Married at first sight mother and father! Jessica Studer and Austin Hurd welcomed their first child on Wednesday, November 3.
The couple named their son Westin Paul Hurd. He weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces and measured 20 inches.
The reality stars announced in July that they were going to start a family. “From the moment we said I will, we wanted to get to this point,” the 34-year-old Maryland resident wrote in his Instagram announcement at the time. “A next chapter in our lives will begin soon with a new character. More than excited for what’s to come.”
In the social media upload, the network engineer wore a shirt that read, “Did you HURD the news?” He was holding a “daddy” hat, while his wife was holding a matching “mom” hat. Her T-shirt read, “We’re expecting!”
The Ohio resident shared the news with an ultrasound image, writing, “It’s true! I can’t wait to meet baby H this fall.”
The former Lifetime personalities, who appeared in Season 10 of MAFS, celebrated a joint baby shower in October. “Thank you to all the family and friends for coming out and supporting us at the baby shower!” the father-to-be captioned an Instagram slideshow. “I can’t believe we’re less than a month away to meet baby H.”
The pregnant star continued to share the progress of her baby bump with her Instagram followers, from beach trips in September to a run in October.
That same month, she and Hurd revealed the gender of their little one on an episode of Married at first sight: Cam for couples.
“My prediction is correct. We will soon have a son,” the mother-to-be said at the time. “I am very happy. It feels very surreal and exciting and crazy at the same time.”
Her husband chimed in: “All these things are going through my head about things I want to teach him. Everything just fell on me.”
The couple tied the knot in August 2019 and they celebrated their second anniversary earlier this year. “Happy 2nd anniversary of marriage and knowing each other,” the nurse manager gushed via Instagram in August. “Wouldn’t change this day or how we met!”
Hurd called their marriage “a blur” in a July 2020 Instagram post, telling his social media followers: “There’s so much I don’t remember…but there’s one thing I do remember and that’s her.” . I love you @jessica_studer.”
