‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Kristina Kelly Welcomes First Child With Longtime Boyfriend Max Van Ville

We interrupt this on-going Scandoval to bring you some Vanderpump positivity.

Another ‘Vanderpump’ baby has arrived on the scene! 

Vanderpump Rules star Kristina Kelly announced on Sunday that she and longtime boyfriend Max Van Ville welcomed their first child together.

“You’re more than I could have ever dreamed of, welcome to the world River,” Kristina wrote on Instagram, along with a photo debuting the couple’s baby boy.


The former SURver, who returned to ‘VPR’ for Season 10 to support Katie Maloney amid her divorce from Tom Schwartz, reportedly knew she was pregnant while filming the current season, but chose to keep the news under wraps on the show. (Kristina’s boyfriend Max does not appear on the Bravo reality series.)

After sharing the news publicly, Kristina told Entertainment Tonight in February that she was very excited to welcome her little one

“I’ve wanted to be a mom forever,” she said. “I feel like my entire life, literally, like, even when I was little, my mom said I would take care of the other kids at daycare and stuff, try to change diapers. I’ve always been the voice of reason and the person who’s always like, ‘Guys, could we just all get along?’

“I feel like I’ve always tried to be a little bit of a mom, so there’s so many things to look forward to,” she added. 

Another thing Kristina is likely looking forward to is getting to share her motherhood journey with friends, including former ‘VPR’ co-star Stassi Schroeder, who is currently expecting her second child with husband Beau Clark

“A best friend for my little one!” Kristina commented on Stassi and Beau’s pregnancy announcement last month.

In another post, the longtime friends showed off their baby bumps. 

Kristina also credited Stassi for throwing her a baby shower earlier this year. 

“[Stassi,] I swear you were a party planner in another life,” she wrote. “Thank you for putting together this special day.” 

Naturally, Stassi was one of the first to send her congratulations to Kristina and Max after welcoming baby River. 

“The most perfect little angel boy I have ever seen and I’m not being dramatic,” Stassi commented on Kristina’s post.
