Jade Roper & Tanner Tolbert Welcome First Child: Emerson Avery

Congratulations are in order for Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert.

The Bachelor in Paradise stars welcomed their first child — daughter Emerson “Emmy” Avery Tolbert — on Thursday (August 17), she announced via 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. 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. #bestdayever #ilovemyfamily (Thank you, @avawomen for helping us start our family),” wrote the new mom.

The former Playboy model, 30, also shared a snapshot breastfeeding her newborn in the hospital bed.

“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,” she wrote.

And she went on to announce her daughter’s name.

“It’s official! Say hello to Emerson Avery Tolbert! “Emmy” for short. Born just a little early at exactly 36 weeks, she arrived weighing 6lbs 8oz and measuring 20″ long! She is such an angel and we can’t get enough of her! (Thank you @shophighway3 for her beautiful and soft personalized blanket! We love it!! Code BABYJANNER for 30% off if you’d love one too!)” she wrote.

The pair – who were wed in January 2016 in Dana Point, Calif. – became engaged after three weeks of TV dating on the finale of Bachelor in Paradise in 2015.

The couple – who also starred on Marriage Boot Camp last year – announced their pregnancy news in March.

Congratulations to them!
