Vicki Gunvalson is officially a grandmother. The Real Housewives of Orange County star’s daughter Briana Culberson welcomed son Troy William Culberson three early this morning via emergency C-section (he was three weeks ahead of schedule.) Briana’s husband Ryan was by her side during the delivery.

“Troy William Culberson was born a healthy 7 lbs, 11 ounces at 7:53 a.m. this morning via emergency C-section,” a family rep tells Us Weekly. For coming three weeks early, that sure is one big baby. “Briana and Ryan are overjoyed with their newest addition to their family and are eager and excited to begin their new lives together.”
While it was noted that the Briana underwent an emergency C-section, no reason was given.
The couple had decided on the name Troy several months ago, but recently opted for William as the middle name to honor Briana’s maternal grandmother. (What? Not Brooks?) According to sources, an excited Vicki “couldn’t stop crying.”
UPDATE – Vicki just posted this message on her Facebook wall:
News everyone has been waiting for: Troy William Culberson was born a healthy 7 lbs, 11 ounces and 20 inches at 7:53 a.m. this morning! Thank you everyone for all your support! I’m a GRANDMA! Im so proud of Briana and Ryan. They will make amazing parents.
Fans of Real Housewives of Orange County may recall Briana and Ryan eloping to Vegas. The news was shared during an episode last season and wasn’t taken too well by Vicki. However, the two held an official ceremony in May and even announced the sex of their baby during the reception.
As for the question at hand, “Will Troy’s birth be seen on the show?” we don’t know for sure. However, filming on season 8 was due to begin at the end of this month, so it is possible. Either way, we’re sure to see the little guy at some point on the upcoming season!
