Megan Nelson, Chelsea HouskaTeen Mom 2 BFF Megan Nelson is a mom! The friend of series regular Chelsea Houska has announced the birth of her first child, a baby boy.

Megan Nelson, pictured here in the early days of Teen Mom 2 filming with Chelsea Houska and her daughter Aubree, shared the baby news on her personal Facebook page.

The 19-year-old wrote on Tuesday, "Hey its Megan! sorry its beeen forever :( i had my little boy on July 4th!! its taken me so long to get on though because of all my complications after baby :/ one thing led to another and i just left the hospital today for hopefully what is the LAST time!"

Megan Nelson's baby is named Hunter John Ovre, and at just 16 days old he's been given the nickname Huckleberry. The little boy is the first child for Megan and boyfriend Cody.

Of her birth experience, the Teen Mom 2 star shares that Huckleberry was born naturally ("without any tearing! haha"), weighed in at 9 pounds, 8 ounces and was 21 inches long.

No word yet on what type of complications kept Megan Nelson and her newborn baby in the hospital for more than two weeks.

It seems Teen Mom 2's Chelsea Houska got a sneak peek at baby Huckleberry. On July 15 she tweeted, "Heading to the mall to see @menelson10 and her little baby. Aubree is excited."

Congratulations to Teen Mom 2's Megan Nelson on her baby boy!
