Jason Mesnick and wife Molly malaney welcomed a baby girl!

Former Bachelor Jason Mesnick is now a father of two! Jason announced on his Twitter page yesterday, “We welcomed the most beautiful healthy baby girl to our family today, Riley Anne Mesnick,” he wrote. “Thank you for your well wishes!”

Mesnick, 36, and Molly Malaney, 28, met on season 13 of the ABC reality show in 2009 and tied the knot the following year; Malaney, who has since taken her husband’s surname, announced her pregnancy in October 2012. The Seattle-area dad also has an 8-year-old son, Ty, from a previous marriage.

Weeks before Riley’s birth, Mesnick told Us Weekly his son was looking forward to having a younger sibling. “He’s been an only child all of his life, so he’s really excited to be a big brother and he totally understands what’s going on,” the account executive said. “And it’s nice that he’s older, so maybe he will be able to help out a little bit.”

Other aspects of being a big brother are less exciting. “I think the one thing that Ty’s not looking forward to is ever changing a diaper,” Mesnick joked. “But he’s been asking for a sibling literally since he could talk.”

Congrats to the couple!

Sean Lowe (a “born again virgin”) and his new fiance Catherine are waiting until marriage to have sex.

I knew it! No wonder there’s such a huge rush to get married! They’re waiting to have sex! I was raised Baptist, and so I definitely understand the waiting for marriage thing, but I do think it can be tricky. There IS such a thing as people being sexually incompatible. I think sleeping around is wrong – and hurts people, ultimately, but waiting for marriage is hard too. It’s a very fine line, I guess.

Millions watched their romantic proposal in Thailand – and now The Bachelor’s newly engaged Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici can finally proclaim their love to the world.

“I’m just so excited that the secret is out,” Lowe tells PEOPLE.

Adds Giudici: “Now, we can be a normal couple and hold hands in public!”

Hold hands they will, but Lowe and Giudici have vowed to save being intimate until after the wedding.

“From my perspective, I’ve lived life kind of selfishly for a long time,” says Lowe, a conservative Christian and born-again virgin. “Now, I’m going to try to live it the way I know to be right.”

As for his bride-to-be’s feelings on the topic? “I honor him,” she says.

The pair, who announced they will tie the knot on a televised special for ABC, most likely don’t have too long of a wait, though.

“I’m a guy. I’d go to the courthouse tomorrow if she’d let me,” says Lowe. “We just fit so well together. We both know it’s right.”

So yeah, this wedding thing is probably going to happen very, very quickly. :)

Desiree Hartsock announced as the next Bachelorette!

Desiree Hartsock, who was a contestant on this season of ‘The Bachelor’ has been announced as the ‘Bachelorette’ for the upcoming ninth season of the ABC summer hit!

“I just can’t even believe I’m here,” Desiree said on the “Bachelor” Season 17 “After The Rose” special on Monday night. “I just feel so thankful.” Tears filled new “Bachelorette” Desiree’s eyes as she talked about her upcoming experience. “I’m very hopeful in all of this and I do hope to meet the man of my dreams,” she told host Chris Harrison.

The 26-year-old Colorado resident was a fan favorite. She made it to the final four, but was ultimately rejected by Sean Lowe, Season 17′s “Bachelor,” who was the third-place finalist on Season 8 of “The Bachelorette,” which featured Emily Maynard.

Desiree was spotted shooting in Santa Monica last week, E! News reported. “Des was smiling and was happy. She definitely seemed like she was enjoying herself,” an eyewitness told the website.

What do you guys think about Desiree as the Bachelorette? Part of me really hoped they would pick Sarah. Do you think they didn’t because of her arm? I know everyone loved Desiree, but I feel like everyone loved Sarah too!

What do you think of ABC’s pick?

Bachelor Recap: Sean Lowe proposes to Catherine Giudici!

I guess I can’t give you an appropriate recap because I actually didn’t even see the full episode. I have to fast-forward 1:45 ahead – and watch just the proposal. I can’t stand any of the stuff leading up to it. I really didn’t like Chris Harrison’s live-audience-bit either. I don’t care what the audience thinks – let’s just get to it!

One thing that annoyed me – was how much ABC was playing up this STUPID LETTER – and come to find out, it was just from Catherine! Always inflating the drama – I’m OVER it. (Until next season, of course.)

In the end Sean picked Catherine over Lindsay. Honestly, I didn’t like his final two – AT ALL…but after seeing Sean and Catherine together at the end, I might have cracked a smile. Okay fine, they are pretty cute together.

When the couple sat with Chris at the ‘After the Rose Ceremony,’ they announced that they were wasting NO TIME in getting married (is this because Sean has vowed to remain a virgin until he gets married?).

After Monday’s emotional Bachelor finale, Sean Lowe and his new fiancée, Catherine Giudici, appeared on ABC’s After the Final Rose special for the first time in public as a couple – and spoke to host Chris Harrison about what’s next.

“A marriage follows a proposal,” Sean said. “We don’t have a date yet, but we have decided that we think it would be cool, since our relationship started and it was developed and cultivated on a TV show – we’ll have our wedding on a TV show. And ABC will cover the wedding.”

Harrison was thrilled with the announcement that the newest Bachelor couple will have a televised wedding, just like former Bachelorette couple Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum.

“You are going to get married – we don’t have a date yet – very soon,” Harrison said.

“Soon,” Catherine said. “I don’t see why there would be any waiting period. I want to be his wife.”

And Sean agreed: “I want to spend the rest of my life with her. I can’t wait to have the wedding,” he said. “If it were up to me I’d go to the courthouse and get it done.”

“It just so happens, I am ordained,” Harrison replied. “We could do this.”

Catherine quickly asked, “Do you have a dress?” And Sean suggested that their families might be upset if they took their vows without them.

“We have never had a couple like this,” Chris said, “to come out of the gate so sincere, so serious and ready to take that next step … Congratulations, it really is beautiful.”

As they plan their wedding, Chris asked if they’ll be moving to Sean’s hometown, Dallas.

“Life is so crazy right now,” Sean said. “I’ve figured out one thing: don’t plan your life out because God is going to throw you a curve ball real fast. But she’s packed her bags and whatever happens, we’re going to do it together.”

What do you think about who Sean picked in the end??
