Becca Kufrin and her fiancé, Thomas Jacobs, have officially welcomed their first child — a baby boy — and excitedly shared the big news on Instagram on Saturday.
The Bachelorette star, 33, who announced her pregnancy earlier this year in April, reposted an adorable image originally shared by the Bachelor In Paradise star, 30.
In the photo, he snapped a quick photo while standing on the porch decorated for fall.
The mat placed in front of the door read ‘Baby Sleeping’. Please don’t ruin this for us.’ In the caption of the post, he simply typed “Home,” followed by a blue heart emoji.
With his stories, he uploaded the same photo and wrote additional text at the bottom that read: “Grateful.” Blessed. Love beyond words.’

Becca reposted the image to her own Instagram Stories, typing: “Enjoying all the love and cuddles for now, but we have a new little pumpkin,” followed by a yellow heart emoji.
The happy couple first revealed they were expecting their first child together earlier this year in April.
At the time, the couple shared a joint post with a slideshow of photos as they posed with ultrasounds, while their two adorable dogs also joined in on the photo session.
‘Party of 5 coming September 2023. Little Bebe, we can’t wait to meet you, hold you and watch you grow. We love you to the moon and back – mom and dad,” Becca and Thomas wrote to their fans and followers.
The following month, Kufrin revealed that they would be parents to a boy and shared a short gender reveal clip of Jacobs hitting a ball that burst into blue powder. “It’s a…LITTLE TOMMY,” the TV personality wrote.
A few months earlier, in July, the couple held an elaborate baby shower in her hometown of Prior Lake, Minnesota.
The party had a starry night theme. ‘Baby shown with so much love. We love you to the moon and back little man,” Kufrin wrote via Instagram.
‘Thank you to all our friends and family for spending the day with us. Words cannot express how full and happy our hearts are. I love you all!’

Excited: A few months earlier in July, the couple held an elaborate baby shower in her hometown of Prior Lake, Minnesota
The shower was attended by the couple’s closest ones, including Becca’s mother Jill Kufrin and Thomas’ mother Lisa Jacobs.
Thomas also shared photos from the baby shower on his Instagram page and captioned the post with, “First taste of a Minnesota summer, I guess.”
And Becca wouldn’t just leave her fiancé alone and wanted him to understand what she was going through.
“Okay, I’ve decided since I’m obviously very pregnant that we’re going to put Thomas to the test today at my baby shower,” she said on her Instagram Stories. “Okay, so we have the watermelon, some melons, and the Saran Wrap.”
Becca used the Saran Wrap to secure the melons to Thomas’ stomach and chest, simulating the weight she carries during her pregnancy.
“I’m trying the bump on for size,” Becca jokingly captioned a photo of Thomas playing cornhole with watermelons still attached to his body.
The lovebirds first crossed paths in 2021 while filming the seventh season of Bachelor In Paradise. Although Becca and Thomas went their separate ways during the season finale, they later reunited and rekindled their romance.
In May 2022, Becca popped the big question to Thomas and she revealed on social media that he said “Yes.” However, the two became engaged for a second time when Jacobs proposed later that same year in October.

Last year in June, Kufrin opened up about her proposal to Jacobs during an interview with We weekly.
“(Thomas) really is the most adventurous, fun, easy-going guy. But I think what makes this relationship with him different is that he’s really the only person (I’ve been with) who our values and morals are aligned with,” she said.
“Yes, we’re engaged and we’ve talked about what our marriage will look like and what a future with kids will look like and what we want our family dynamic to be.”
Becca continued, “He’s the first man who’s really aligned with me – on how we want to raise our children, what morals and values we want to instill in them.”

‘He’s also the first man who made me say, “I actually want to spend my whole life with you.” I want to start planning the wedding and I want to do all the things where in the past I’ve been like, “Oh no, it’s necessarily for me, but we’ll see.”
The reality star was previously engaged to Arie Luyendyk Jr., whom she met on The Bachelor in 2018. However, he later broke off their engagement.
She got engaged for the second time to Garrett Yrigoyen after their paths crossed while she was the star of The Bachelorette. However, their engagement was also later called off.
Thomas briefly dated Katie Thurston during his appearance on The Bachelorette in 2021.
