Bring it on, Meghan. Bring. It. On!
Meghan King Edmonds has only officially been a mom for four days, but the proud first-timer is already blowing up our Instagram newsfeeds with pics of her adorable new addition—and we SO don't blame her!
As any Real Housewives fan can tell you, the outspoken reality star—who is married to former MLB center-fielder Jim Edmonds—struggled to conceive before finally getting pregnant via IVF. So who can blame her for being seriously stoked about the fact that daughter Aspen King Edmonds has arrived happy and healthy two weeks early?
And we are just loving that name, btw!
The social media blitz started on Thanksgiving day, when the Bravo-lebrity shared the news of Aspen's arrival on her Insta, by posting a birth announcement guest-starring her dog GG:
Pretty cute, right?
Next up, as promised, came a post of the blissful mama grasping her baby girl's teeny, tiny finger, which offered up details of Aspen's natural birth—complete with a shoutout to her doula—in the caption:
Our perfect Aspen King Edmonds made her grand entrance on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2016, 6lbs 11oz. From the hours leading up to the birth I had the most incredible husband, he didn't leave my side. I could not have labored naturally without him and my doula. Jimmy was a constant source of support through every contraction, each blood-curdling scream and each time I told him I thought I was dying and couldn't do it anymore. He ran baths, helped me walk, helped me breathe, held my hands, essentially endured the burden of my pain for all 22 hours. I am so proud and impressed of the team we made to welcome Aspen, our bond is more unshakable than I ever imagined. We have a healthy, strong happy baby who loves breastfeeding and already holding her head up! I feel like I worked out for a week straight and my throat hurts from yelling but I survived unscathed without so much as a tiny tear and now I feel like the strongest warrior on the planet (and Jimmy thinks so too) her birthdate 11/24/16 added up equals her daddy's baseball number 15 :) 1+1+2+4+1+6=15 #secondsold #needlefree #naturalbirth #22hoursoflabor #aspenkingedmonds #thanksgivingbaby #inlove #cantstopstaring #birthplanwentasplanned #fullheadofblackhair #warriorbaby -------------------- We are deliriously in love with our perfect Aspen 💕💗
"I feel like I worked out for a week straight and my throat hurts from yelling," she gushed. "But I survived unscathed without so much as a tiny tear and now I feel like the strongest warrior on the planet."
Twenty bucks says that line right there scores her Andy Cohen's coveted Mazel of the Week.

Later, the excited new mom shared another baby pic, this one of GG welcoming Aspen into the Edmonds fold:
Then came a close up, which Meghan captioned "mini Jimmy":
Hmmm. We kind of see it. That might just be the power of suggestion, though. But forget all that for a second because it's Meghan's most recent post—an amazing shot of Aspen with what looks like a huge smile on her face—that is by far and away our fave:
Caption: "3 days old and already loving life!"
Pretty sure her mama is, too!
