“The Challenge” family has gotten a little bigger this week as two-time finalist Kyle Christie welcomed his first child, a baby boy, with partner Vicky Turner. Kyle announced the birth of his son, Crew Jax Christie, on Instagram, writing, “Welcome to the world Crew you are so loved, we couldn’t [have] asked for a more perfect little boy. Mam & Dad love you so much.” Baby Crew was born just before 4 p.m. on September 13, 2021, a week after his due date.
Kyle’s post continued, “They say 13 is unlucky for some but he was always destined to be, judging by my tattoo. Thank you to @vickelizabethx for bringing this perfect little man into our lives, you honestly have done an extraordinary job from start to finish. I honestly don’t know how you women do it, you’re all incredible…..my little family.” Here is the post:
Vicky also posted about her baby’s birth, writing, “Our sweet angel, Crew Jax Christie. Born 13/09/21 at 15:57 and completing our little family. They say 13 is unlucky for some but clearly you were always meant to be, judging by Daddy’s tattoo. Special mention to @kylecgshore for being my rock through the whole thing, couldn’t have done it without you.”
