“I have always wanted to be a mother and it’s still a little bit surprising, but I’m overjoyed!” Malika Haqq told PEOPLE.

And now it seems her dream has come true. On Saturday, Mar. 14, three days after celebrating her own birthday, the Good American model welcomed a beautiful baby boy named Ace Flores.

Haqq, 37, a first-time mother has been gushing over her bundle of joy since the moment she found out she was pregnant. In September 2019, the 37-year-old announced on Instagram that she was expecting.

She wrote, “I listen to my heart, and I’ve decided that the rest of my life will be the best of my life. I’m pregnant! I didn't know when, I just knew one day. God said it’s my turn, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the little spirit that grows inside of me. I am yours, baby, and you are mine. Thank you, @Clearblue for being a CLEAR and intricate part of the most important test result of my life. 2020 baby!”

At the time of her announcement, Haqq had originally decided not to disclose who the father was, though fans suspected it was her ex-boyfriend, rapper O.T. Genasis (born Odis Oliver Flores).

In June 2019, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and the 31-year-old rapper announced after two years they would be going their separate ways. Haqq noted “Single” in a caption on a post on her Instagram page letting fans know she and the rapper had called it quits. Eight weeks later, her bundle of joy announcement was made.

During her entire pregnancy journey, Haqq posted pictures of herself, along with her twin sister, Khadijah Haqq, and best friend and KUWTH co-star, Khloe Kardashian.

For years, Haqq, her sister and the Kardashians have had a very public friendship; therefore, it came as no surprise Khloe would be throwing her an extravagant baby shower.

On Feb. 10, the new mother posted pictures of the adorable baby shower adorned in shades of brown, light blues and teddy bears. Pictures of her child’s father, close friends, family and other celebrities were shared as Haqq glowed during her special moment.

Haqq made the official announcement regarding her newborn son’s arrival in a picture with Ace’s hand insides of her hand that is also inside of his father’s O.T. Genasis’ hand. She captioned the sweet photo, “Ace Flores 3.14.2020”

Haqq’s sister, Khadijah also posted online, along with O.T. Genasis who posted a full picture of his son. The rapper captioned his photo, “Ace. I love you 03.14.20."

Ace Flores would be the second son for the California rapper. He has another son from a previous relationship named Genasis. The couple has still not gotten back together, though they have both committed to co-parenting their new bundle of joy.
