Jax Taylor And Brittany Cartwright Welcome Their First Child

Boy oh boy! It's a son for former Vanderpump Rules resident bad boy Jax Taylor and wife Brittany Cartwright

The couple announced their departure from Rules in December 2020, citing their young family as a cause for leaving the Bravo reality series. "We are excited to take this time to focus on our growing family and share with you our new endeavors," Jax captioned on Instagram. While there were rumors of Brittany and Jax's firing, their lives post-show were further plagued by hardship. Radar Online reported in April 2021 that Jax allegedly owes over $1.2 million in unpaid taxes, and Brittany had a difficult pregnancy. "It's been exhausting," Brittany shared on Instagram in November 2020, as reported by Hollywood Life. 

Now, all that perseverance has paid off and Jax and Brittany are happy parents to their newborn. Keep scrolling to find out all the details about their bundle of joy!
