Former “Bachelorette” Trista Sutter and her husband Ryan are proud parents of a baby girl, People reports.

According to the magazine, Blakesley Grace was born on Friday, April 3, weighing in at 6 lbs., 2 oz and she is 19 inches long.

She is the first daughter for the couple, who welcomed son, Max, in July 2007.

Last December, Trista confirmed the baby news to AccessHollywood.com.

“The news is true. We are expecting a baby girl in April and we are ecstatic!” Trista told Access at the time.

And while the couple waited to find out the sex of their first child until he was born, she added that this time around, they wanted to know ahead of time.

“We didn’t find out that Max was a boy until he arrived, but decided to spoil the surprise this time,” she joked.

Both parents are elated to add a baby girl to their growing family.

“Although we would’ve been just as happy with a second boy, we are very much looking forward to giving Max a little sister!” Trista said.

Trista met Ryan, a firefighter, on ABC’s “The Bachelorette” in 2002 after Trista was the runner-up on “The Bachelor” in 2001.

The couple married in a lavish TV wedding in 2003.
