💖.”
