A source reveals to PEOPLE that the reality star — who welcomed a daughter, her third child with husband Kanye West, on Monday — was in the delivery room when her surrogate gave birth.

“Kanye and I are happy to announce the arrival of our healthy, beautiful baby girl,” wrote the KKW Beauty mogul in a post titled, “She’s Here!”

Andy Roddick and Brooklyn Decker’s expanding family has outgrown their custom North Carolina lake house.

The retired tennis star and model turned entrepreneur welcomed their second child, a girl named Stevie, in early January. The news they were expecting, which Roddick shared during a speech at the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island, seems to have spurred a realization that the Blue Ridge Mountains getaway would soon no longer suit the family.

They listed the property, which they had built in 2013, in August for $3 million, according to Forbes.

“They bought a lot, they built a house, they started having a family, they moved, they made a profit,” their realtor, Liz Harris, tells PEOPLE in a statement approved by the couple.

The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath lakefront abode, which recently found a buyer for $2.35, sits on almost 3 acres in the vacation town of Cashiers.

The outdoor living space, know in the area as a “Carolina porch,” (above) includes a casual seating area, fireplace and a built-in kitchen perfect for grilling.

Inside, timber accents — including reclaimed wood lining many of the ceilings — add to the home’s modern-rustic feel. Large stone fireplaces in the open-plan kitchen and great room and wide-plank oak floors throughout make the space feel cozy year round.

One of the three guest bedrooms has an incredibly unusual camp-inspired feature: the beds, dressed in classic striped-wool blankets, are suspended from the ceiling.

The master bedroom has an impressive en suite that offers his and hers closets and toilet rooms, a freestanding tub (a favorite feature of Decker’s in the family’s Texas home) and a steel-and-glass shower.

The house is located on shore of Silver Springs lake, which offers fishing, swimming, kayaking, and access to a hiking trail trail that wraps around the lake, according the real estate listing.

The family of four also has an Austin farmhouse, which they use as their main residence. Decker recently finished an impressive top-to-bottom renovation on the 6,800-square-foot home, including a marble-clad kitchen and impressive walk-in closet, used as a showplace for Decker’s wardrobe organization platform, Finery.

Alec Baldwin is defending Woody Allen amid the ongoing controversy surrounding the famed director.

Baldwin, 59, called criticism of Allen over longstanding sexual abuse allegations “unfair and sad.”

“Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed. The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose,” he tweeted on Tuesday. “But it’s unfair and sad to me. I worked w WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career.”

In 2014, Dylan Farrow – who is one of the star’s three children with ex Mia Farrow — publicly claimed that Allen molested her as a child. Allen has long denied the allegations, which first surfaced during his explosive 1992 split from Mia. The director was not charged, though a Connecticut prosecutor said there was probable cause for a criminal case.

His son Ronan Farrow also penned an explosive column for the Hollywood Reporter, which addressed the sexual abuse claims and condemned the media for not asking Allen about the allegations and stars for working with him. In response, Allen told The Guardian, “I have no interest in all of that. I find that all tabloid stupidity.”

Baldwin went on to say that his intention is not to “dismiss or ignore such complaints,” but that such subjects should be treated “carefully.”

“Is it possible to support survivors of pedophilia and sexual assault/abuse and also believe that WA is innocent?” Baldwin tweeted. “I think so. The intention is not to dismiss or ignore such complaints. But accusing ppl of such crimes should be treated carefully. On behalf of the victims, as well.”
