On Tuesday, July 30, Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert of Bachelor in Paradise welcomed their second child into the world. Shortly after his birth, Tanner spoke with PEOPLE. He said, “We are over the moon for our little guy. He came into this world fast at 7 lbs., 9 oz and 20 in. long. Mom and baby boy are doing great. Emmy just met her little brother — she greeted him with a kiss on the head, so I guess that means she will allow us to bring him home! We are officially a family of four!”
The couple has yet to share any updates on Instagram announcing the birth of their son. On Monday, Jade shared an Instagram story and said, “Okay, I don’t want to keep you all in suspense. Ha Ha. No baby yet. I feel my body is being a tease. I’ll jump on here later on Stories and fill you guys in. Thanks for all the good luck and wishes. I love you all.”
The Bachelor in Paradise parents have already set up an Instagram account for their new son. They updated it a few times throughout the pregnancy, but they may start updating it regularly soon since he has arrived.
Prior to that Instagram story, fans commented on Jade’s Instagram posts saying that they thought she still had another month to go. They thought she would make it to 40 weeks gestation. Just two weeks ago, she shared a cute bump update and said that she was 36 weeks along. She wrote, “Excited to spend however much time I have left with this little guy in my belly.”

Officially the most pregnant I’ve ever been! Yesterday marked 36 weeks exactly, which was the point where I gave birth to Emmy. Excited to spend however much time I have left with this little guy in my belly. 🤗❤️ (Swipe to see same dress with Emmy at 35 weeks and baby Tolbert here at 36.)

In January, Jade shared cute photos of her family on the beach. In the photos, the family is holding sonogram photos. Jade wrote, “Baby #2 is adding to our crew!! We are overjoyed our bundle of love will be joining us in August! We’ve been dreaming of you for a while now, and you are already loved beyond imaginable, sweet baby.”
Shortly after, the couple shared their gender reveal and announced that their second child is a boy. They are already the parents of Emerson, who they call Emmy. Emmy is almost two years old.
The couple has yet to announce their baby’s name. As a joke in a recent Instagram post celebrating Chris Harrison’s birthday, Jade said, “Also, I think it’s appropriate and fitting that if I go into labor on this very special day, we name our son Harrison in your honor”.

Happy Birthday, @chrisbharrison! We feel so honored to know you as a friend and to have you be a part of our ever growing love story. Also, I think it’s appropriate and fitting that if I go into labor on this very special day, we name our son Harrison in your honor (sorry, @tanner.tolbert 😆)!
