A future Top Chef hopeful has arrived!

Stephanie Izard and her husband Gary Valentine welcomed their first child, son Ernie William Valentine, on Thursday, May 26, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Born at 6:29 a.m. in Chicago, Ernie weighed in at 8 lbs., 1 oz. and measured 21 inches long.

“Ernie has his dad’s blue eyes and my nose, so he’s a nice little mix of both of us,” Izard, 39, tells PEOPLE. “And then he peed on the nurse…”

The Top Chef season 4 winner and Valentine, a craft-beer consultant, confirmed the news of their first child’s upcoming arrival exclusively to PEOPLE in February. The big news caught them “a little by surprise,” Izard said, since they’d just started trying to become parents.

“I’m pretty sure I screamed [Valentine’s] name while holding the pregnancy test in my hand with a little disbelief,” she shared.
