Jason Derulo is a dad!

The singer, 31, welcomed his first child with girlfriend, model Jena Frumes, on May 8, the couple revealed Tuesday. In a sweet Instagram post, Frumes shared a series of photos from the hospital room where she delivered her newborn, as well as the baby's first week at home.

"A glimpse of my first week with our healthy handsome little king 👑🥺💛" Frumes, 26, captioned the post. "Life now has so much more meaning & I am so grateful. I'm so so so in love with this little boy he's everything I never knew I needed👶🏽🙏🏽 05/08/2021✨"

She added, "I love you forever @jasonderulo."

The couple did not reveal their son's name yet. Last month, the "Savage Love" singer shared on The Drew Barrymore Show that he "could not be more excited" to welcome the baby, as he wants another Derulo to carry on his name.

The star told host Drew Barrymore that he will be the first of his siblings to have a son.

"I think I've done so much in my life, right? And I've been able to accomplish a lot so at this point in my life I'm like, 'Okay, now who do I share it with?' " he explained. "Also, there [are] no men to carry my name. My brother had all girls, my sister had girls, so there's no more Derulos, like I needed to make it happen because somebody's got to carry the name."

The singer also opened up about meeting Frumes at the gym shortly before the coronavirus pandemic, which he said happened at "just the right time."

"I was just starting to really get baby fever, I guess with age and you meet someone you really, really connect with and it happened at just the right time," he said.

Shortly after announcing the exciting pregnancy news, Derulo and Frumes revealed in March they were expecting a baby boy exclusively with PEOPLE.

The pair found out the sex of their baby on the way via a blue fireworks display at the Privilege Pool at Baha Mar resort destination in the Bahamas with an intimate group of friends and family.

Ahead of the sex reveal, Derulo said in an Instagram video that he predicted a boy because of the way Frumes' baby bump "is sitting kinda low and it looks like a ball." Frumes, on the other hand, thought it would be a girl because of the way she's been "clumsy and moody" while pregnant.
