Happy first birthday, Kannon — and a belated welcome to the world!

Don’t Be Tardy star and chef Tracey Bloom revealed the surprise news that she’s a mom on her Instagram account over the weekend, sharing a sweet video montage of her baby boy’s first year on Friday.

The clips and photos shared by Bloom, 34, showed her bonding with her little man soon after his March 1, 2018, birth and posing together in front of a Christmas tree, plus Kannon hanging out in his high chair, enjoying an apple-picking outing and more.

“This has been the best year of my life!! HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY SON #hisnameisKANNON,” the former Top Chef contestant captioned her tribute post, which played over a soundtrack of Bruno Mars‘ “Count on Me.”

Bloom’s friend and Don’t Be Tardy costar Kim Zolciak-Biermann commented on the touching post with, “You are the BEST mommy ever! God’s greatest gift,” while daughter Ariana chimed in, “Ur the best mommy!”

An adorable follow-up photo post showed off a few memorable moments from Kannon’s Dr. Seuss-themed first-birthday party.

At the event, the smiley youngster sported a sweet pair of red suspenders and Cat in the Hat-patterned bow tie and shorts as he dug into his cake without reservation.

“1st Birthday Party!!! SUCCESS. #smashcake #1stbirthday #cutebaby #love #drseuss,” the proud mama captioned her professional snapshot set.
