“The Challenge” star Camila Nakagawa, 31, is a mom to a baby boy!
Camila told E! News, “At 7 lbs, 4oz. and 20 inches, Kai Aiden is the most perfect little human I have ever met. It was love at first sight and I cannot wait to get to know him and for all of the unforgettable memories we will create together.”
Nakagawa also opened up about her labor and delivery, telling the outlet, “It was not a natural birth as I had planned, and I had to have an emergency C-section after my water broke.”
She added, “I feel very happy that [my] baby got to choose his own birthday.”
As for welcoming a child during the COVID-19 pandemic, she said, “Even though it has been such an unpredictable time in our world, I am so blessed to have had a wonderful pregnancy and a safe and healthy delivery.”
Nakagawa is ready for her life to change with Kai’s arrival. She gushed, “I never thought life could be this complete... Hearing his little cry when he came out was the best moment of my entire life, and then seeing his little face just changed my life forever. It feels like nothing can ever go wrong again. Life is simply perfect.”
Camila has been documenting her pregnancy on her Instagram. Over the past few months, she’s been posting countless pics of her baby bump.
Nakagawa announced she was expecting for her first child in February, just weeks before the COVID-19 pandemic hit the nation. At the time, she told People magazine, “I am pregnant and bringing a baby into the world in the summer of 2020. Having a child and being a mother is going to help me look at the world with a whole new perspective… and I cannot wait for it.”
She didn’t reveal the identity of the baby’s father, but noted that he “is someone that is in my life and that I admire and care for very much, and he will make a great father.”
While it was an unplanned pregnancy, Camila shared, “I used to say I don’t think I’m ever going to have kids because the world we live in is just a lot right now. But I think this came because it was meant to be, and I’m very excited. This is the best decision I’ve ever made.”
