Oh, baby: Ali Fedotowsky is a mom!

The former Bachelorette, 31, and fiancé Kevin Manno welcomed their first child, a baby girl, on Wednesday, July 6 at 8:22 a.m., PEOPLE confirms.

Daughter Molly Sullivan Manno was born weighing 7 lbs., 6 oz., and measuring 22 inches long.

“You are absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way,” the new mom captioned a photo of her newborn. “@KevinManno & I love you more than we will ever be able to put in words. Thank you for making me a mommy. (Named after our late grandmothers Molly Fedotowsky and Eva Sullivan.)”

A rep for the blogger confirmed her pregnancy to PEOPLE in January, while the couple announced they were having a girl on Fedotowsky’s blog in March.

“We are thrilled, excited, nervous and in awe that we are going to be parents!” Fedotowsky told PEOPLE following her pregnancy news. “We feel incredibly fortunate to be lucky enough to welcome a little one into this world.”

Though the couple were over the moon about welcoming their daughter into their growing family, the journey unfortunately wasn’t without any physical drawbacks.

“I want to be like, ‘I’m great! Everything is fine!’ But I’m not,” she told PEOPLE in June, noting she was on modified bed rest for uterine irritability after having joked in May that it meant she has a “very pissed off uterus.”

Fortunately, the Valentine in the Morning co-host has been extremely supportive during Fedotowsky’s time of need.

“He has been amazing,” she said of Manno, whom she became engaged to in September. “Anything, he will be like, ‘Let me give you a massage. Let me help, I want to make you feel better.’ ”

The new mom was the lucky guest of honor at a Malibu, California, baby shower in April, which was attended by the likes of Kaley Cuoco, as well as fellow mom Haylie Duff and mom-to-be Lacey Chabert.

“My baby shower weekend was truly magical. More than I could have ever hoped for,” Fedotowsky wrote on her blog.

And although Fedotowsky — who worked with a designer to create a stunning nursery for her baby on the way — and Manno had no preference on the sex of their first child, the new mom couldn’t help reflecting on her own expectations.

“I totally pictured myself as a mother to all boys,” Fedotowsky admitted in the March blog post where she revealed she was having a girl, adding that her daughter “will most certainly be the queen of the house” and “will be so loved by so many the very day she comes into this world.

“We are so thankful to say that so far, our little girl has passed every test and is looking very healthy,” she continued. “But no matter what happens, we will love everything about her.”

I love the name they picked. The first and middle names go well together and sound good with the last name. And it’s cute. Glad their baby is healthy!

Maria on

Congrats. Cute name.

I hope the kid never types her mom’s name in youtube search. Footage can still be seen of Ali doing the nasty with Roberto on the Bachelorette finale. There are some things you shouldn’t do on camera. Ha!

Beautiful picture and adorable name. I am sure Kaley will be spoiling this little girl. Enjoy they grow too fast.

Congratulations to Ali and Kevin! I just can’t put my finger on it but I just don’t care for Ali at all. Not sure why but just don’t. Ever since seeing her on the Bachelorette and seeing how she treated the other girls as well as Jake Pavelka I just don’t like her.

Guest on

Love the name! Congrats to them!

poppy – I’m pretty sure 0 people care about Jake Pavelka. He was a total ass. Ali seems like a perfectly nice person.

I thought she was with the one she picked on bachelorette!

Volly on

Sad that she and Roberto are split, I was rooting for them.

Guest, regarding the “Kevin and I” via “your Daddy and I”, I think it’s because she’s actually linking to his twitter handle. If you notice, it says @KevinManno which is hyperlinking to his account. Hope that makes sense and explains why she did it that way.🙂

I don’t usually love alliteration baby names e.g. MM but Molly Manno has a nice ring to it! I also think Eva Molly Manno does too.

**OOPS, versus not via!

Of all the beautiful names they pick Molly Manno. Poor kid.
