Singer Karlien van Jaarveld and her husband Joe Breytenbach have welcomed their son Johannes Samuel into the world.

Johannes was born on 1 April, and after a few days in the hospital, he was finally on his way home.

"He is perfect and healthy," Karlien wrote on Instagram, sharing photos from the hospital.

Karlien has twin boys from a previous marriage and a daughter with her husband.

Karlien announced the pregnancy in October and told Huisgenoot that although the pregnancy was unplanned,  she couldn't be happier about the news and that Elah (2), Daniel and Eliah (5) are looking forward to welcoming another sibling.
