A time for celebration! Bachelor in Paradise star Jade Roper welcomed her first child with husband Tanner Tolbert, their rep confirms to Us Weekly.
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.
