But the road to becoming a mom wasn't easy, as Cortese also revealed in a caption along with Instagram photos of the baby and hubby Buckner, "My boys ?? I’ve never loved something so much in my entire life #ourlittleprince .. It was a tough two days and I couldn’t have done it without my other half .. #wortheverymoment #iddoitalloveragain."

"I never thought i could love Chris anymore than i did until i saw him hold CJ," Cortese added about Buckner, whom she married in October 2017. The child was the couple's first and a picture showed Buckner cradling the little one, who wore a onesie with a dog pattern and a white cap. Another shot captured Buckner lying next to little Christopher in the hospital.

Cortese had announced her pregnancy in July. The JS star known for her curves noted back then on social media, "Chris and I Decided to wait until we were ready to spill the beans!" They revealed the baby's gender and name ahead of time.

Cortese now joins her co-stars Snooki and JWoww, who both have two kids, in becoming a mom. As readers know, JWoww is in the midst of a messy split from her husband Roger Mathews.
