Melissa Rycroft Gives Birth To Baby Boy

It’s a boy!

Melissa and her husband Tye welcomed their first son, Beckett Thomas, on Sunday, April 20 in Dallas, Texas.

Beckett was born happy and healthy at 7 lbs., 7 oz., measuring a total of 19.2 inches. 

“The Easter Bunny brought a special delivery to Melissa Rycroft and Tye Strickland on Sunday in Dallas, TX.  Rycroft gave birth to the couple’s second child in the afternoon of April 20, 2014, a son Beckett Thomas, 7lbs. 7ozs and 19.2 inches.  Married for 4 years, they are also the parents of Ava Grace, who was born in February 2011,” a rep for the couple told on Monday, April 21.

“This little guy has been teasing us about his arrival for the last month so it is only fitting that he surprise us with his arrival on Easter Sunday. He’s perfect and beautiful. Ava can’t wait for us to bring him home to be able to show us all of the big sister duties she’s been practicing,” Melissa told in a statement.

Melissa and Tye have been married since 2009, and they are also the proud parents of their daughter, Ava.

Beckett Thomas Was Born Late

Just four days before Beckett finally arrived, Melissa wrote on Twitter that he was running a bit late.

Little man has officially cooked longer than his big sis did. I know babies come when they’re ready but I’m ready to help him pack his bags!” the Dancing with the Stars champion joked.

Melissa and Tye announced that they were expecting again in October 2013, and one month later they shared the news that their baby was a little boy.

I thought she was married to this guy. Does she think she’s such a huge celeb that she needs to use only her maiden name like the rest of them do?

Lol…I thought the same thing. She probably does it because if she goes by her married name, the few people that remember her from “The Bachelor” won’t know who she is anymore!

I wonder who this baby will take after? Or maybe she used donor eggs like with Ava.

Did she really use donor eggs with Ava? Why? Can she not produce eggs?
