Jason said, “My wife just said, ‘Give me a break. I’m…’ quote, growing a what?”

He then turned to his wife Lauren, who was in the other room.

The 33-year-old lifestyle blogger then replied, “I just grew a penis.”

The 40-year-old media personality then ended the video by quoting her and saying, “‘Inside of me.’ It’s a boy!”

Jason also captioned the video by writing, “IT’S A …….”

Jason and Lauren’s fertility struggles

Jason and Lauren took their wedding vows in Dec 2014. However, the duo has faced fertility struggles for over 4 years.

The couple, after their fertility struggles and an IVF journey, first announced their pregnancy news exclusively to PEOPLE in Sep 2021.

“It’s always tough when a doctor tells you you can’t have kids naturally and you keep running into complications, but we didn’t sit and wallow in that. We were really blessed to meet with some amazing doctors and specialists,” Jason told PEOPLE at the time.

The pair shared the start of their in vitro fertilization process in Jan 2021 and also their experience throughout this journey via social media.

Lauren, during her pregnancy period, wrote a blog post mentioning the details of how she and her husband have made all the required preparations to have an at-home birth. But, going by the Instagram posts of the couple, it seems that their son took birth in a hospital.

Congratulations to Jason and Lauren for their newborn!
