Rebecca Minkoff‘s midwife had a hunch — and she was right!

The fashion designer, 30, and husband Gavin Bellour welcomed son Luca Shai on Sunday, Sept. 28, the new mom Tweeted.

“I just pushed a 6 lb, 14 oz baby out,” she wrote. “OMG. I can’t believe this is done!”

Shortly after sharing the big announcement, Minkoff proudly showed off “the cutest family in the world,” posting a picture of Bellour cuddling their new baby boy.

Minkoff, famous for her Morning After bag, married Bellour in June 2009.

I am about to push my first baby out too, after a previous emergency c-section and a planned c-section…and I can hardly believe that it’s done! I am looking forward to hearing his name!

Congrats to her, but I don’t like the comment about pushing out the baby. It sounds crass to me.

“I just pushed a 6 lb, 14 oz baby out,” she wrote. Very odd post to say the least.

I don’t know who she is, but her hubby is hot!

Honestly…I don’t think there’s anything crass about that statement. that’s exactly what she did! And it really is still amazing to me that women ARE able to do that. Good for her and her lovely little family!

Nothing strange about her comment to me – she’s just proud and in awe of her accomplishment! And, it’s Twitter, not the birth announcement section of a reputable newspaper!! Im sure she’ll keep it classy and demure for the real announcements. Congrats to the family!

I can relate to what she’s saying. When you’ve just given birth, you are amazed at the event that just took place and that you didn’t die in the process, lol!

Well correct me if I’m wrong but you do “push” when you birth a baby right??? I think she was trying to be funny not crass with her statement.’s a joyful moment that doesn’t necessarily need to be expressed in a serious way.

Congrats to her & the hubby!!!

Congratulations to the new parents! I agree with the above poster, her husband is a looker. Seems like she will have a little heartbreaker on her hands in a feew years time.

Also, my first comment was never published. All I did was point out the spelling error lol.

Congratulations to Rebecca and Gavin on the birth of their son!

As for her announcement, I agree with the others who said they find nothing crass about it. That’s exactly what happened.

Never heard of this woman before, not a fashion nut!, but love the name, Luca’s my nephew’s middle name and think it’s sweet. I would’ve guess she was mid-late 30’s, not 30, but may just be an unflattering late-pregnancy pic!

Omg he was so little 🙂 all my babies were 8 pounds or more. And i pushed them all out.

But that’s besides the point 🙂

Such a sweet family. Love his name too. Very sweet.

Welcome to the world Luca Shai Bellour.

Beautiful name!

Lisette, I am sick of being Jillian. I think its hilarious that this page just assigns names to people when they don’t pick one when they could be weeding out nasty comments. Although, I havent seen any in awhile.
