The Lifetime personality's rep revealed just how the precious parent and her sweet son are doing, saying:
"She welcomed her baby boy yesterday morning at 8:31am in San Diego, California. He weighed in at 5 lbs, 3 oz. He was four and a half weeks early, but all is fine with mom and the baby."
We're so relieved, considering the gorgeous gal's pregnancy wasn't always smooth sailing.
In case you don't remember, the reality star was hospitalized in April after having contractions three months before her due date.
But we're happy to report that Briana and her little guy are happy and healthy!

Funny, good looking, AND passionate about a great cause that's near and dear to his heart?
Chris Pratt is pretty much the most perfect man in the world — aside from Zac Efron, of course!
The Guardians of the Galaxy star attended the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies on Friday night and gave a heartfelt speech about his own son, Jack, who was a prematurely born infant.

He started off his speech by remembering the day Jack was born nine weeks early in August 2012, weighing in at just 3 pounds, 12 ounces.
Chris lightened the mood by joking:

We love babies, and while we get excited whenever we see one, we don’t want them poppin out too EARLY!
But according to the Born Too Soon Report, the first study of it’s kind led by the WHO (World Health Organization), one in ten babies are born prematurely (born before 37 weeks instead of a full-term 40 week pregnancy) around the world each year!!!
What’s worse is that

After putting Josie Dugger's life in danger, TLC might have to change the name of their hit show, 18 Kids and Counting, to 17 Kids and Depleting.
The youngest child of the 21 member Dugger family has reportedly suffered some serious medical problems while shooting over seas in Israel.
Little Josie was born pre maturely and is prone to sickness. Our source close to the family says the Dugger's 3 week long vaca/shoot put the tot at risk.
The source close to the family said:
“Josie has had serious breathing issues since her premature birth. While the Duggars are a loving family who adore their children, they are definitely risking Josie’s life by traveling all over the world. It seems like they are putting the show before their child’s health. Jim Bob and Michelle need to put their children first, before media attention and money.”
This seems out of character for the Arkansas-based, evangelical Christian family. But who knows what the truth is?
Money and fame can do weird things to people, just ask John Gosselin!

Good work, Dee!
Dee Snider, the lead singer of Twister Sister, joined the March of Dimes for his 9th annual Bikers for Babies Ride at Nickerson Beach Park in Nassau County, New York this past weekend.
Over 2,000 bikers showed up and rode the 60 minute, 45-mile long route for the fight against premature birth, with which Dee himself has been personally affected. Two of his four children were born prematurely.
Dee, who also performed at the event, said:
"I'm honored to be a part of these events and proud of their success in raising funds to fight premature birth."
You're doing amazing work, Dee! Fight the good fight!
