The couple had revealed they were pregnant in July with the distant early warning, "Coming Soon Baby Buckner December 2018."

They also posted video from their gender reveal, which confirmed Baby Buckner was expected to be a bouncing baby boy.

In November, the first-time mom revealed on "Family Vacation" that she had had some trouble with her pregnancy, saying, "Last week, I had a scare... I get emotional because it’s scary. I just started bleeding, but I’m fine... Honestly, the scariest moment in my life. I was a nervous wreck, but Chris was so calm, thank God."

Thankfully, some bed rest did the trick and their son was born as expected β€” though they missed the birth month by that much.
