Jillian revealed she and Justin were expecting back in March with a sweet Instagram post and similarly, announced the little guy’s birth through the photo-sharing app, as well.
The Canadian TV star introduced her little boy to the world on Friday, beaming, “World, meet little Leo… (Queue heart explosion ❤️💣) The last 48 hours have been the best of our lives. Thank you @slipperygoose for giving me the greatest gift of all.” Aww!
Jillian, who has most recently made appearances on the HGTV show Love It or List It and works as an interior designer, had a baby shower in Vancouver, Canada last month, with a long guest list including Bachelor Nation star Kaitlyn Bristowe.
“In a world full of hate, surround yourself with beautiful souls like this one,” the lucky guest wrote on Instagram while cradling her friend’s baby bump. “Don’t let our next generation continue to hate. Teach kids to be kind, by being kind. #jillysbean,” Kaitlyn posted on Instagram, cradling Jillian’s bump at the event. Jillian had guests donate to BabyGoRound instead of personal gifts.
The new mommy was runner-up for season 13 of The Bachelor with Jason Messick and went on to be the Bachelorette for season season 5. She was engaged to Ed Swiderski, but the pair broke it off in 2010. Jillian has been dating Justin for four years. We are so happy for the new parents!
