Hunter McGrady welcomes first child

·1-min read

Hunter McGrady has become a first-time mum.

The plus-size model revealed that her and her husband Brian Keys had welcomed their new arrival, a baby boy, by sharing a picture of the newborn clutching onto her finger on her Instagram Stories on Sunday.

"I've never known a love like this. I've been enjoying and in pure bliss. Can't wait to introduce you guys to this sweet boy," she wrote in the caption, followed by a blue heart emoji.

The Sports Illustrated model didn't divulge the baby's name or share any details regarding the boy's birth.

The 28-year-old announced she was pregnant in March, and in June, she revealed she caught Covid-19 when she was seven months pregnant after doing an outdoor photoshoot.

"It was only a four-person set and they were far away, and I caught Covid and I gave it to my husband," she confessed on an episode of her Model Citizen podcast. "I was freaking out. We did lose our smell. I'm still like having issues with smell, which is so bizarre."

She went on to reveal that she was diagnosed with preeclampsia – a potentially fatal condition that causes high blood pressure – shortly after her Covid battle.

"So it was Covid... then I got diagnosed with preeclampsia, then I lost my little brother," she said, referring to her 23-year-old brother Tynan, who died in a car accident in May. "Needless to say, pregnancy has been a wild ride."

The new arrival marks the first child for Hunter and Brian, while he has a daughter from a previous marriage.

They have been married since 2019.
