Also on Wednesday, Houska celebrated her 27th birthday, a day she'll now share with her youngest child. Houska and husband Cole DeBoer share son Watson, 19 months, and the pair are also raising Houska's daughter Aubree from a previous relationship.

DeBoer shared the same photo of his new daughter on his own Instagram, writing, "Happy birthday to my sweet perfect wife Chelsea DeBoer who just gave our family this beautiful blessing! Sharing the same amazing day I am so in love with our family! Our newest edition Baby Layne!!"

It seems baby Layne arrived a little early according to her mom, as Houska shared on Twitter on Aug. 24 that she was 37 weeks pregnant.

She also explained to her fans that she wouldn't be on social media while she was in labor, but would let everyone know when her bundle of joy arrived, a promise she followed through with on Wednesday.

She also joked that her husband had a plan in place for when her water broke.

Houska and DeBoer announced in March that they were expecting, sharing a framed photo of Houska's ultrasound that read "It's a girl."


“….GUESS WHAT! A sweet baby girl will be joining the DeBoer clan in a few short months! We could not be more excited!” Houska wrote on Instagram at the time.
