It's a boy!

Supermodel Natalia Vodianova has given birth to her fourth child, her first with boyfriend Antoine Arnault. The couple welcomed a baby boy, whom they named Maxim, in the early hours of Friday morning and shared news with fans via Twitter and Instagram, posting an adorable shot of their bundle of joy's tiny little foot.

"Last night at 2.45am was born our baby boy Maxim, living up to the definition of his name: he was born an incredible 4.2kg (9 lbs. 2 oz) and 55cm (21.6 inches)," the proud mama captioned the sweet shot from inside the hospital. "The baby and I are doing beautifully well to the delight of the proud Daddy."

She added: "Thank you for all your good wishes, I would now like to pass them on to all women who are still expecting. Enjoy every minute of it S)"

The Russian supermodel and CEO of luxury men's footwear maker Berluti announced they were expecting in November, taking to Facebook to share the happy news.

"Giving a little brother or sister to Natalia's 3 wonderful children is something we wanted so much: AND NOW IT'S HAPPENING! :)))" Vodianova's French beau wrote. "We're going to have our first baby next year!!! #4 for her but #1 for me... I'm a little stressed! She was tired the first 3 months but is fine now..."

Arnault added: "I hope he or she gets Mommy's looks (and beautiful heart!!!) and Daddy's sense of humor!!! Pleaaaaase not the other way around!!! :))))"

The 31-year-old beauty separated from husband Justin Portman in June 2011. The former couple was married for 10 years and are parents to three children: sons Lucas, 12, Viktor, 6, and daughter Neva, 8.

Vodianova, who has modeled for Vogue countless times, has also posed for brands such as Guerlain, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, L'Oréal, David Yurman, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Versace, Diane von Fürstenberg, Chanel, Guerlain and Etam.

Congrats to the happy couple!
