It’s a little princess for Melissa Howard Beck! The former Real World: New Orleans castmember and her husband, Glassjaw guitarist Justin Beck welcomed their first child Friday, March 20th at 10:18 p.m. Daughter Shalom Mazie Beck weighed in at 6 lbs., 3 oz and measured 18 inches long.

“She is a kind and precious baby. We are insanely in love with her,” the proud mama tells CBB. Despite a long labor, the 32-year-old took to Twitter to share that the entire experience — pain and all! — was more than worth it.

“So 26 hours of labor, surviving only on ice-chips + 4 hrs of pushing + 1 epidural = STILL the SINGLE best thing that has ever happened to me.”

The pregnancy was announced in September. Melissa’s due date had been this past Wednesday, March 25th.
