Big Brother's Christmas Abbott Gives Birth, Welcomes First Child, a Baby Boy With Boyfriend Benjamin Bunn

Updated On 10 Oct, 2018 Published On

Christmas Abbott and Benjamin Bunn are now parents! The 'Big Brother' alum and his loving boyfriend have welcomed their first child, a baby, together and the couple has named their son Loyal Atticus.

Of the birth of the latest addition of the family, the new mom told Entertainment Tonight,

My family has a history of strong and unique names, so I wanted to follow suit. I chose his first name, Loyal, because I believe it will guide him to have strong integrity through his life. It’s a reminder that family comes first, which is why it is his first name. I chose his second name, Atticus, from the Greek educator and philosopher to embrace balance and fairness through understanding. Neither is a family name but I hope he will embrace his name as his own and follow the greatness he can bring to this world through love, understanding, and fair action.

Congratulations Christmas and Benjamin!

As previously reported, the television personality, 36, surprised fans in March when she announced that she and fellow fitness star were expecting their first child via Instagram.

She wrote at the time, Well, I’ve always expected the unexpected and this year is no different! In January I discovered I am actually EXPECTING and a whole new life would be laid out for me”.

She added, she is “over the moon excited about this wild, new journey.”

Even with the increased discomfort, challenge to simply put on socks, constant pain one way or another, I absolutely love being pregnant and being this lil man’s ultimate protector right now. I am his safe, vehicle, bed and playground. I am his whole world and no matter how tough this process gets for me, knowing that and having that responsibility, is the ultimate gift and privilege that I will not take for granted.

I’ve always had a thing for the color blue ?? 5 weeks and counting! I can’t get enough of his wiggles and rumbles. It’s so frequent now. I love it! I could just sit, feel him wiggle and read to him all day everyday. I’ve been nesting and finalizing ordering all the things I need for him. There’s so many cool things and crazy cute outfits. I’m sticking to the essentials because I keep receiving incredible gifts for him!! THANK YOU EVERYONE! My activity level has slowed down tremendously. I can 1-2 major tasks a day with tons of rest between. Nothing is fast anymore, even my eating. I know my body is preparing me for him to keep me up all night feeding and loving him but I’d really like a decent night of sleep. That went out the window at least three weeks ago and hasn’t returned. ?? I’ve become calmer and happier over the last week anticipating his arrival. Even with the anxiety of life and bullshit I’m having to deal with, it all is nothing compared to my excitement to meet him, love him, and be his mother. It’s already the best job in the world! Due date: October 6 Name: Only momma knows Sleep: Few and far between Gratitude Level: Off the charts Craving: Nesting & cereal ??‍?? #35weekspregnant #badassmomma #badassbaby #buildingabadass #bestjobever
