Another "Bachelor" baby is here!

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham have welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Alessi.

Luyendyk revealed the baby's name on Instagram early Thursday.

"This was first time she laid eyes on me and I’m forever changed Alessi Ren Luyendyk," he wrote.

Luyendyk, 37, announced on Instagram stories on Wednesday that Burnham had given birth.

“We have a BEAUTIFUL baby girl 6 lbs, 13 Oz. 20cm Long,” he wrote. “Mommy and baby are doing great, we are so incredibly happy.”

Burnham also posted about Alessi's birth.

"Alessi Ren Luyendyk.Born May 29, 2019 @ 2:09pm.6lbs, 13 oz.20 inches long.She is sweet, calm and @ariejr and I could not be more in love with her."

On Wednesday, Luyendyk had posted a photo on Instagram, indicating Burnham was getting ready to deliver the baby.

"IT’S HAPPENING!" he wrote.

Burnham, 27, had also posted from the hospital in anticipation of their family expanding.

"Is it time yet?" she wrote.

Luyendyk was certainly ready to become a dad, although he wasn't shy about expressing his love for seeing Burnham pregnant.

"She’s more than ready but I’m going to miss this belly," he wrote.

The couple, who tied the knot back in January, announced they were expecting a little bundle of joy last November.

"It’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives," the retired race car driver told Us Weekly at the time.

Luyendyk and Burnham got together on the 22nd season of "The Bachelor." He infamously popped the question to Becca Kufrin in the finale, but then changed his mind and proposed to Burnham on the live aftershow.

The "Bachelor" family welcomed another baby earlier this month, when Whitney Bischoff, who broke off her engagement to Chris Soules' after he selected her during his season, announced she and her husband had a baby boy.
