Kandi Burruss may have just delivered one of her greatest hits yet!

E! News can confirm the Real Housewives of Atlanta star welcomed her first child with husband Todd Tucker Wednesday. Tucker had posted a picturetaken inside the hospital that morning. "Getting ready for Baby Tucker 1.6.16!" he wrote on Instagram. "I can't wait to meet my little man!"

"Todd and I have been waiting so long for his delivery and he is so very perfect," Burruss told People. The couple's "bouncing baby boy" arrived at 8:42 a.m., weighing in at 7 lbs., 6 oz.

It's a happy ending for a couple that admitted their newborn would serve as a "blessing for a new beginning." In fact, the reality star previously revealed to E! News that she had started the process of in-vitro in hopes of expanding her family.

"Just pray for us that everything is great and we get a healthy baby!" she told us back in April. "My family definitely, they definitely want a baby for me and Todd."

Fast-forward to this summer where both Kandi and her husband had exciting news to share with relatives, co-stars and fans alike.

"We're so thrilled to announce the news of our bundle of joy, it's a dream come true," the woman behind the record label Kandi Koated told E! News. Todd added, "Our daughters, Kaela and Riley, couldn't be happier about becoming big sisters."

Throughout the past few months, the 39-year-old admitted to enjoying an easy pregnancy without any cravings. In between appointments with Married to Medicine's Dr. Jackie, Kandi even got to experience two baby showers featuring her closest friends from Bravo and beyond.

And while it's been awhile since Kandi has had to take care of a newborn, a little preparation beforehand has us thinking everything is going to be a-okay for this happy family.

"Todd and I, we took like a quick, little class of getting prepared for baby," she told Bravo TV. "I haven't seen a baby in 13 years. I'm just kidding! I've seen one, but I haven't really had to keep a baby in so long, so I needed a refresher course."

Congratulations to the couple on their newest family member!
