Lynn Smith is reporting her own happy news: she’s a mom!

The Weekend Express with Lynn Smith host welcomed her first child, a son, with husband Graham Smith on Friday, Feb. 5, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Lochlan Owens Smith was born weighing 8 lbs., 15 oz., and measured 21.2 inches long.

On Sunday, Smith, 36, shared a family photo on Instagram to announce the arrival of her baby boy.

“Happy Super Bowl Sunday from our future Linebacker … Tall, dark and handsome like his Daddy. And just like that … life is complete,” she wrote.

Smith later shared a second sweet shot of her holding sleeping Lochlan on Monday, writing, “We just wanted to thank you for all the sweet notes for baby Lochlan. He’s such a happy little one and appreciates all the love. Have a great week!”

In September, the mom-to-be — who wed Smith in Highlands, North Carolina, in April — used a throwback photo of her wedding to announce they had a baby on the way.

“#FBF to when we started this little family…that is now GROWING to 3!!! It is not lost on us how very lucky we are to be this little one’s Mom and Dad,” she captioned the picture.

Weekend Express with Lynn Smith airs Saturday and Sunday at 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. on HLN.
