‘Bachelorette’ alums, Desiree Hartsock & hubby Chris Siegfried have welcomed a beautiful baby BOY into the world! This is the couple’s 1st child together and we could not be happier for the adorable pair. WHAT an exciting time! Get all the details about Desiree and Chris’ little bundle of joy here.
Desiree Hartsock, 30, and Chris Siegfried, 30, are new parents! The reality TV stars welcomed their baby Asher Wrigley Siegfried on Oct. 19 and it’s obvious the couple are already head-over-heels in love! Their child’s birth was announced via a statement to Us Weekly, and we are SO excited for the lovebirds to experience parenthood for the first time.
“Words can’t even express the amount of love we feel for our baby boy Asher,” Desiree gushed. “He has already brought so much joy into our lives in one day. He’s strong, healthy, happy, playful and warm. Chris and I are beyond blessed with this beautiful gift of life that we are excited to have as a part our family.”
At the time of his birth, Asher weighed in at 8 pounds and measured 20.5 inches.
Desiree and Chris, who met on the ninth season of The Bachelorette, announced the sex of their baby back in August with an adorable series of Instagram pictures. “We are so excited to share that we will be having a little baby BOY!” Desiree captioned the sweet photo she posted to her own account of her and Chris holding their dachshund and a baseball that reads “It’s a Boy.” Aw!

And we just love how Desiree has kept her fans up to date on her pregnancy journey. Ever since announcing the big news in April, the former Bachelorette shared many photos of her growing baby bump on social media. “The best part about this new chapter in life is going through it all with the quirkiest, most thoughtful, and lovable man I know,” Desiree captioned one family photo featuring Chris’ arms around her belly. “We can’t wait to be parents to the precious lil soul growing inside me.”
And now the time has finally come! We are SO excited for the proud new parents and can’t wait to learn even more about their baby son. Congrats again, you two!
