It's a GIRL for "BacheloretteAli Fedotowsky and her fiance Kevin Manno. The couple have just welcomed their first child together, and the new mom took to Instagram to announce the news.

"Welcome to the world Molly Sullivan Manno," she wrote alongside the beautiful black and white shot of the newborn snuggling on her chest. "Born at 8:22am on 7/6/2016 weighing 7lbs 6oz and measuring 22 inches long. You are absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way. @KevinManno & I love you more than we will ever be able to put in words. Thank you for making me a mommy."

Awww... congrats, guys!

And how cute is that name?! Fedotowsky explained in her post that it is a combo of her and Kevin's late grandmothers' monikers. "Molly Sullivan is named after two very important women in our lives," she elaborated to Us Weekly. "My late grandmother, Molly Fedotowsky, and Kevin's late grandmother, Eva Sullivan, will both live on in our little girl."

So sweet! And while she didn't mention it, we're betting Fedotowsky is happy to finally be off the modified bed rest due to uterine irritability, which kept her from participating in all the fun baby prep over the last few months. "Modified bed rest basically means that I have to take it super easy," she recently explained to People. "I can't be doing dishes or laundry, or even walking my dog. I have to be on the couch with my feet up and resting."

Hmmm. With a new baby and, hence, lots of sleepless nights ahead, something tells us the new mama may actually be longing for those days pretty soon!
