Former ‘Bachelor’ Contestant Melissa Rycroft is a new mommy! How exciting!

Melissa Rycroft and her hubby Tye Strickland welcomed the birth of their baby girl on Feb. 16. Ava Grace Strickland weighed in at 6 lbs., 13 oz.

We love Melissa Rycroft’s shimmering sequined baby bump!

“Our lives have changed so much in the last two years and today we’ve been blessed with the best change ever, our beautiful baby girl,” the onetime Bachelor contestant and Dallas Cowboys cheerleader said in a statement shortly after giving birth in Dallas, Tex.

Melissa, 27, and Tye married in December, 2009 in Mexico. They dated on and off, but fell back in love after Bachelor Jason Mesnick broke things off with Melissa.

Melissa Rycroft tells us she doesn’t want parenting advice from her ex, Jason Mesnick!

Ava is the couple’s first child. Congrats to Melissa and Tye on their new arrival!

This lady has been using everything that happens in her life – all common events such as getting engaged, getting married and having a baby – for her financial gain. Now she won’t even post her daughter’s picture on her FB account because she is holding back waiting for a magazine deal. SICK! How much longer is her 15 minutes ? Someone tell me, please!

their a reality tv couple from the show the Bachelorette. at least they gave their daughter a normal name unlike so many in hollywood though weird names in h town aren’t a new phenomenon nor is a girl having a boys name as a first or middle name for example Michael Learnerd the actress that plyaed mama Olivia on the Waltons though she wasn’t the original actress to Play the part academy award winner Patricia Neal was which is why the mothers name was changed to Olivia from Mary Ellen in honor of her eldest daughter who had died 9 years before the pilot at age 7 from measeals. or Melissa Newman’s middle name is Stewart after screen writter Stewart Stern who was/is a dear friend of her parents and even served as the best man at their wedding 3 years and 7 7/8ths months before in Las Vegas
