The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita and her husband Chris welcomed their third child. 

Nicholas Francis Laurita was born Thursday morning via Caesarean section and tipped the scales at 8 pounds, 5 ounces, a Bravo rep told Us

The newborn is the second child for the couple, who have a six-year-old son, and the third for Laurita, who also has a 17-year-old daughter from a previous marriage. On the Bravo reality show, the couple has been shown meeting with doctors for fertility tests after Laurita suffered consecutive miscarriages.

The Housewives clan will have another baby arriving this fall: Laurita's co-star Teresa Giudice is expecting her fourth child in September.
