ali landry alejandro monteverde new baby son birth gi Ali Landry and Alejandro Monteverde welcome baby son

Ali Landry and husband Alejandro Monteverde welcomed a new baby son, Valentin Francesco Monteverde, this week. Landry gave birth to the 9-pound baby on Thursday (July 11).

Landry, a former model and actress, announced the birth news herself via Twitter:

“Enjoying my beautiful baby boy this morning, Valentin Fracesco Monteverde. He is so sweet. I am so in love:)”

Valentin is the third child for Landry and Monteverde, joining sister Estela and brother Alejandro. As it turns out, Valentin and Estela have the same birthday — exactly six years apart.

According to People, Valentin’s middle name was inspired specifically by the current Pope. Landry and Monteverde had traveled to Rome earlier in the year and met the leader of the Catholic Church there. “We got to meet the Pope, and he blessed this baby,” Landry explained. “So part of the name might have something to do with the our new Pope.”

Both mother and baby were doing very well, and Landry announced that the newest addition to the family was heading home with her on Saturday (July 13).
