"@theresa_m_jones you deserve all the praise for blessing us with this beautiful baby girl. #3Under30 #WeAreOutnumbered #MuchNeededManCave #BirthdayTwins #TryingToWakeHerUp #SleepingLikeHerDaddy," he continues.

The couple, who is already parents to 5-year-old daughter Easton and 2-year-old son Maddox, first shared the news about baby No. 3 back in January with photos of their sex reveal.

They posted photos of themselves alongside their children as they shot pink confetti and powder out of mini canons, indicating they were expecting a baby girl. 

"3🎀," Theresa captioned her post, which also included a photo of herself cradling her growing baby bump. Another photo showed a cake topped with blue and pink sprinkles and a question mark in icing.

T.J., 29, shared another photo from the reveal, writing in the caption, "Clearly i didnt know what to expect from this exploding gender reveal thingy! 😂." 

In the snap, the father of two has a shocked expression on his face as he helps Easton with one of the confetti cannons.

The couple's oldest child will be happy about her new sibling, as the wide receiver added, "Easton wanted a baby sister soooo yea!! 😉."

Theresa and T.J. tied the knot in 2018 after getting engaged in 2015.

The reality TV star recently returned for season 36 of the MTV competition show, which premiered in Dec. 2020, after taking a long hiatus after welcoming her first two kids.
