LITTLE People, Big World's Isabel Roloff gave fans a rare glimpse at her sweet baby boy two weeks after giving birth, gushing about the newborn after bringing him to meet sister-in-law Audrey.
The 25-year-old is notoriously private, especially when it comes to her son.
Isabel posted a photo of Mateo on her Instagram Story.
The baby was, for the most part, covered in the photo.
She proudly captioned the post: "I have a two week old," with an emoji that appeared to be welling up with tears.
Isabel's post also included a sticker, which read: "I love you so, so hard, like the most ever."
She hasn't shared many photos of her son since his birth, but has shown off snippets of the baby.
After his birth, Isabel posted a black-and-white photo of his fingers wrapped around hers.

She included several details about his birth, writing: "Mateo Tomás is here and he's perfect. He came one week ago 12/4 at 12:40 am."
NOT TO PLAN
Isabel revealed that Mateo's birth was not what she expected, sharing with fans: "Our birth story didn't go as planned; as we know life rarely ever does.
"These past few weeks have shown me what true surrender and trust looks like. I have never been more hands on my knees afraid and I have also never known a love so big."
She went on: "Seeing Jacob as a father is the most heartwarming thing I have ever witnessed. Being a mother is the most myself I have ever felt.
"Through all of this, I am just affirmed now more than ever that our angels are always looking out for us."
Although the post didn't feature Mateo's face, fans and those who know Isabel and Jacob, 24, gushed over the baby in the comments.
Other sister-in-law Tori wrote: "Ahhhh da wittle bingies!"
Audrey, who got to meet Mateo recently, also commented: "I love him so much And you are a warrior Izzy. So much of motherhood is surrendering and trusting and you've already learned to do that with so much grace. I love you!"
Despite the outpouring of love, post-baby life hasn't been easy for Isabel.
In a vulnerable online post, she confessed to fans that she was feeling "lonely and isolated" after welcoming Mateo.
She re-shared a text post which asked: "What is the one thing you wish you knew about the postpartum period or new motherhood prior to giving birth?"
The former TLC personality shared her answer above the photo, writing: "That even though so many have walked through this before you, it can feel incredibly isolating and lonely."
Then, during a Q&A with followers she shared more about her struggles.
Asked how she was doing, she admitted: "I'd be struggling right now if Jacob hadn't stepped up in so many ways."
She continued: "Thank God for good husbands."
