What did the Easter bunny bring? A baby boy!
Melissa Rycroft welcomed her second child with husband Tye Strickland on Sunday, April 20, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.
Born in the afternoon, weighing 7 lbs., 7 oz., and measuring 19.2 inches, Beckett Thomas Strickland joins big sister Ava Grace, 3.
“This little guy has been teasing us about his arrival for the last month so it is only fitting that he surprise us with his arrival on Easter Sunday,” Rycroft says in a statement.
“He’s perfect and beautiful. Ava can’t wait for us to bring him home to be able to show us all of the big sister duties she’s been practicing.”
In November, Rycroft, 31, was thrilled to find out she was expecting a baby boy, revealing the sex by biting into blue cupcakes.
“I feel very lucky that I get to experience the bond between mother and daughter and between mother and son. I hope he’s a little mama’s boy,” she told PEOPLE.
Thank you for all the sweet congratulations messages!! We are so thrilled and blessed to finally meet baby Beckett!
