‘The Bachelorette’ Desiree Hartsock Welcomes First Baby
It’s another baby for the Bachelor Nation! The Bachelorette stars Desiree Hartsock and husband Chris Siegfried have welcomed their first baby, a boy!
Asher Wrigley Siegfried was born on Wednesday, October 19, weighing in at 8 pounds and measuring 20.5 inches.
Needless to say, Desiree is over-the-moon about her baby boy, releasing a statement to Us Weekly about the little guy:
“Words can’t even express the amount of love we feel for our baby boy Asher. He has already brought so much joy into our lives in one day. He’s strong, healthy, happy, playful and warm. Chris and I are beyond blessed with this beautiful gift of life that we are excited to have as a part our family.”
The couple has been together since 2013, after meeting on The Bachelorette. When presumed frontrunner Brooks Forester dropped out of the show at Final 3, Desiree realized her feelings had been misplaced, and that Chris had been her perfect match all along. In the Final Rose Ceremony, she eliminated Drew Kenney, and offered her Final Rose to Chris. The couple became engaged, and married in January 2015, roughly 20 months later.
Congratulations to the happy couple! All the best to Desiree, Chris, and baby Asher!
