He’s finally here! Meghan Trainor and husband Daryl Sabara welcomed their first son, Riley, in February 2021, and introduced fans to the newborn baby boy via social media.
“This sweet baby boy’s due date was today on Valentine’s Day,” the songstress wrote alongside a series of Instagram pics. “We got to meet him Monday, February 8th! We are SO IN LOVE. Thank you @darylsabara for the best Valentine’s gift ever! Welcome to the world Riley!”
Months after his birth, in June 2021, Meghan opened up about the newborn’s hospital stay. “It was one of those horror stories where he didn’t cry,” she reaclled on the TODAY show. “He didn’t make noise when he came out. I was like, ‘Why isn’t he crying?’ Then they told me he was having breathing issues.”
The new mom added, “It was definitely a rough start. But we’re so lucky we got to bring him home after five days.”
The couple first announced their pregnancy news during an October 2020 appearance on TODAY. “I do feel like I’m learning new things every single day,” Meghan said after revealing her pregnancy news. “I realized how amazing women are. We’re all like, women are superheroes. This is crazy.”
Weeks after sharing the exciting news, the pair went on The Kelly Clarkson Show and revealed the baby’s sex.
“I spent so long where I’m like ‘it,’ or ‘baby’ and I didn’t know when I could say it, but, it’s a boy,” she explained during an interview with Entertainment Tonight in October 2020. “Technology is insane, so there is a new blood test that you can take at 12 weeks pregnant … that tells you if it’s a boy or a girl, and they call you on the phone and it was so insane because I’m that girl that looks up everything, and I’m like, ‘That’s what I have.’ So, there’s all these myths of, oh, if the heartbeat is really fast, it’s a girl, and if your hips are the first to go out, then it’s a girl, and so I was like, ‘It’s a girl.’ Like, I got it. I was so confident, and then when she called us and I was like, ‘OK, tell us,’ and she’s like, ‘What do you think it is?’ And my husband is like, ‘A girl.’ And she’s like, ‘Actually, it’s a boy.'”
After months of pregnancy pics on Instagram, the baby is finally here! As he continues to grow, fans can only hope for the “All About That Bass” singer to continue sharing adorable pics of Riley. Scroll through our gallery to see every photo of Meghan and Daryl’s newborn so far.
