Bachelor Stars Jade Roper & Tanner Tolbert Welcome Their Baby & Share Beautiful, Intimate Photos
Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert, who met during the second season of Bachelor in Paradise, are parents! The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter, on Thursday, August 17 -- a month ahead of the L.O.'s due date.
The reality stars haven't shared their baby girl's name with the world just yet, but they have posted several beautiful shots to Instagram. “We did it! Our little sweetheart is here! She arrived on her own terms, quickly and 4 weeks early, but she is perfect in every way, healthy and doing well," Roper wrote alongside their first family photo. "Precious little girl, there are no words to describe the feeling of holding you in our arms for this first time and looking into your beautiful eyes. We love you so much." Roper also captioned the photo #bestdayever and #ilovemyfamily and tagged her photographers Melissa & Beth Photography.
In a follow-up post, alongside a shot of herself breastfeeding her daughter in the hospital, the new mom, 30, wrote, "Never thought I'd post such a vulnerable pic as this, but nothing has ever felt more right and more natural than taking care of my little girl. Becoming a mother hasn't felt like some huge, transformational moment for me (besides giving birth haha). Instead, it feels like she's always been here somehow, like she has always been a part of me—almost like I don't know how yesterday existed without her. It's amazing how you can love someone so much, I now get the privilege of understanding a mother's endless love." So sweet!
Tolbert also took to Instagram to share several different shots of their newborn, including a beautiful photo of himself holding his little girl, with the caption, "For all the things my hands have held... the best by far is you...."
