The model welcomed Sylvester Apollo Bear on March 8.
Emily Ratajkowski is giving fans a glimpse into life with newborn son Sylvester Apollo Bear. The model shared a candid photo of herself breastfeeding the three-week-old, with the simple caption "Beautiful boy." Fans flooded the comments section of the intimate and gorgeous photo with dozens of heart emojis.
Ratajkowski called her baby's March 8 birth "the most surreal, beautiful, and love-filled morning of my life." Sylvester is the first child for Ratajkowski and husband Sebastian Bear-McClard. The newborn's face is blurred out in the picture in a nod to privacy.
Ratajkowski has shared a few other candid pictures with her Instagram followers.
Days after her son's arrival, Ratajkowski shared several raw, emotional shots of her labor. "In between pushes/first moments with Sly," she captioned the moving photos. Friends and fellow models chimed in to praise the shots. "These pictures capture the pain and the joy so beautifully," one wrote. "These are beyond beautiful," another wrote.
Before Sylvester's birth, the model mama said that wouldn't be focusing on her baby's gender. "We like to respond that we won't know the gender until our child is 18 and that they'll let us know then. Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who—rather than what—is growing inside my belly," she wrote in an essay for Vogue. "I want to be a parent who allows my child to show themself to me," she added.
Now that baby Sylvester is here, we can't wait to see more beautiful moments on his famous mama's Instagram.
