“This was first time she laid eyes on me and I’m forever changed,” the race car driver,37, captioned a father-daughter shot via Instagram on Thursday, May 30. He also revealed his daughter’s name, Alessi Ren Luyendyk.
The former Bachelor added on his Story: “I’m so proud of @laureneburnham. You’re truly incredible and did so good today.”
In the photo, the new mom cuddled her daughter close. The real estate agent shared a photo of her own of the newborn crying on her chest, writing, “Alessi Ren Luyendyk. Born May 29, 2019 @ 2:09pm. 6lbs, 13 oz. 20 inches long. She is sweet, calm and @ariejr and I could not be more in love with her.”
The Bachelorette alum announced the arrival of their daughter on his Instagram Story on Wednesday. “We have a healthy BEAUTIFUL baby girl,” he wrote. “Mommy and baby are doing great, we are so incredibly happy.”
“Ever since we’ve gotten together, we wanted to fast-forward to this day,” the groom told Us at the time. “It’s been a year. That’s kind of crazy ‘cause I remember a year ago we were doing ‘happy couples [weekend on The Bachelor]’ and talking about getting married and wanting to do that, even last year, so it’s awesome that the day is finally here.”
