Nev Schulman can officially add daddy to his resume!

E! News can confirm the Catfish creator and his fiancée Laura Perlongo welcomed their baby girl, Cleo James, into the world on Friday.

Both Schulman and Perlongo took to Instagram to share the exciting news. The new mama posted the photo above, writing, "I don't remember this photo being taken or anything about the last 24 hours but bb girl has finally arrived."

She continued, "Completely enamored with 6lb 10oz Cleo James born this morning at 6:01. She's everything."

The Catfish host and creator also shared a sweet photo of Cleo in his arms.  "Best. Thing. Ever. Cleo James arrived at 6:01am weighing 6lbs 10oz," he wrote. "Shout out to my baby mama @el_peego for delivering this bundle of joy."

Meanwhile, Schulman has been anxiously counting down the days for his little one to make her way into the world, sharing lots of photos on Instagram of the countdown to her birth.

For example, on Wednesday, he took to Instagram to share a photo of himself sitting on a stool in a garage, waiting for his little girl. "Still waiting for my baby like..." he captioned the photo.

Last week, the TV personality also shared an adorable photo of his fiancée in a bath tub, turning her belly into a deserted island. "Baby's due any day now! totally obsessed with this woman but definitely going to miss this adorable baby bump," he gushed.

The couple first announced they were expecting a baby girl in May as Schulman took to Instagram to spread the news. He posted a very happy photo of Perlongo getting an ultrasound as he holds her hand and kisses her forehead. "IT'S A GIRL! No words can capture the excitement and joy I feel about becoming a father," he wrote. "I am so in love with you @el_peego and thank you for giving me this incredible gift. You inspire and excite me every day."

Less than two weeks later, the Catfish host asked Perlongo to marry him.

He Instagrammed a selfie, while the bride-to-be posted a photo showing off her new bling. The goofy snap featured Perlongo feeding Nev what appeared to be some type of deli meat. She appropriately captioned the shot, "It's all v serious now."
