Kim Spradlin is a new mom!

The Survivor: One World winner welcomed her first child, son Michael Thomas Wolfe, at 5:10 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8, she tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Michael weighed in at 6 lbs., 9 oz. and measures 21 inches long. Spradlin, 31, opted for a water birth at home attended by a midwife.

Michael’s arrival continues a run of good fortune for the reality star. In 2012, she won the million-dollar prize on Survivor: One World. The next year, she married Bryan Wolfe in a boho chic wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Although Spradlin made winning Survivor look easy, she admits that childbirth was a challenge.

“Whoa, that was hard!” Spradlin, who announced her pregnancy last July, tells PEOPLE. “But of course, he’s awesome and I love him so much. And Dad would like to add that he is also doing great and is only slightly traumatized!”
