Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave's little boy Cruz is four years old! On the eve of her cutie-pie's August 21 birthday, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills  mom looked back at the day he was born with a series of heartfelt posts on Instagram Stories. 

How to Watch

Using intimate family photos, Teddi first shared a snap of herself at nine months pregnant. "4 years ago today, my water broke with Cruz," she wrote. "Shortly after this pic [Edwin Arroyave] and I headed to the hospital." The next post showed a photo of Teddi in her hospital bed, holding the newborn Cruz. Now, grab the tissues: 

"He was born at 1:00 am and immediately rushed to the nicu," she wrote. (Teddi has been open about her son's heart condition in the past.) The RHOBH continued: "This was the first time I was able to hold him after many hours of being separated. He was OK thank god ... I couldn't stop kissing him and pretty much moved into the nicu." 

Take a look back at the intimate, touching family photos below, and join us in wishing Cruz a fantastic and fun fourth year!
