Following two tragic miscarriages, Karine gave birth to a baby boy named Pierre Martins on Friday, March 22, at 3:20 p.m. in Manaus, Brazil.
PEOPLE confirmed the news of Pierre’s arrival, revealing the baby weighed in at 6 lbs., 14 oz. and was 19¾ inches long.
“I’m very happy, very excited. I’m also very nervous and want to do everything the best that I can and do everything right,” Paul said. “Everyone keeps asking how it feels to be a dad. Anyone can make a baby, but going through the day-to-day process of being a father is going to be a new experience.”
“I’m very happy, very honored and very privileged and I want to make sure I do my absolute best for Pierre,” he added.
According to the report, Karine had a “hard time” with labor and delivery and is now “recovering well” but “still very weak”
“It was super hard, but now everything is fine because the baby is calm and he is breastfeeding well,” she told the magazine.
