"As if we don't already have enough to be sooo beyond thankful for…our little baby boy decided it was his time to come yesterday and we couldn't be more in love with him. He is such a little blessing and I couldn't be more excited to be his mommy ??? 11•23•16 Jack Alexander Cassotta. Born at 7:03pm after 5 hours of labor at 6lbs 5 oz and 18.7 in long," she wrote in the caption.

Looks like Jack wanted to make his debut into the world right before Thanksgiving! And two of Taylor's closet friends, Ryan Newman and her Sharkboy and Lavagirl co-star Taylor Lautner's younger sister Makena, were right there to meet the little cutie. He's obviously going to be so spoiled by his aunts!
