It's a boy for Bachelorette alum Jillian Harris and her boyfriend, Justin Pasutto. Jillian announced the news exclusively to People magazine, revealing she welcomed a son on Friday, August 5 at 6:02 a.m. He weighs 6 lbs, 12 oz.

Jillian and Justin have been calling their baby a little "bean," but they revealed on Sunday, August 7, that they named their little guy Leo.

"World, meet little Leo... (Queue heart explosion), Jillian wrote on Instagram with the above photo. "The last 48 hours have been the best of our lives. Thank you @slipperygoose for giving me the greatest gift of all."

Little Leo is a serious cutie—look at his sweet blonde hair and tiny nose. And I love the name—very on trend for 2016.

Here's a sweet photo dad shared on Instagram, writing "Hi my name is Leo. 05.08.16 #thankyoujill #youreoneamazingwoman" The hashtags kill me.

Jillian has been quite open about her pregnancy, sharing many details on her blog—from the fact that she hasn't had many pregnancy cravings to how everything (boobs, butt and belly) are getting bigger. And now she's starting to open up mom life, specifically the postpartum part. In the family photo she shared on Instagram (at the top), she wrote "ps missing hospital panties already." We feel ya, Jillian! And recommend you get some padsicles ASAP.

The Love It or List Host announced she was pregnant back in March, writing "Justin and I couldn’t be MORE STOKED to grow our little family!!" And she posted the above photo—I wonder how her dog Nacho is reacting to his new sibling?

When Jillian first revealed that she was pregnant, she wrote, "Being pregnant has been the WEIRDEST thing I have ever experienced. Maybe I will call it beautiful once the baby is here but for now, it’s just WEIRD. I am literally growing a tiny person.”


I'm sure she is calling the whole experience beautiful now that the tiny person is officially here. Congrats Jillian and Justin!
