It’s official! Bill Horn and Scout Masterson are all smiles after finalizing the adoption of their 8-month-old daughter Simone Lynn in Los Angeles, Calif. on Friday.

Surrounded by close family and friends, including godparents Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, Scout’s mom Jackie Bennett and the judge signing off on the adoption, the Guncles admit the paperwork may be complete, but their love as a family of three began long ago.

“While Scout and I legally became Simone’s dads today, the truth is she’s been our little girl since the moment she was born. We can’t imagine our lives without her,” Horn tells PEOPLE.

Continues Masterson, “It’s been such a long journey in our adoption process leading up to today’s finalization. We feel blessed to have Tori and Dean as Simone’s godparents and to have them join us today — one of the most special days of our lives.”

The new season of Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood airs early this summer.
