Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn has announced the birth of her first child with husband Christian Richard.

Christine, 31, welcomed a baby son, named Christian Georges Dumontet, on Saturday 15 May at 4.22pm, according to People.

The star of the hit Netflix reality series shared the news with the publication and said being a mum is the “most incredible feeling”.

Christine said of her new addition: “Baby C is more precious that I could have ever imagined. Nine months seems like a lifetime to wait to meet someone.

“It is the most incredible feeling to know that you have created life. My protective mama bear mentality is stronger than ever. My sole job is to protect him, to love him and to raise him.”

The real estate agent also opened up on the birth of her first child and said he was born in a “dramatic fashion”.

Describing her waters breaking, the new mum explained: “It was a giant gush of fluid, just like in the movies.

“I wrapped a towel around my waist and off we went to the hospital. Twenty-two minutes later, Baby C was born via emergency c-section performed by Dr. Steve A. Rad. He was incredible under the pressure and complexity of the situation.”

Netflix star Christine, who recently said she's "desperate" to meet Gemma Collins, credited her husband for being her “rock” during the birth.

She gushed: “He was very calm throughout the whole process. One day I might share more about what happened, but for right now, I am humbled and grateful that three of us came home from the hospital”.

Christine welcomed her baby boy just two days after attending filming for MTV Movie & TV Awards: UNSCRIPTED on Thursday, 13 May.

New mum Christine announced her pregnancy in February this year, more than a year after she and Christian wed in a breath-taking ceremony in Los Angeles, which was captured in an episode of Selling Sunset.

The star previously spoke of plans to raise her child as gender neutral in an exclusive chat with OK!.

She revealed: “Obviously, when the little angel comes out we will know what he or she is and we’re sticking to a group of names that are pretty universal and really not putting too much emphasis on gender.

“Regardless, if they’re a boy or a girl our nursery is still neutral and it will remain that way until we have further discussions when the child is older.

“I just think people put too much emphasis on male or female, and in the world these days there is so much more to that and more important things.”
