The couple welcomed a baby girl on Thursday, August 17. “Everyone is happy and healthy. They mentioned they are hoping to leave the hospital as early as [Friday] afternoon,” the rep tells Us.

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.
