Kristen Louelle is a mom of three! The 2021 Swim Search finalist’s family just grew as she and NFL running back Tyler Gaffney welcomed their first baby girl, Nala Belle Giovanna, on April 27. The two are already parents to two boys, Jaxon and Conway.

The Barely Filtered podcast cohost announced the news with an adorable Instagram video on May 7.

“Welcome to the world Nala Belle Giovanna Gaffney 💛,” Louelle wrote. “Born April 27 at 8 pounds 8 ounces, you are everything we prayed for & more. You are so beyond loved my little fierce lioness. Thank you for choosing us 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽.”

Louelle kept the birth secret for a few days as she soaked in the first few moments with her newborn. She shared a stunning series of throwback photos from her babymoon with the whole family in Mexico last month.

In the cover snap, she donned a cute brown bikini with a wavy stripe pattern and lounged in a beanbag atop a netted hammock overlooking the magnificent Hilton Los Cabos resort and beach. In the next photo, she sat on a poolside chair and cradled her baby bump.

“Currently craving: 🍹🇲🇽🥑🌮,” Louelle cleverly captioned the May 4 post she shared with her 81,000 followers.

Louelle also included a glowy beach selfie, a snapshot of her morning coffee and pics of her sons.

“Beautiful ❤️,” commented Natalie Gage.

“The GLOW🔥🔥,” wrote Rachael Maurer.

“I feel like you having the baby on cinco de Mayo and indulging in a spicy margarita is so on brand it HAS to happen 🌶️,” one fan joked.

“Living your best life,” added Jordan Elizabeth. “And I’m here for it ❤️👏.”
