One of the only lasting couples from The Bachelor has welcomed a baby. Season 13′s Jason Mesnick and his wife Molly Mesnick (formerly Molly Malaney) are now the parents of a healthy baby girl who they named Riley Anne. The Bachelor baby arrived yesterday, March 14 in Seattle, Washington.
Riley Anne Mesnick weighed in at 6 lbs., 8 oz., and is 18¾ inches long. “What’s amazing to me is when Molly is holding Riley, her eyes do not come off her,” Jason tells PEOPLE. “I’m already seeing how much Molly loves the baby.”
Jason joked that Riley “has a full head of hair — probably more than I’ll have in the next few years.”
On Wednesday, a friend texted Molly and told her that if a woman’s feet are massaged, specifically the area between the ankle and the Achilles, it will put her 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.
Riley joins big brother Tyler, 8, from Jason’s first marriage. “Ty has been asking for a sibling for so long,” Jason says. “He was here earlier holding her and kissing her and it was really, really cute. We’re so happy.”
On his season of The Bachelor, Jason had proposed to Melissa Rycroft but during the After The Final Rose special following the airing of the season finale, he called of the engagement and announced that he had chosen the wrong woman. From there, he and Molly began dating and eventually tied the knot on February 27, 2010.
