It’s a boy for Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Roger Mathews.

The couple’s second child, son Greyson Valor Mathews, arrived at 6:03 p.m. on Thursday, May 5, the former reality star announced via Instagram. He weighed 7 lbs., 2 oz. and joins big sister Meilani Alexandra, 21 months.

“So blessed to welcome our precious son,” Farley, 30, wrote. “He arrived healthy at 6:03pm tonight and the most beautiful part is Roger got to deliver him with our doctor. Our family is complete!”

Added Mathews, “What an amazing experience to literally witness the miracle of life from the very onset. He’s our little man, our perfect bundle of joy, the baby brother to an anxious little girl ready to met her Bubba. What a ride this this thing called life is ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for the love and support for our newest chapter. We are blessed and we pray health and happiness finds you in reading this.”

On Friday, the couple shared the first photo of their son on Farley’s JWoww app.

The pair broke the baby news on their wedding day last October, revealing at the reception that they were expecting baby number two.

Yesterday at 6:03 pm (with the help of my assistant Dr. Rezai and my wonderful staff) I delivered our 7lb 2ounce son Greyson Valor Mathews into the world. Moments after my wife @jwoww water broke Dr. Rezai looked at me and said "Scrub up Stat ! You're gonna deliver your son." Ok so I made up the "Scrub up Stat" part but In my head he said it. Life is only gonna offer you opportunities like this once so you better capitalize on it. I would describe the experience like doing 3 back to back combat tours in Iraq while winning the Nobel Peace Prize simultaneously. What an amazing experience to literally witness the miracle of life from the very onset. He's our little man, our perfect bundle of joy, the baby brother to an anxious little girl ready to met her Bubba. What a ride this thing called life is ladies and gentlemen. Thank you for the love and support for our newest chapter. We are blessed and we pray health and happiness finds you in reading this.

The former Jersey Shore star revealed the baby’s sex last October in a post on her website and noted that she has always wanted a boy.

“Roger and I have said from the beginning that, just like it was with Meilani, it does not matter which [sex] our baby is, as long as he or she is healthy,” Farley wrote.

“Still, we are so excited to be expecting a baby BOY! It’s amazing knowing that we are having one of each, just like Nicole [“Snooki” Polizzi]. I’ve always said I wanted a boy. I think there is something to be said about a mother-and-son bond.”

E! News was first to announce the birth.

Comparing assisting the doctor with the delivery, to 3 back to back tours in Iraq, is going to piss a lot of people off. You cannot possibly compare the two. And her birth announcement asks people to download her app…I just don’t get it. Not the time Jenni. They need to announce the birth , their happiness and let people congratulate them. Skip the rest.

gymluv, have you got anything else you want to criticize the happy couple for? Maybe the color of their eyes? Their smiles are too large? They are too happy to suit you? Good grief, everyone else understands what he was trying to say…maybe you’ve never delivered any baby for the first time, let alone your own baby. Sheesh…what would happen if you people just said, “congrats! So happy for you and your family!” So judgmental….
