Brooklyn was born at 5:17 pm, weighing 7 pounds 15 ounces and was 21 inches long. Big brother Camden, 2, is also excited to welcome his little sis to the family. Vanessa wrote that she “has already won over all of our hearts.”

After announcing they were expecting in July, the couple has been patiently waiting to meet their daughter. She continued: “I have been dreaming of this moment for as long as I can remember, the day I was going to meet my little girl. A friend recently told me how magical today was going to be because it’s the day I would meet my best friend.”
