German supermodel Heidi Klum and her husband, British pop star Seal, are new parents.

The baby, a boy named Henry G nther Ademola Dashtu Samuel, was born late Monday in a Los Angeles-area hospital. Everyone is “happy and healthy,” a source tells PEOPLE.

The couple will soon bring the baby – who carries the last name of his dad, born Sealhenry Samuel, and got the name G nther from Heidi’s father – home to their Bel Air estate to join Klum’s 16-month-old daughter, Leni.

This past March, Klum and Seal announced they were expecting a child together. On May 10, they were wed on a beach in Mexico, near Seal’s home on Mexico’s luxurious Costa Careyes.

Klum, 32, had Leni with her ex-boyfriend, Italian businessman Flavio Briatore. But from the start of Seal’s and Klum’s romance, which began while Klum was pregnant with Leni in February 2004, the singer, 42, has acted like a father to the little girl.

In May 2004, he celebrated Leni’s birth at the New York City hospital with champagne, and he dedicated his latest album, Best: 1991-2004, first to “my daughter Leni”; then to Klum and her parents.

As a pal told PEOPLE, “He is crazy about Leni. He is always carrying her around. He is the first one to change a diaper.”

“What I love most about fatherhood,” said Seal, is “the opportunity to be a part of the development process of a new life.”

As for Klum, earlier this year she said during an interview on German TV about her life with Seal and Leni, “We all sing a lot together. I sing a lot, even with my voice.”

And now they have a quartet.
