And baby makes five!

Plus-sized model Anansa Sims, 35, welcomed her third child with husband David Patterson, she announced on Twitter Monday.

“On [Friday,] June 20th we welcomed Dean Danny Benjamin Patterson at 2:28 pm,” she wrote.

Baby boy weighed in at 8 lbs., 12 oz., and was 22½ inches long.

Sims and the former NFL player are also parents to son David Bernard III, 19 months, and daughter Ava, 2½.

The model mama announced the pregnancy in January, first sharing a snapshot of her ultrasound on social media and then Tweeting her mom, former supermodel Beverly Johnson, the exciting news.

“The Bible says be fruitful and multiply!” she wrote.
