Congratulations to Kendra Spears and her husband Prince Rahim Aga Khan, who have welcomed their first child together. The fashion model, now known as Princess Salwa Aga Khan, gave birth to a baby boy on Saturday.

The news was announced on the official website of the Ismaili Muslim Community – a group of people united in their allegiance to Prince Rahim's father, His Highness Aga Khan IV.

"Prince Rahim and Princess Salwa have announced the arrival of their first child, a son named Prince Irfan, born in Geneva, Switzerland on 11 April," the statement read, adding: "Both mother and child are in good health."

The official statement also expressed "the great happiness of the Aga Khan and Spears family" and prayers for "Prince Irfan's long life and wellbeing."

The couple announced with the "greatest happiness" that they were expecting their first child together in October.

The 26-year-old fashion model earned her royal title after marrying her husband, 43, in a private ceremony in September 2013.

Kendra, who goes by the title, "a model, among other things," wore a traditional ivory and gold dress lined with gold embroidery on her big day. The brunette beauty also had her hair swept back in a classic bun, showing off her thick diamond earrings and matching tiered necklace.

Prince Rahim and Kendra wed in a picturesque service in the grounds of the Château de Bellerive, overlooking the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland.

The couple were surrounded by their family and close friends for the celebration, and, following in the royal family's custom, had a traditional Muslim ceremony.

Kendra has previously been compared to Cindy Crawford thanks to a similar mole on her upper lip, and has modelled for respected fashion houses such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Dolce & Gabbana.

The Seattle-born star is not the only model to marry into the royal family. Her father-in-law married British model Sarah "Sally" Croker-Poole, and his grandfather was married to iconic actress Rita Hayworth.
