This Sunday, August 5, the hunky chef welcomed his first child with fiancée Vanessa Black!
"Vanessa and I are so overcome with joy to welcome our beautiful baby boy ATLAS WILDING SHEREMET-BLACK into this crazy world," he said in a statement.
"I've never met a more courageous, example of love, strength or bravery in my life," he continued, praising his gorgeous wife-to-be. "I have such incredible respect for every woman who steps up to this momentous task. I am forever in awe."
"Today was a reminder that even the best laid plans can completely go up in smoke, but as long as we have a healthy mommy and healthy baby, in the end, nothing else matters," added Sheremet, 37. "Thank you to everyone for the outpouring of love and well wishes. We love you all."
The cookbook author later took to Instagram to share photos of the adorable newborn, as well as of him and his "hero" wife.
"If the way you entered into this world is any indication of the life we will share, V and I are in for a wild ride," he wrote in the caption.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Rimes, 35, and Sheremet called it quits in 2010 after eight years of marriage and two very messy cheating scandals. The next year, the "I Need You" singer married actor Eddie Cibrian, who also left his longtime wife for Rimes. The two have no children together, though Cibrian, 45, is a father to two kids from his marriage to Brandi Glanville.
Earlier this year, a source told Radar that Rimes was "jealous" of Sheremet's baby news, and she and Cibrian have been trying for years!
