Former Bachelor star Melissa Rycroft has welcomed her second child with husband Tye Strickland. The couple already has 3-year-old Ava Grace.
Rycroft gave birth to a son named Beckett Thomas on Easter Sunday.
"This little guy has been teasing us about his arrival for the last month so it is only fitting that he surprise us with his arrival on Easter Sunday. He's perfect and beautiful," Rycroft told E! News. "Ava can't wait for us to bring him home to be able to show us all of the big sister duties she's been practicing."
On April 16, the Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars winner took to Twitter to say she was ready to meet her son.
“Little man has officially cooked longer than his big sis did. I know babies come when they're ready but I'm ready to help him pack his bags!” she wrote.
