Perez Hilton announces the birth — & name — of Baby No. 3

Famously infamous blogger Perez Hilton is a dad for the third time — and it's a girl. The baby is named Mayte Amor after her grandparents, Mario and Teresita, and she arrived via a surrogate on Oct. 4. Hilton (born Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr., in case you ever wondered) couldn't be happier.

He posted the big news on Instagram with a sweet pic — and a major shoutout to all surrogates.

Dear friends, A lot has changed over the past decade plus and I am so thankful, humbled, and truly indebted that you have accepted me through the fat and the fug and the then and the now. We've grown up together and evolved and I continue to do so - in the best way possible! I am beaming with joy and pride as I share with you that my family has grown yet again. Last week my son and daughter welcomed a sister into the world! #MayteAmor was born on Wednesday, October 4th at 3:26 PM - weighing 7 lbs 4 oz, measuring 20 inches long, and she's perfect! Named after her grandparents - Mario & Teresita - their love will forever flow through her and protect her and all of my kids. Grandma is over the moon and so are her siblings! Mayte Amor waited until 41 weeks to make her fashionably late arrival. She's doing everything a newborn should do and doing it so well. She's a whole 7 days advanced! Thank you to my sister for keeping everything running so smoothly on the site. Thank you to everyone who's reached out with love and concern over my needed social media break. And, most importantly, thank you to the surrogate who gave me the greatest gift anyone could ever receive! And thank you to the other two surrogates who helped us as well! And thank you to all the surrogates who give so selflessly and whose kindness is inspiring! There are still many states in America that, sadly, prohibit surrogacy and I hope to use my voice to advocate for making it legal across the country! I am deliriously tired and equally happy! This is a very special time for me and my family! Family time is the best time! Family first! They are my everything!

He continued, "I am deliriously tired and equally happy! This is a very special time for me and my family! Family time is the best time! Family first! They are my everything!" (See, you can tell he's both happy and delirious based on exclamation point count alone.)

Hilton already has a daughter, Mia, and a son, Mario, who show up in his Instagram feed often (along with his adorable doting mom). Clearly, family life suits our favorite gossip — who would have guessed?

Family time is the best time! Family first! They are my everything!! #LaFamiliaHilton
