Sean & Catherine Lowe
Sean and Catherine met on season 17 of The Bachelor and were married in January 2014. They had their first child, Samuel Thomas, in July of 2016, and little brother Isaiah Hendrix joined him in May of 2018. The proud parents regularly document their sons’ adorableness on their respective Instagram accounts.
And things just got even cuter: on Dec. 23, they welcomed daughter Mia, announcing her arrival on Instagram.
The Bachelor contestant Bekah Martinez learned that she was pregnant three months into her relationship with boyfriend Grayston Leonard.
The then-23-year-old reality star — whose pregnancy was unplanned — told PureWow, “I was in disbelief and thought, ‘Is this really happening?'”
She continued, “I immediately called Grayston and then went across the street to the Dollar Tree and bought two more pregnancy tests. They, of course, were both positive.”
Carly & Evan Bass
It wasn’t love at first sight for Carly and Evan, who met on Bachelor in Paradise‘s third season and wed a year later in a televised ceremony that aired during the show’s fourth season, but it’s nothing but love now. Just a month after they said “I do,” the couple announced that they were expecting their first child together — Evan has three sons from a previous relationship — and in February 2018, introduced daughter Isabella Evelyn to the world.
The proud parents welcomed baby number 2, son Charles “Charlie” Wolfe Bass, on Nov. 12, 2019.
Jade & Tanner Tolbert
The couple, who met and fell in love on the second season of Bachelor in Paradise and tied the knot on Jan. 24, 2016, welcomed their first child, daughter Emerson Avery, on Aug. 17, 2017. “Precious little girl, there are no words to describe the feeling of holding you in our arms for this first time and looking into your beautiful eyes,” Jade wrote on Instagram. “We love you so much.”
Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham
Though the start of their happily ever after was a bit of a rocky one–Luyendyk Jr. famously broke up with winner Becca Kufrin to be with Burnham–it looks like all’s well that ends well!
The pair were married in January 2019 and, four months later, welcomed their first child. “We have a healthy, BEAUTIFUL baby girl,” the former bachelor announced on his Instagram Stories on May 29, 2019. “6lbs, 13oz, 20cm long. Mommy and baby are doing great, we are so incredibly happy.”
Season 17 Bachelor finalist AshLee Frazier found her happily ever after with husband Aaron Williams when they wed in March 2017 — and in September 2018, they welcomed their first child, daughter Navy Lee.
“Aaron and I are madly in love with Navy Lee,” Frazier, 37, told PEOPLE exclusively of her new addition. “She is more beautiful and precious than we ever could have imagined. Our hearts are overflowing!”
She explained to E! News of her baby girl’s moniker, “Her name came from my dad, Bruce Lee. When I was adopted, my parents changed my name from Ashley to AshLee. It was important to them to make sure I felt as part of the family. Aaron and I wanted to continue that tradition.”
Ali Fedotowsky & Kevin Manno
While the two didn’t meet on Fedotowsky’s season of The Bachelorette, their love story is as much of a fairy tale as anyone else’s. The happy couple welcomed their first child, Molly Sullivan Manno, on July 6, 2016. “You are absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way,” the new mom captioned a photo of her newborn. “@KevinManno & I love you more than we will ever be able to put in words. Thank you for making me a mommy. (Named after our late grandmothers Molly Fedotowsky and Eva Sullivan.)” On May 24, 2018, the pair welcomed their second child, a son.
Jason & Molly Mesnick
Their love story may not be conventional, but it’s epic: Molly was actually the runner-up to the 14th season of The Bachelor, as Jason gave his final rose (and the ring) to Melissa Rycroft. Only later did he realize he was actually in love with Molly, whom he married on Feb. 27, 2010. They had their first child together, daughter Riley Anne, in March 2013.
Deanna & Stephen Stagliano
They didn’t meet on The Bachelor, or her season of The Bachelorette, but DeAnna and Stephen’s relationship still has roots on the show: Stephen’s brother, Michael, competed on the fifth season of The Bachelorette. The Staglianos tied the knot in 2011, and now have two children: Addison Marie, born in February 2014, and Austin Michael, born in March 2016.
Desirée Hartsock & Chris Siegfried
In August 2016, the Bachelorette alum revealed that she and her husband, Chris, were expecting a baby boy, and Asher Wrigley arrived that Oct. 19. “Our hearts are so full of love for our little man already and we can’t thank you all enough for the extra love you’ve shared during this special time,” she captioned a photo announcing the news. The pair tied the knot in 2015 in Palos Verdes, California, after meeting on season 9 of The Bachelorette. “The best part about this new chapter in life is going through it all with the quirkiest, most thoughtful, and lovable man I know,” Siegfried captioned another family photo. “We can’t wait to be parents to the precious lil soul growing inside me.”
Ashley & J.P. Rosenbaum
The former Bachelorette and her final rose recipient welcomed son Fordham Rhys on Sept. 30, 2014, and didn’t wait too long to expand their family further. Ashley gave birth to their second child, daughter Essex Reese, just more than two years later, on Nov. 4, 2016. “Already has me wrapped around her little finger,” J.P. wrote on Twitter of his little girl. “I’m in trouble!
Ashley Salter & Austin Brannen

Trista & Ryan Sutter
“The way we got together is so not normal,” Trista told PEOPLE in 2015. “But we do live a normal life. Yes, we met in a fantastical way, but it’s really what we did after the show that mattered.” She and her husband, whom she met on her season of The Bachelorette, are the proud parents of Max, 10, and Blakesley, 9.
