Congratulations are in order for ACE Family stars Catherine Paiz and Austin McBroom! The couple welcomed their third child, a baby boy, on Saturday, June 20. The YouTuber took to social media to announce the happy news.
“Our family is now complete [blue heart emoji]. June 20, 2020 [baby angel emoji],” Austin, 28, captioned a photo of him and Catherine, 29, in the delivery room.
Catherine and Austin already share two daughters — Elle, whom they welcomed in May 2016, and Alaïa, who was born in October 2018. They had Elle a few months before joining YouTube. On the other hand, when Catherine became pregnant with Alaïa, she documented the whole journey on their YouTube channel, as well as social media. However, with their first son, the couple kept the pregnancy a secret until the last few months.
On January 2, Catherine and Austin announced they were expecting. “I wanted to keep you to myself for as long as I could and now after all these months of privately enjoying some time with our family, I am filled with so much joy to share you with the world,” she wrote on IG at the time. “You were the missing puzzle piece, I can’t wait to meet you son.”
Austin also expressed his excitement in a separate post. “Dear son, you have an amazing, strong beautiful mother, a father who will protect you forever and two beautiful loving princesses waiting for you … #Yourfirstultrasound,” he captioned the clip.
While the longtime couple kept their third pregnancy on the DL for the most part, it turns out, that’s not the only thing they kept to themselves. The parents of three, who got engaged in August 2017, have been married since December 2017 to fans’ surprise. It wasn’t until January 2020 when they shared the exciting news that they had tied the knot a while back.
On the same day the couple announced they’re having a son, Catherine took to Twitter to divulge that Austin isn’t her fiancé but in fact her hubby. “Although we have publicly shared some special moments throughout the years, our marriage was not one of them,” she wrote on Twitter. “We got married a couple years ago in private in our backyard. We look forward to having our ceremony in the future where our parents, friends and family will attend … But for a while it was just our moment to call ours.”
The couple also took to their January 18 YouTube video to reveal that their nuptials were super casual and consisted of them rockin’ flip flops. That being said, we can’t wait for the ACE Family stars to have a big wedding!
