Before her son was even born, Kat Von D made two things very clear to the general public. One, that his name would be Leafar. Two, that she was the goth version of moms selling MLM oils on Facebook by announcing she was having a drug-free birth, and swearing that her vegan son would never be touched by toxic vaccines. Actually, that is pretty goth; you’re not totally committed to the goth life until you start actively bringing back old-time illnesses that could result in rigor mortis. That was several months ago, and Kat finally gave birth to her son. Kat made the announcement on Instagram yesterday with a picture of her new baby and her husband, Leafar Seyer.
She announced that baby’s name is Leafar Von D Reyes. What does the D stand for? Diphtheria, maybe. Kat also said that she and Leafar Sr. would be taking some time off to bond with baby. As you probably already guessed, the baby announcement was very Punk Munsters.

Meet our beautiful baby boy, Leafar Von D Reyes. Thank you to all our beloved friends+family, fans+followers for your patience in us announcing his long awaited arrival! To be honest, my husband @prayers and I want to take the next 40 days [the 4th trimester] to focus on the baby and our amazing relationship transitioning into amazing parenthood – so, please excuse us if we’re not on here as much for a little while. Just know we love you all and thank you for all the words of love+support! ?
Leafar Sr. also announced the arrival of Leafar Jr. on Instagram:
“Whats about love? My wife and son are. It might not look like it on the outside but on the inside I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life. This year has given me so much to be happy and grateful for. I love you so much kitty I’ve never seen anyone fight for anything the way you fought to bring our son into this world. Magick is real and so is my love for you @thekatvond.”
Kat Von D or her husband don’t say exactly when their baby was born, but she was still very pregnant less than two weeks ago. And if this tweet is correct, Leafar Jr. was born at home.
37 weeks pregnant.
Almost there and we couldn’t be more excited and ready for our upcoming #homebirth !
Big shout out to all moms out there who’ve paved the way for us first-time moms… https://t.co/xBAjz88pDJ

Since Kat gave birth at home, she didn’t have to worry about pesky offers of a Vitamin K shot or antibiotic eye drops when the baby popped out. The only thing that would have made Kat and her husband recoil in horror more would be if a nurse tried to slip one of those blue and pink striped hospital-issue baby hats on Leafar Jr. “It was bad enough you put me in a pastel green hospital gown – please stop torturing us with your colors!”
