Model With Pregnancy Abs Gives Birth

Update (4/17/15): This post was updated with new info and photos of Sarah Stage's baby.

If you're not familiar with the name Sarah Stage, you might know her better as the six-pack abs mom who Instagrammed her way through pregnancy.

After sparking some controversy by documenting her impossibly-taut pregnant belly -- which caused a mix of body shaming and body envy -- the model gave birth on Tuesday to a baby boy named James Hunter. The baby boy weighed 8 lbs., 7 ounces, and was 22 inches long.

Speaking to E!, Stage shared excitement for her newborn: "[H]e's a big healthy boy and he got an APGAR score of 8-9. Thank you for supporting me throughout my pregnancy!"

Stage later shared two adorable photos of her son below, along with the captions: "Thank you for the positive support throughout my journey... It's just beginning!!!" and "Love at first sight."
