Below Deck fan favorite Kate Chastain has entered the next chapter in her life now that she’s a mom.

Kate welcomed her first child this week, just days before her May 8 due date.

The former chief stew shocked fans with her pregnancy news last November ahead of her appearing on The Traitors.

She has had a lot to say about being pregnant, including how being stew and on Below Deck prepared her for motherhood due to lack of sleep.

Below Deck fans have been kept updated on Kate’s pregnancy via social media as she happily showed off her growing baby bump.

Her most recent bump update was two weeks ago, and the countdown to the baby’s arrival was on, but now it’s over, as Kate has shared that her angel has arrived.

Taking to Instagram, Kate shared the news that she’s a first-time mom. Kate was holding her little bundle of joy in the hospital as she was sitting on the bed.

Rocking a pair of signature sunglasses, Kate was holding her son, and there’s no question that the little guy is so adorable.

“Hard Launch: Sullivan Cay ?,” she captioned the IG post.

Kate didn’t spill any details other than her son’s name. As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Kate kept the gender of her baby and name under wraps.

The Below Deck alum has also admitted that she’s keeping her baby daddy’s identity a secret for her son’s privacy.
