Ashley Salter has added another layer to her life: Motherhood!

The Bachelor alum is a new mom after welcoming son Brooks Hartman Brannen on Thursday, April 7, she announced on Instagram.

“Long stormy night brings a beautiful angel this morning,” Salter, 25, wrote alongside a photo of the new family of three, including fiancé Austin Brannen, shortly after the birth.

In February, Salter announced she was expecting her first child with real estate professional Brannen, simultaneously revealing the couple would be welcoming a son.

The news came five months after the parents-to-be confirmed their engagement. “We are very happy and look forward to spending our lives together,” they told PEOPLE.

Weeks before welcoming her baby boy, the mom-to-be celebrated her baby shower, sharing a photo of herself and her dad on the special day.

And while she kept selfies of her growing baby bump to a minimum on social media, Salter did share a sweet shot of her belly during a doctor’s visit.

“Week 36 at our checkup,” she captioned the photo.
