Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita is a grandma!

The 46-year-old revealed Tuesday that her daughter, Ashlee Holmes, gave birth to her first child: a son, Cameron Hendrix Malleo.

“Welcome Cameron Hendrix Malleo ! Born at 5:20pm ! He’s going to go get a bath and get weighed now!” Laurita captioned a photo of the newborn and his father, Pete Malleo.

“XOXO!!! 8lbs 4oz 20 inches Cameron Hendrix Malleo,” she penned of a second photo of the father and son.

Laurita and Holmes both documented the day with updates on Twitter, sharing that the new mother’s water broke earlier in the day. “23 hours of labor followed by 1 hour and a half of pushing… but it was worth it. My lil man is finally here,” Holmes tweeted.

Eye roll on

I’m sorry, but she only found out in March? Sounds more like she doesn’t want people to think that’s why she got engaged.

That was quick. I’m pretty sure Ashley was pregnant when her fiancΓ© asked him to marry her. Guess they had to keep that secret off the show.
