A flutter of pink balloons and confetti! Bachelor in Paradise stars Carly Waddell and her husband, Evan Bass, have welcomed their first child together — a baby girl, Us Weekly can confirm.
“Isabella Evelyn bass born at 1:58 6 pounds and 8 ounces 18 3/4 inch long! Everyone is healthy and happy – super smooth pregnancy!” the proud dad told Us in a statement.
The brunette beauty, 32, announced she was expecting her first bundle of joy with the former Bachelorette contestant, 35, via Instagram in August (Bass is already the father of three sons — Ensley, Nathan and Liam — from a previous relationship).
“SECRET IS OUT GUYS!!!! Evan and I are SO EXCITED to announce we are HAVING A BABY!!! What a beautiful, wonderful, wild year it has been and the adventure continues Feb 2018!” Waddell wrote at the time.
Shortly after sharing their happy news, the adorable couple, joined by Bass’ three sons, announced they were expecting a baby girl.
“This is our professional Gender Reveal photo! IT’S A GIRL!!!! I’m not the only girl anymore! Woo Hoo!!!” the former Bachelor contestant gushed alongside the sweet snap of her family.
That same month, the erectile dysfunction specialist told Us that he and his love found out she was pregnant just days after their June 2017 wedding. “We were in Mexico and it was actually a few days after our wedding and it was a little Mexican town called Salulita,” he explained. “She was late. I was like, ‘You’re really funny. Let’s go to a Mexican drugstore and get a test.’ We go into this drugstore and after she went and took the test and she comes out and was like, ‘I don’t know what that means. It’s in Spanish.’”
Bass continued: “I had to Google and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, you’re pregnant.’ We freaked out,” he told Us. “It was extra special to find out down the street from where we got married, engaged, everything.”
Waddell and Bass met on the set of Bachelor in Paradise and got engaged on the season 3 finale in September 2016. The twosome tied the knot in Mexico in a televised ceremony that was officiated by Bachelor host Chris Harrison and attended by Bachelor stars Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert.
