After three years of trying to get pregnant and finally succeeding with the help of IVF, Million Dollar Listing's Ryan Serhant and his wife Emilia have welcomed a baby, and it's a . . . girl! The couple welcomed their daughter Zena on Feb. 26, and shared the news on their respective Instagram accounts on March 3.
Ryan's post, featuring a beautiful photo of the new family of three in Emilia's hospital bed, focused on their difficult journey to pregnancy.
Your momma and I have waited almost three years to meet you. We had no idea how difficult getting pregnant with you was going to be. We tried everything. We were so nervous you might never come. When we finally decided to try IVF, we were so scared it wouldn't work. And then you stuck. And then we heard your little heartbeat for the first time. Your mom and I were so excited every time we would go to the hospital to see you, but even more terrified we would lose you. Because the fact that we were pregnant — as beautiful as it was — was almost too good to be true. And because of that fear, we loved you as hard as we could from the moment we knew you existed. We thought if we put that love for you out there, you would hear it, and you would make it. I watched you grow slowly with your momma every day, waiting for the moment I would finally meet you. I feel like I've spent my whole life working towards this moment, when everything would make sense . . . We love you now and forever, our new, beautiful, little puff.
Emilia's post echoed Ryan's, and the new mom said she felt like she'd been "waiting to exhale for months" — 41 weeks to be exact. "Now that you're finally here, and I get to stare into your eyes, to smell your skin, to hold you, my heart is bursting . . . I can't find the perfect words to describe how madly in love I am. I am forever grateful, my babylino, that you chose me to be your Mommy."
Congratulations to the happy couple and their new "little puff," Zena — see her first photos ahead!
