DWTS pro Witney Carson has welcomed her first child with her husband, Carson McAllister.
The dancer, 27, gave birth to a baby boy on Monday after a "hellish" 24-hour labor and an "unexpected c-section".
Witney shared a sweet black and white photo of her and Carson holding hands with their newborn on Instagram.
"After a really hard 24 hour labor, and an unexpected c-section… we are all healthy and well," she wrote alongside it.
"We are so grateful & we’ve been soaking up every moment with our perfect angel boy. Thank you for all the prayers!"
Witney wrote on her Instagram Story on Sunday night: "Contractions are actual hell but the epidural is heaven…. so I'm doing great."
A day earlier, the choreographer showed off her bump in a hospital bed and wrote: "Alright baby boy, let’s do this."
Last week, Witney marveled at how big her bump was at 39 weeks pregnant and said she was "done" with pregnancy.
"Passed by this mirror today and couldn’t believe how big this boy has gotten," the professional Latin ballroom dancer wrote.
"I’m officially DONE & so ready to meet him! Any suggestions on how to start this labor?! #39weeksonsunday."
Witney and Carson – who married in 2016 – announced their pregnancy in July while sharing a photo of the baby's sonogram and a positive pregnancy test.
Witney – who won DWTS with Alfonso Ribeiro back in 2014 – celebrated the pregnancy in November with a baby shower in Utah.
"Family has meant everything to me throughout this pregnancy," Witney told People at the time.
"Through all the emotional ups and downs, they have stood by my side to help me through it. So much good advice and love for me and baby."
She added: "Carson, my husband, has been especially amazing! I couldn't do this without him.
"He really is my rock and I couldn't be more grateful for his compassion and patience."
They tied the knot at Salt Lake Temple in Salt Lake City and celebrated their five-year wedding anniversary on Friday.
