Melissa Rycroft & Husband Welcome Second Child

The “Bachelor” alum and her husband Tye Strickland welcomed their second child — a son named Beckett Thomas — over the weekend, her rep confirms to Us Weekly.

Their new bundle of joy, weighing in at 7 lbs., 7 oz., was born in Dallas, Texas.

Little Beckett joins big sister Ava Grace, who turned 3 in February.

“This little guy has been teasing us about his arrival for the last month so it is only fitting that he surprised us with his arrival on Easter Sunday,” Rycroft, 31, said in a statement. [via Us Weekly]

“He’s perfect and beautiful. Ava can’t wait for us to bring him home to be able to show us all for the big sister duties she’s been practicing,” she added.

Rycroft, who appeared on season 13 of The Bachelor, tied the knot with Strickland in Mexico in 2009. The couple announced their second pregnancy last fall.
