The baby had to be taken to the NICU because he was breathing too fast.

A few hours later, her newborn son was back in her arms.

“He has to be closely monitored but I’m so happy I’m holding him now,” she added, sharing a picture where she hugged him to her chest.

Taking to Instagram Stories on Saturday, Carson revealed that she had been on bed rest but had started to feel some contracts throughout the day.

During her second pregnancy, Carson’s baby bump “showed faster” and she experienced more nausea.

“I feel like this baby kicked my butt,” the Emmy winner wrote via Instagram Stories during a November Q&A session, adding that she was craving “spicy foods and tart/sour” snacks.

As for Leo’s feelings about his sibling status, the “So You Think You Can Dance” alum wrote that the toddler was “starting to understand.”
