"Sylvester Apollo Bear has joined us earth side," she wrote. "Sly arrived 3/8/21 on the most surreal, beautiful, and love-filled morning of my life."

After sharing the news of their precious new addition, Emily's celebrity pals rushed to show their love.

"Congratulations sweet family," Bella Hadid commented, while Ashley Graham added, "Welcome to the world Sly!"

Emily first announced their baby news with a cover shoot for Vogue magazine back in October.

At the time, the star said that she and her producer husband were always met with the same question about the baby's sex.

Plus, they had decided to raise their child in a "gender-neutral household".

"When my husband and I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after 'Congratulations' is almost always 'Do you know what you want?' We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then," she wrote.

"Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who - rather than what - is growing inside my belly."

Meanwhile, she also opened up on dealing with "loneliness" while pregnant.

She added, "Pregnancy is innately lonely; it’s something a woman does by herself, inside her body, no matter what her circumstances may be."

And now the little one is here!
