TikTok influencer Taylor Frankie Paul has given birth of her third child, a baby boy.

Now, she has thrilled her followers by annoucing the safe arrival of the baby boy, who has been called Ever.

Paul, aged 29, first shared the happy news of her pregnancy back in September by posting a video of her baby scan appointment to her TikTok page, and a series of photos which appear to be from a pregnancy photo shoot to her Instagram page.

The pregnancy reveal came just under a year after the somewhat controversial star announced she and boyfriend Dakota Mortensen had lost a baby through an ectopic pregnancy, and also just weeks after she pleaded guilty to an aggravated assault charge after she allegedly threw a chair at Mortensen in an incident which took place earlier in 2023.

Paul is already a mum to daughter Indy, aged six, and three-year-old son Ocean, who she shares with ex-husband Tate Paul. Ever is Mortensen’s first. Paul and Mortensen, 30, have had an on/off relationship since they began dating in the summer of 2022, months after Paul’s marriage ended, allegedly because she broke the rules in a swinging agreement that they had made with their friends.
