Welcome to the joys of motherhood, Desiree Hartsock.
E! News has confirmed that the former Bachelorette and her husband Chris Siegfried welcomed their first child into the world on Wednesday, a healthy baby boy named Asher Wrigley Siegfried. Their bundle of joy came in at 8 pounds and 20.5 inches.
“Words can’t even express the amount of love we feel for our baby boy Asher,” the new mom gushed in a statement to Us Weekly, who first reported the story.
“He has already brought so much joy into our lives in one day. He’s strong, healthy, happy, playful and warm. Chris and I are beyond blessed with this beautiful gift of life that we are excited to have as a part our family.”
In the days and weeks leading up to the special delivery, both mom and dad were documenting their journey to parenthood.
“The atmosphere and cheerful mood made this day I will always remember!” she wrote on her personal website. “The reality of our baby boy joining the world very soon finally set in with all of the wonderful advice and gifts we received. What a beautiful day!”
Back in April, E! News confirmed that the couple was expecting their first child. They would later announce the sex of their baby in August during baseball season.
Viewers first met Desiree during season 9 of The Bachelorette back when it premiered in May of 2013. After starting the season with 25 guys, it ultimately came down to Drew Kenney and Chris.
We think you know who got the final rose and much more. Congratulations to the couple on their big news!
