According to the site, the couple welcomed a baby girl on Thursday, August 17.

The reality stars, who met and got engaged on season 2 of the ABC hit reality series in 2015, announced they were expecting their first bundle of joy via Instagram in March.

“Feeling crazy grateful to finally share a little secret we’ve been keeping! We’re already absolutely head over heels in love with our little one. ❤❤❤ #babyjanner #hanginthereTanner #eatingfortwotherightway,” Roper captioned the adorable snap taken by Melissa & Beth Photography.

The former Playboy model, 30, later revealed their baby’s sex in May, sharing a picture of her sonogram on Twitter.

“Looook at her teeny little nose and chin!! She’s perfect #babysfirstphoto #jannerbaby,” she gushed.

Ahead of the baby’s arrival, friends and family honored the Bachelor alum at a flower-filled baby shower on July 16 at The Garland in Hollywood.

Friends shared snaps of Roper, who glowed in a one-shouldered lavender gown, to Instagram.

Roper and Tolbert, 30, who tied the knot in a televised ceremony that aired in February 2016, spoke about wanting to start a family during an interview with Us Weekly earlier this year. “We definitely have babies on the mind. We’re building a house, and it’s got a lot of room for children! I just turned 30 in December, so I’m ready. I would love a baby in 2017,” she said at the time.

Roper previously appeared on Chris Soules’ season 19 of The Bachelor in 2015. Meanwhile, Tolbert appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season 11 of season 11 of The Bachelorette in 2015.

Ciara Gives Birth to Baby No. 2, First Child With Russell Wilson

Oh, happy day! Ciara has given birth to her second child, her first with husband Russell Wilson.

The happy mom revealed she gave birth to a baby girl on Friday, April 28. Sharing the news in an Instagram post that showed her cradling her bump on the beach, Ciara wrote, “Dear Sienna Princess Wilson, No matter how big the wave, we will always be your calm in the storm. We Love You. Love, Mommy & Daddy. 7:03 pm. 7lbs 13 oz. 4.28.2017. Photo By Daddy.”

The “I Bet” singer, 31, announced in October that she and Wilson, 28, were expecting. “On this special Birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family.. and I’m excited to Finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give…” she captioned an Instagram photo of the NFL player touching her growing belly.

The news came three months after Ciara — who shares son Future Jr., 2, with her ex-husband, Future — and Wilson tied the knot in England on July 6. Wilson popped the question in March 2016, and the couple stayed abstinent until they got married.

“I really believe that when you focus on a friendship, you have the opportunity to build a strong foundation for a relationship — and once you know you’re really great friends and you’re what we call ‘equally yoked,’ where you share the same values or the same outlook on life, it kind of sets the tone,” Ciara explained of their decision to wait to have sex in an interview with Cosmopolitan South Africa for its February 2017 issue. “Knowing that you’ll always have the friendship and that you can always go back to it is very important, and very powerful.”

“I have to give credit to my husband for sharing those views. It’s awesome how it all worked out,” she added of the Seattle Seahawks quarterback. “We women think with our hearts and with our minds. When we see a guy, we envision what he’s like and whether this could be something special. Guys see us from an exterior point of view — that’s something I learned along the way as a woman.… You shouldn’t feel like you have to give your body away to get someone to like you.”

Wilson, for his part, gushed about Ciara during an appearance at the Rock Church in July 2016. “She’s everything you could ever want, honestly,” he said at the time. “Funny thing is, I told somebody that that’s the girl I wanted to be with before I ever met her. I told somebody, ‘I’m probably going to end up with Ciara.'”
