The 36-year-old recently commemorated Glorious’s birth with a heartfelt Instagram tribute after giving birth to him in February.
Alongside some precious snaps of her ass, she wrote: ‘Here he is…. Our most important man, Glorious!
“He came into our lives on 2.2.22 and completed our family. He’s the happiest, most laid-back baby and his big sisters love him, #GloriousHartKirkham’

Glorious is Jessica’s second child with her fiancé, who has seven-year-old daughter Wren from a previous relationship.
The former Victoria’s Secret model announced in June last year that she was expecting her second child and confirmed she was six weeks pregnant.
Her happy announcement came just seven months after she and James, 37, welcomed their daughter.

Jessica and James made headlines when they named their little girl Baby, after the popular character from the 80s movie, Dirty Dancing.
Jessica said she chose to add a personal touch to the name as well.
“My official name is Jessica-Rae, after my mother Rae, and I wanted Baby to have something in her name that related to me, since of course she takes Kirkham as her last name,” she explained.
“I was never a fan of the double surname, so we gave Baby the hyphenated Rae as well. Her official name is Baby-Rae Kirkham, but we just call her Baby.’
But one person in particular wasn’t happy with the decision: Jessica’s friend Sasha Benz, who named her daughter Baybi nearly three years ago.
Sources with knowledge of the situation told The Sun-Herald that the naming had caused a rift between the two women, but Sasha confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that the pair have since patched things up.
“Of course Jess and I are still friends. We talked about it a few weeks ago — and I’m glad she has a name she loves for her beautiful girl,” Sasha said at the time.
A source told the Sun-Herald that Sasha was “stunned” that her close friend would copy her daughter’s “unique” name – and while she didn’t dispute this, she did confirm that their feud was really over.
“This is her moment and I want her to enjoy this beautiful part of becoming a mother,” Sasha added.
“Baybi is almost three now and our new babies are only a few weeks apart, so it’s more important that they all grow up knowing there are more important things to care about, and both Jess and I agree on that. ‘
