The Aerie model also praised her boyfriend’s parenting skills, writing, “Thank you @philipapayne you’ve shattered any expectation I had of you as a father already. I am so proud you’re my partner and I’m holding back tears writing this and every time I look at you with our baby. Love you and love our family unconditionally.”

In the social media upload, the couple gazed down at their infant while she slept inside a football helmet.

The new mom announced their baby girl’s birth on Sunday, April 19, with a slideshow of throwback baby bump pictures. “Me and daddy are taking time to be in awe that we are now a family of three and when I’m ready I cannot wait to share more details with you all on my home birth and this tiny human that we love beyond measure,” she captioned the Instagram post at the time.

She and Payne started dating in 2018 and announced in November 2019 that they had a little one on the way when Lawrence showed off her baby bump at a New Jersey nail salon.
