The former Bravo stars announced the birth of their little man -- Cruz Michael Cauchi -- on Tuesday. Making his Instagram debut, Jax and Brittany shared the very first shot of Cruz while revealing he was actually born yesterday. 

In the photo, which was taken at the hospital, Jax can be seen planting a loving kiss on his wife's cheek as she held onto their firstborn child. Saying their lives have changed forever, the controversial Pump Rules star captioned the swoon-worthy family shot by writing, "I’ve never in my life thought it was going to be like this.. it’s 10000 times better. Dad mode just kicks in."

Appearing not to have a care in the world except protecting his tiny family, Jax added, "I don’t think I have ever been as happy as I am right now, everything else in life seems so insignificant now."

Earlier this month, Jax Taylor made headlines when his money issues were exposed. As Radar reported, the ex-reality TV star owes a total of $1.2 million in taxes.

Radar obtained the federal documents confirming Jax Taylor is on the hook for $868,035 but that's not all. In the state of California, the former Vanderpump Rules personality owes an additional $316,571.

Despite the couple's tax troubles, they managed to give birth in Beverly Hills' swanky hospital Cedars-Sinai where stars like Jessica Simpson, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, and more have welcomed their children.

As for Brittany Cartwright, she's stuck by her man through worse than major money issues, and based on her latest Instagram, her two boys are her number one priority. 

Posting a similar shot as Jax from inside the hospital, the brand-new mom called Cruz "the most precious gift." She also added that she's "so blessed to be his Mommy," adding she and Jax are "soooooo so happy."

Jax and Brittany's son is the latest Vanderpump Rules baby but he's the first boy! Ex-Pump Rules star Stassi Schroeder gave birth to her daughter, Hanford, in January. Lala Kent followed suit welcoming her little girl, Ocean, last month.
