Bekah Martinez, formerly of "The Bachelor", gave birth to her second child with her friend Grayston Leonard.
The 25-year-old, who appeared in the season of Arie Luyendyk Jr., announced the birth of her son on Instagram on Saturday morning.
"He is. HERE," she wrote in the caption with a heart emoji. "Happily born in our living room at 2:52 on June 19th. 7 pounds, 8 ounces."
Martinez shared a series of three photos: a picture of her newborn in her arms, one that probably held him shortly after his birth, and another picture of herself.
"No name yet; suggestions welcome," she added in the heading. Birth story is coming soon. "
Your contribution has been received with a number of congratulations, including many from Bachelor Nation.
"I'm so inspired by you and your home births!" Ali Manno (née Fedotowsky), a former "Bachelorette" star and mother of two, commented. "Congratulations to you and your family. It's perfect."
And the former "Bachelor" Nick Viall also commented. "Amazing congratulations," he wrote.
He also met Martinez's request for a name. "Suggestion: Nicholas. Definitely not Chad.", Commented Ashley Iaconetti Haibon, who had already appeared in several "Bachelor" series. "So beautiful !! You are so strong! Congratulations !!!"
Martinez announced her second pregnancy on Instagram around Thanksgiving last year. The contribution was simple: a family-style photo. She posed with Leonard and her daughter Ruth while holding up a sonogram photo.
The birth on Friday was Martinez's second. After announcing her first pregnancy in September 2018, she gave birth to Ruth on February 2, 2019 at home. Three days later, she also shared photos of the water birth on Instagram.
In a video posted at the time of her first pregnancy, she revealed that motherhood was something she had always dreamed of.
"I wanted to be a mother all my life," she said in the video. "I've always wanted that."
