It’s a girl for Erica Rose!
The Bachelor and Bachelor Pad alum welcomed her first child, Holland Rose Madeleine Gentry, on Monday, Sept. 19. Delivered via cesarean section due to a breech presentation, Holland weighed in at 6 lbs., 13 oz., Rose confirmed to E! News.
Rose, 33, who is engaged to Holland’s father Galen Gentry, named their daughter in memory of her late aunt, Holly, who died of cancer.
A source confirmed to PEOPLE in February that Rose, who competed on season 9 of The Bachelor and went on to star in Bachelor Pad seasons 2 and 3, was expecting her first child.
“She is super excited about the baby,” a source told PEOPLE of Rose, who currently works as director of business development at her fiancé’s law offices. “She’s so happy to have found a good guy to share this journey with her.”
Since her pregnancy announcement, Rose has been sharing lots of photos of her growing bump on Instagram, as well as peeks into some special baby-related events.
“High School besties!” Rose captioned a sweet shot of herself and her pals posing in a group shot at her pink-powered June baby shower.
Welcome to the joys of motherhood, Erica Rose.
Erica rose to fame after competing for Prince Lorenzo Borghese‘s heart during The Bachelor‘s ninth season in 2006. She later appeared on two seasons of Bachelor Pad.
She would ultimately find her prince charming at work as Erica is the director of business development for Gentry Law Group, where Galen is an attorney.
“They fell in love at first sight! She was really ready to have a baby and they started trying,” her rep previously told E! News. “Erica’s family is super excited. When Erica’s father heard the news, he said he wanted to throw a big Texas wedding! Though no plans are confirmed yet. They are really looking forward to the new addition to the family.”
Congratulations to the couple on their special arrival.
