And that makes two! Renee Oteri Maynard welcomed her second child, a son named Jax Bracy with her husband Bracy Maynard on Thursday, Jan. 15, the former Bachelor contestant tells Us Weekly. Oteri is already mom to 9-year-old son Ben from a previous relationship.

“Jax is here! We're all beyond thrilled! Ben is the proudest older brother and Bracy is in love — we're all so happy,” Oteri tells Us of the new addition to their family, who weighed 7 lb., 3 oz. and measured 21 inches long. “It was such a long labor, but Bracy nailed it! I also had a girlfriend who is a doula and she was a rockstar! She got us all playing Heads Up during the early labor to kill time,” the now mom of two added.

And now being out-ruled by all boys in their home, Oteri, who was a contestant on Juan Pablo’s season 18 of The Bachelor, says she “would love to have another!”

“I really want 3!” she tells Us. “It would be so much fun to have a girl next, but I'd be just as happy with three boys.”

The proud mama also has her hands full with her new jewelry line, JaxBee Jewelry, was named after her kids.

Oteri and Maynard tied the knot in March 2014, just three weeks after Us revealed the couple were engaged.
