The former Bachelorette and her husband, Stephen Stagliano, welcomed their daughter on Thursday, Feb. 6, Pappas Stagliano confirms to PEOPLE.

“Our little angel is here! Daddy now has two loves in his life! Thank you all for the love and support,” the new father, 30, Tweeted Saturday to announce the arrival.

The couple, who wed in 2011, announced the pregnancy in August and Pappas Stagliano, 32, admitted giving birth to their first child would be her husband’s only — and greatest — gift.

“The baby is due Feb. 8 and Stephen’s birthday is Feb. 4. I told him all he’s getting for his birthday this year is a baby,” she joked to PEOPLE.

Pappas Stagliano celebrated their pending arrival with a pink-themed baby shower in January and admitted she was resisting the urge to stock her daughter’s drawers.

“I’ve desperately tried to refrain from buying tons of baby clothes because most moms have told me they barely used half of what they had. I’m a simple lady — less is more,” she told PEOPLE.

Congrats to them! Can’t wait to hear the name and see pictures!

Born on her due date. That’s cool. I was in love with my son’s due date and month that he was estimated to be born. His due date was December 8th and I was told he would most likely be a few weeks late and closer to Christmas which I liked. He was born 3 weeks early though and came on November 15th. I have always disliked November, until now.

Congratulations to the happy couple! So happy she was born a couple of days after his b’day, rather than on it, but it’s a wonderful gift! Looking forward to hearing her name, and hopefully, see a picture.

She actually did not deliver on her due date; she was due 2-08 but delivered 2-06. Of course, it’s still “cool”. Any day a baby is born is a blessed day!

Wish her mom could be around to share the joy but she is looking dow from heaven a happy granny

Huh? on

NAME!??!??!! I hate that. How do you make a baby announcement and not give a name!?!? You had 9 months to figure that out

okaayyy on

No, Pam (below) the baby was NOT born on her due date – the due date was the 8th, the article says she was born on the 6th.

I bet her middle name will be after DeAnna’s mom, who passed away…

Smithy on

I heard they named the baby ‘Fifteen Minutes’…..they’re going to call her Fifi.

So, I was born on my Dad’s birthday and then two years later my little brother was born on the same day! So, I share my birthday with my dad and my brother! Coolest thing ever! Then I have two girls….both girls had the same due date, May 24th. My oldest was born May 15th, 2009 and my youngest was born May 18th, 2013! I was hoping they would be born on the same day! We missed by three days! 🙂 Congrats to the new family!

Yeah, SO on

Yeah, so, I was born on my birthday too.

Big Fan on

The baby was not born on the due date of the 8th, born the 6th. Most babies aren’t born on the due dates. My daughter WAS indeed born on her exact due date which coincidentally was Father’s Day. The hospital made a big deal of it too…it was awesome. My other daughter came a week early which I knew would happen.

Congrats and enjoy your new little blessing!

Smithy…best comment ever!

The first picture of the baby wearing the little blue hat is so cute. Looks like a little smile there.

That name is so used and way boring, they could have picked something better, I personally wouldn’t want to give my child such a popular used name ever! What ever happened to originality? Oh right everybody has to be like everybody else! Boringgggg!!

Taylor on

@Dulce Mae When celebs give kids a normal name, they’re called “boring,” but when they go all “Rainbow” and “North,” people are all “poor kid!” I think it’s a perfectly lovely name. I personally don’t know any Addisons.

Texgirl on

Aww, I have an Addison as well. Love the name, obviously!

arjtra6 on

I have an Addyson and I obviously think its a beautiful name. Not over used at all!

dsfg on

” . . . its a beautiful name. Not over used at all!”

Actually, it ranked 24 for top baby girls names in 2013.

Do NOT like the name Addison. At my kid’s school, there are 3 boys named Addison and 1 girl. To me, it sounds like a made-up name. Don’t like names that you can’t tell if the kid is a boy or girl. It’s a trendy name that will be trendy maybe 4 years, and then you’ll never hear it again, and you’ll be stuck with it as an adult.

Anonymous- Actually, Addison may be “trendy” now, but it has been around for ages (it started off as a surname). And while trendy names DO tend to fade from common use after a few decades or so, some end up becoming popular again several years down the road (look at Sophia, for example. When we were kids, it was thought of as mostly a “grandma” name. Now it’s so popular that it was the number one girls’ name of 2013!). Maybe Addison will be one of them!

Anyway, I love the name. Wonder if they’ll call her Addie?

Addie on

Many studies have shown that children given strong Anglo-Saxon names are the most successful in life. So think real hard before you name your child. Do you want your child to be a success or not.

Jessy on

Addisson? For real? OMG.

Ris on

Reminds of the disease, Addison’s. Also, I have an Italian last name and certain names I like won’t go with it…like finn, sawyer, carter. I don’t think madison goes with the Italian last name.

Kestrel on

Trendy and dull.

What a beautiful name for a beautiful baby! It’s nice that they honored Deanna’s mother. Congratulations to the family!!

The name is too trendy, but congrats to them!
