Congratulations to Jillian Harris and Justin Pasutto on the arrival of their baby boy! The Canadian star took to Instagram on Saturday (Aug. 6) to share the happy news alongside an adorable photo of her newborn son. "World, meet little Leo..." wrote the 36-year-old, adding, "Queue heart explosion❤."
Speaking with Hello! Canada, the new mom opened up about the first few days of life with Leo: "We are both are so excited to be parents and are overjoyed with all of the love that has already been pouring in for Leo.
Parenting so far has been beyond what we could have ever imagined or planned. We can’t wait to go camping with Leo next weekend and are so excited to take him on all of our adventures to come."
Following her son's birth, Jillian shared a beautiful black and white snap of her new family of three, captioned, "When your heart goes BOOM. I can't believe the love. @slipperygoose we made a pretty beautiful miracle ❤❤❤."
She later posted a heartwarming photo of herself resting with baby Leo. "I've never done so little in 3 days and felt like I've accomplished SO much," she wrote, before joking, "Ok aside from the actual delivery of this little nugget because THAT was intense."
Last month, the mom-to-be invited Hello! Canada along to her surprise baby shower in Vancouver. "It was unreal!” gushed the bubbly Love It or List It star. “I’ve never seen anything like it before in my life.” And while Jillian decided not to find our her baby's sex, it's clear that her instincts were on point. "We swear it’s a boy. But we have no reason to think that. We just think it’s a boy," she told us at the time.
When asked what she is most looking forward to about being a mom, Jillian said, "Having the opportunity to bring a human into the world and raise them to be something that’s really spectacular. No pressure for the baby. [ Laughs] If they decide to flip burgers and play video games, that’s fine, too. But I want to do my best to raise somebody who has a great work ethic and values and a huge heart and just wants to give back."
