“I’m home now, trying to recover from my first C-section (hats off to all the c-section moms out there — I had no idea!) and working hard with my breast pump to keep up with her growing appetite,” she added. “When we visit with her at the hospital, the kids fight over who can hold her — I don’t blame them! She’s the sweetest, most perfect angel we have ever seen.”

The former MTV star went on to shared that their daughter was born with a “a heart defect (2 holes in the heart and valves that need to be fixed)” that will require multiple surgeries over the next “3-4 months.”
