Monique Samuels Welcomes Her Third Child — See Her Bouncing Baby Boy!

The Real Housewives of Potomac family is now a party of five.

Monique Samuels is officially a mom of three! The Real Housewives of Potomac blogger welcomed her third child, son Chase Omari Samuels, with husband Chris Samuels at 4:56 p.m. on November 26. He weighs 8 pounds, 15 ounces, and he is 21 inches long.

Monique shared the happy news on Instagram on Monday. "It’s... A... BOY!!!! Told yall! I’m 3 for 3 with guessing genders now," she exclaimed in the post. Her hubby Chris also guessed that the couple would be welcoming a boy in a video posted in Monique's Instagram Story.

Monique previously told PEOPLE in July that she and her husband were waiting until the baby was born to find out their child's gender. “It’ll be a surprise,” she said. “With my two kids, we waited until we pushed to find out the sex. We like to know then.”

Chase arrived one week early, Monique also shared on Instagram. "Thank God for a safe and fast delivery and one healthy baby boy!!!!" she gushed in the post. "Thank you all for the well wishes and prayers."

Monique gave the first glimpse of Chase in her Instagram Story on Monday in a video that showed her cradling her baby in her arms in the hospital. "So I had another little man. Knocked out, mouth wide open, looking just like Daddy," she shared. "And he's so sweet. He's so chill already."

Monique also shared with PEOPLE that her new baby son is "absolutely perfect."

Monique announced that her family of four, which also includes son Christopher, 5, and daughter Milani, 3, would become a party of five in June. "I’m way too happy to be bothered... I’m full of life... LITERALLY," Monique shared in an Instagram post in which she revealed her baby bump for the first time, along with the hashtags "#blessed" and "#partyofFive."

Indeed, Monique and Chris' third child was definitely a blessing for the couple after the RHOP mom suffered a miscarriage prior to the RHOP Season 2 reunion in 2017.  "It taught me not to take things for granted and to think that I'm so special that something like that can't happen to me," Monique told The Daily Dish in April. "I just try to look at the positive in any situation and say obviously God knew what was best at that time. So now moving forward, I'll make sure I'm more prepared so when the time comes again, we'll be ready, and I'll try not to be as nervous being that we've experienced that. I can only imagine if and when we get pregnant again, just the thought of it possibly happening again... just trying to shut that [thought] from my mind."


Monique has been committed to staying positive and not letting her fear get to her during her pregnancy, even as she encountered some complications early on. And it looks like the final months of Monique's pregnancy have been filled with glowing baby bump moments and lots of time with her loved ones
