The former Bachelorette and her husband, Stephen Stagliano, welcomed their daughter on Thursday, Feb. 6, Pappas Stagliano confirms to PEOPLE.
“Our little angel is here! Daddy now has two loves in his life! Thank you all for the love and support,” the new father, 30, Tweeted Saturday to announce the arrival.
The couple, who wed in 2011, announced the pregnancy in August and Pappas Stagliano, 32, admitted giving birth to their first child would be her husband’s only — and greatest — gift.
“The baby is due Feb. 8 and Stephen’s birthday is Feb. 4. I told him all he’s getting for his birthday this year is a baby,” she joked to PEOPLE.
Pappas Stagliano celebrated their pending arrival with a pink-themed baby shower in January and admitted she was resisting the urge to stock her daughter’s drawers.
“I’ve desperately tried to refrain from buying tons of baby clothes because most moms have told me they barely used half of what they had. I’m a simple lady — less is more,” she told PEOPLE.
