Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, season 13 The Bachelor alums, welcomed their first child, daughter Riley Anne, on Thursday, Mar. 14.

Riley Ann, who measured 18 inches long and weighed 6lbs., 8 oz, was born in the couple’s hometown of Seattle, Wash. “What’s amazing to me is when Molly is holding Riley, her eyes do not come off her,” Jason, the proud father, told People. “I’m already seeing how much Molly loves the baby.”

Jason also shared why he believes Molly went into labor when she did. Apparently, the former The Bachelor star was told by a friend that massaging a woman’s feet between the ankle and the Achilles would help her go into labor. “I did it last night for about three minutes and Molly woke me up at about three this morning, after she’d been up for about an hour and a half, so maybe it does work?” Jason revealed.

Jason and Molly met while filming season 13 of The Bachelor – however, Molly didn’t actually receive the final rose. Jason initially gave the rose and a ring to Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Melissa Rycroft, who he broke up with during the "After the Final Rose" episode to get Molly back. They were married the following year. While Jason has 8-year-old son Tyler from a previous marriage, Riley Anne is the couple’s first child together.
