Architect-turned-designer Laura Bennett, a finalist on the third season of Project Runway, has welcomed her sixth child, a boy.

Her son Finn was born at 10:46 a.m. on December 1st, and weighed in at 8 lbs. Laura says her newest child is “so cute” and that she is feeling fine.

Already a mom to four sons and a daughter (daughter Cleo, 18, from a previous marriage and sons Peik, 10, Truman, 7, Pierson, 4, and Larson, 3), Laura, 43, discovered she was pregnant while filming the Bravo reality competition.

She didn’t fuss about not having maternity clothes with her: “I’d wear these stretchy T-shirt dresses,” she told People magazine in September.

In other Project Runway baby news, Heidi Klum also recently welcomed a son. And judge Nina Garcia is expecting her first child in March.
