Social media sensation Edison Fan welcomed his first child into the world last week!

The Chinese-born New Zealander took to Instagram on Friday to unveil his newborn son, Frederic, to his 321,000 followers.

"I feel just pure joy," wrote Edison. "I have been planning about this moment since I was 22, and finally, he is here, my little Frederic."

He later shared a photo of himself holding Frederic in his arms and wrote: "Not bragging or anything, but Frederic is a champ. Eats and sleeps, and no crying in between. I hope it lasts!"

Edison shot to fame on Instagram a few years ago, before leaving New Zealand for China to work as a judge on the modelling reality series I Supermodel. He's since branched out to launch his own athletic clothing line, and now boasts over 10 million followers on Weibo.

Congratulations to Edison on his new baby and all his success!
