Everything is coming up roses for Renee Oteri Maynard: she’s a mom again!
The former Bachelor contestant welcomed her second child at 6:16 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 15, she confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
Already mom to 9-year-old Ben, son Jax Bracy is Oteri’s first child with husband Bracy Maynard.
“We are all doing so great! Jax has the cutest little 10 fingers, 10 toes — and the sweetest little nose,” the new mom tells PEOPLE of her baby boy, who weighed 7 lb., 3 oz. and measured 21 inches long.
“He’s such a blessing!! We are so in love. Ben is, without question, the proudest big brother ever.”
Although “labor was tough this go,” Oteri says it was “worth every second. Bracy was amazing during labor — couldn’t have done it without his jokes, his love and incredible support.”
