Former Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft and husband Tye Strickland welcomed daughter, Ava Grace this past Wednesday afternoon.
“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,” Rycroft tells People Magazine.
Ava Grace Strickland weighed in at 6 lbs., 13 oz., and is the first child for the couple. The pair tied the knot in Mexico in December 2009.
Most Bachelor fans remember Rycroft not from anything odd or surprising she did on the show, but rather for what was done to her. Bachelor Jason Mesnick gave her his final rose in Season 13, but by the time of the reunion show, his feelings had changed. Rycroft was memorably dumped on the special, and watched as Mesnick transferred his affections to runner-up Molly Malaney right before her eyes.
It looks like Melissa, however, received her happy ending after all! Congratulations!
