The post includes photos of the happy couple who have been together since 2018 and reportedly engaged since 2019. And fans finally get to see their adorable little boy, Kaire in the photos. The couple quietly welcomed their baby boy last year. Wilkerson posted a video on YouTube titled, "Our Pregnancy Journey," announcing the pregnancy and the baby's arrival.

Look at my boy," and then you hear the baby let out a cry. Fair warning to all who watch this video - grab some tissues because the heartwarming moment captured on video is sure to make you tear up a bit.
