Kwan revealed the news on Instagram, where she also shared the first picture of her daughter, Kalista Belle Kwan, as well as a montage clip of her pregnancy.
“I’m overjoyed and tears of happiness are streaming down my face as I share the news of the arrival of Kalista Belle Kwan!” she wrote in the post’s caption. “I’ve always wanted to be a mom and, to me, she’s a perfect miracle.”
“I had a hard time picturing what she might look like yet it seems like she’s been in my life forever. This has been a challenging journey to motherhood (not to mention a very long labor!!!) and I’m glad I never gave up.”
After thanking everyone in her life that supported her during this journey, Kwan shared that even though she “[tends] to keep my personal life private,” she also “wanted to share this happy news for many months.”
