Tamar Braxton and husband Vince Herbert are parents of a baby boy born Thursday, the singer and reality-TV star has announced.

"#tamartian friends HE'S finally here! #bfv #tamarandvince #theone," she told her her "tamartian" fans Thursday on Twitter, referring to "Braxton Family Values" and including a picture of a "baby boy" stuffed bear. Coincidentally, Braxton gave birth the same day as the show's finale.

They'd kept the baby's sex quiet until now and didn't mention his name.

"I don't have that many months left," the 35-year-old had said on "Good Morning America" back in March, when she announced she was expecting, and boy was she right!

Turns out the couple had their own reasons for waiting so long to spill the baby beans: They'd been told they were going to have fertility problems. "We had to get comfortable with the fact that it happened on its own,” she told People back in March. "We decided [not to announce] until we were both really OK with it."

Braxton got congrats via Twitter (and we presume one-on-one) from sisters Toni and Towanda, plus mom Evelyn, who wrote, "Congratulations to my @TamarBraxtonHer I am so blessed to have another grandbaby Look at GOD!"

It's a first child for Tamar and her music-exec hubby, who's 43.
