Celebrity tattoo artist and make-up entrepreneur Kat Von D has announced that she is expecting a baby with her partner Leafar Seyer.
The couple, who tied the knot earlier this year, shared a photo on their respective Instagram profiles sharing the news.
Von D simply captioned the image: "It's a boy."
Her husband Leafar Seyer (whose birth name is Rafael Reyes) shared the same image.
His caption, which suggests that the couple have already picked a name out for their little boy, said: "When I thought I had it all. Life gifts me with the greatest of joys.
"We are pregnant and having a baby boy. I love you Kat Von D, and I'm ready to be a father to our son Leafar. Thank you, my love, our family comes first."
