Teen Mom reunion host Nessa Diab is a mom!

Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 viewers know Nessa from her role as a co-host for the reunion episodes alongside Dr. Drew Pinsky, and now she’s taken on a new role as a mother.

The radio personality and podcast host recently took to Instagram to drop the bombshell that she secretly welcomed a child with her longtime boyfriend, former NFL star Colin Kaepernick.

Taking to her Instagram late Sunday, Nessa shared a black-and-white photo of herself, Colin, and their newborn baby as the newly minted family of three snuggled together in a hospital bed.

“❤️ I thought long and hard about sharing our life changing news today. I decided to do so because today is the first day in a few weeks where I stepped out for work with a new life title – MOM!” Nessa captioned the post.

Nessa shared that she and Colin welcomed their baby a few weeks ago. She didn’t reveal the baby’s gender or name but noted that her delivery recovery has been rough, although she was hesitant to share any details about the birth.

“Recovering after delivery has been a journey (more on that later) and honestly I wasn’t going to share anything because this is sooooo personal to us and I realized I’m a complete mama bear!” Nessa added. “Colin is the most amazing dad and I’m soooo grateful that he is by our side for every moment of this journey.”

Nessa ultimately decided to share the happy news with her 501,000 Instagram followers, noting the connection it’s brought between her and other parents. She thanked her fans for their support and concluded her caption with, “Love, The Kaepernicks.”

Some of the moms and dads from the Teen Mom franchise showed up to congratulate Nessa on her new addition.
