Angela Simmons is officially a mom!

The daughter of Run-D.M.C’s Rev. Run took to Instagram to announce the arrival of her first child, a baby boy, on Thursday.

“The best part of life has just begun #Motherhood #ImSoInLove,” the first-time mom captioned a photo of her holding her newborn son.

Simmons, 29, is a hip hop socialite, model and fashion designer, and most recently starred in the WeTV reality series Growing Up Hip Hop.

In the weeks leading up to Simmons’ son’s big debut, the reality star was showered with love during a regal-themed baby bash.

“Today was filled so much love … Friends and family !!! Wow thank you everyone who came today,” the mom-to-be wrote alongside a photo of her posing in front of the cake table during the shower.

Speculations about Simmons’ pregnancy began in early May, and she confirmed the news on Instagram later that month.

“We are overjoyed and super excited to receive a blessing this big! Starting a family was something that I could have only dreamed of,” Simmons captioned a photo of her baby bump.

In June, the mom-to-be shared a snap of her ultrasound — and simultaneously announced the sex of her baby on the way. “I can’t wait to kiss your little toes baby boy,” she wrote.

A month before her official pregnancy reveal, Simmons took to social media to announce her engagement.

“YES!! I couldn’t be more excited. This is only something I could of only dreamed of. I’m over the moon and feeling so blessed to be able to share my life with the one I truly love. Everything happened in the most perfect way,” she wrote on Instagram.

Everyone; please be respectful to one another. If you do not have anything nice to say, then keep the negativity to oneself.

“One Love.”
