Deavan shared two photos of their sweet, newborn son on her Instagram page, writing “Our beautiful Taeyang Scuti Lee I am so blessed to have you in my life. Mommy loves you so much. I’m so happy I can finally show you to the world our amazing miracle you are so loved by mommy, daddy, and sissy.”
It sounds like Deavan had a rough time giving birth to Taeyang. The reality star added another picture of her baby boy early Tuesday morning, and the caption of the photo talked about how she was alone in the hospital for five days with Taeyang in NICU after he popped two holes in his lungs from screaming.
“This is a photo of the first time I was able to finally hold you,” she wrote on the photo below. “I had to have emergency c section at 36 weeks 2 weeks early from the original scheduled c section, when you came out you had pop two holes in your lungs from screaming to loud. It was a very difficult time for me I was all alone at the hospital for five days but I had you, I spent my entire hospital stay in a wheel chair next to your NICU bed holding your hand I didn’t sleep I just wanted to be near you to the point where nurses were begging me to rest. You are my everything I love you so much.”
“Having Taeyang was one of the scariest, most rewarding experiences of my life,” the Salt Lake City native told Us Weekly. “Him being in the NICU was the most difficult experience I had to face in my life.”
The couple has been keeping details of Taeyang’s birth, weight and name under wraps for the last few months. The couple had posted a few maternity pictures on social media since the show premiered in June, but they haven’t uploaded any pictures of the baby boy himself. However, Deavan did tell fans during a July Instagram Q&A that she and Jihoon chose to keep details about their son from the media on their own accord, and not because they were contractually obligated by TLC, although she did write that she was excited to “finally show [him] to the world” on tonight’s post.
When she was answering questions during the July Q&A, she told fans that she “wanted viewers to be introduced to him when he appeared on TV,” which finally happened during tonight’s episode of the show. Fans already knew the couple was expecting, as Jihoon and Deavan ended up getting pregnant during the first night they were together due to the incredibly “strong connection” they shared. It was just a matter of time before TLC aired the footage of Deavan going into labor.
Although the two were keeping relatively quiet about their son, Deavan did confirm that she gave birth to a baby boy, according to TV Shows Ace, and Starcasm correctly reported that their son’s name was Taeyang.
During the same Instagram Q&A, one fan asked if Deavan would be offended if Jihoon had asked for a DNA test. In reply, she wrote, “I’d be offended because we know the exact date of conception. But I would do it so I could say ‘I told you so.’” Additionally, Deavan gushed about how much Taeyang looked like his daddy, writing “he has never doubted, and our son is his twin.”
The reality star has also mentioned over the last few months that her eldest daughter Drascilla is “such a big help” and “the best big sister” to her new baby brother.
Jihoon too proudly posted a couple pictures of his son on Instagram this evening, writing a “finally,” with a smiley face and a series of hashtags as his caption, including #90dayfiance#90dayfiancetheotherway #tlc #baby#taeyang.
Jihoon was a bit more nervous as a first-time father, but he told Us Weekly that he is learning how to be a father, and that he couldn’t be more excited. “I’m very happy,” the 29-year-old shared. “I have no skills because I am a first-time father, but I will learn.”
“I hope to become the best father I can be. I’m nervous but I know I will be the best father,” Jihoon continued.
Tune in Mondays at 9/8c on TLC to catch Jihoon and Deavan’s continuing love story on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way.
