Little Women: LA star Traci Harrison Tsou has a new little miracle in her life!

After suffering three miscarriages and being told by her doctors she would never be able to carry a baby to full term, the reality star and her husband Erik Tsou welcomed a healthy baby boy.

“It was a rough road, but we got our heaven’s blessing (tien-u),” the new parents tell PEOPLE about their son, whom they named Jacob Christian Tien-U Tsou.

Jacob – who is an average-sized baby – weighed in at 8 lb., 20 oz. and was 201⁄2 in. when he was born at 11:05 a.m. on Sunday morning.

After learning of her pregnancy, Tsou pulled out of the Lifetime show to focus on staying healthy.

“We are so thrilled for Traci and Erik,” says a rep for Kinetic Content (who produces Little Women: LA). “Having documented their story and their struggles in getting pregnant, this is most certainly a day we celebrate alongside them.”
