Jillian Harris is officially a proud mom!
The former Bachelorette welcomed her first child with longtime partner Justin Pasutto Friday morning, People reports.
According to the publication, the baby boy came in at 6 lbs., 12 oz., and was born bright and early at 6:02 a.m.
Back in July, the reality star gathered her close family and friends together for a baby shower in Vancouver, Canada. Hosted by Events by Aly, the celebration featured members from Bachelor Nation including Kaitlyn Bristowe.
“In a world full of hate, surround yourself with beautiful souls like this one,” the lucky guest wrote on Instagram while cradling her friend’s baby bump. “Don’t let our next generation continue to hate. Teach kids to be kind, by being kind. #jillysbean.”
Jillian later expressed her gratitude for the thoughtful day where she asked guests to make donations for BabyGoRound in lieu of personal gifts.
“Today was unreal. I am literally staring at this picture lost for a caption, It’s been 20 minutes and all I can think of is, this baby is SO loved already,” she wrote on social media. “This was probably one of the most beautiful events I have ever been to, and the fact that it was in honor of our little bean, has me beaming with excitement, love, pride & gratitude.”

Back in March, Jillian and her longtime boyfriend announced they were expecting their first child together. At the same time, the Love It or List It, Too host explained why marriage isn’t the biggest priority at this time.
“It’s a wonderful thing to have, but for me I just want that to happen when we’re both ready,” she explained to E! News at the wedding of Bachelor in Paradise stars Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert. “In the meantime, it doesn’t make our relationship any less strong. So whenever he’s ready, it’s fine!”
Congratulations to the couple on their happy family news.
