German supermodel Heidi Klum and her husband, British pop star Seal, are new parents.

The baby, a boy named Henry Günther Ademola Dashtu Samuel, was born late Monday in a Los Angeles-area hospital. Everyone is "happy and healthy," a source tells PEOPLE.

The couple will soon bring the baby – who carries the last name of his dad, born Sealhenry Samuel, and got the name Günther from Heidi's father – home to their Bel Air estate to join Klum's 16-month-old daughter, Leni.

This past March, Klum and Seal announced they were expecting a child together. On May 10, they were wed on a beach in Mexico, near Seal's home on Mexico's luxurious Costa Careyes.

Klum, 32, had Leni with her ex-boyfriend, Italian businessman Flavio Briatore. But from the start of Seal's and Klum's romance, which began while Klum was pregnant with Leni in February 2004, the singer, 42, has acted like a father to the little girl.

More on this story

In May 2004, he celebrated Leni's birth at the New York City hospital with champagne, and he dedicated his latest album, Best: 1991-2004, first to "my daughter Leni"; then to Klum and her parents.

As a pal told PEOPLE, "He is crazy about Leni. He is always carrying her around. He is the first one to change a diaper."

"What I love most about fatherhood," said Seal, is "the opportunity to be a part of the development process of a new life."

As for Klum, earlier this year she said during an interview on German TV about her life with Seal and Leni, "We all sing a lot together. I sing a lot, even with my voice."

And now they have a quartet.
