Talk about a little prince!

Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo (D–Clinton Hill) gave birth to a baby boy on Aug. 4 at age 42, she announced on her Facebook page on Monday.

“He is a healthy, beautiful, baby boy and I am in LOVE!!! I’M A MOM at 42!!!” she wrote.

The pol named her son Prince Noah Oluwafemi, and is recovering at her Clinton Hill home after 24 hours of labor.

Cumbo — who is running for re-election in the 35th District — campaigned until she went into labor on Aug. 3 and hopes to get back on the trail as soon as possible, but is first planning on spending time with her son and family, according to a spokesman.

In the meantime, she’s learning the ins and outs of motherhood.

The councilwoman is not the only local pol to receive a bundle of joy this year. Her colleague, Councilman Steve Levin (D–Brooklyn Heights), and his wife Ann had a baby girl in February.
