As a former Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas Stagliano knows a thing or two about romance.

But she and husband Stephen Stagliano have found an even greater love in their nearly 5-month-old baby girl.

The reality star gave birth to daughter Addison Marie in February, and she’s brought her parents even closer ever since.

“I didn’t know that you could love like this. Obviously I love DeAnna to pieces and we have a wonderful marriage, but the love that a parent has, it’s just different,” Stagliano, 30, told PEOPLE.

“You can’t really describe it,” Pappas Stagliano, 32, added. “Words don’t credit what you feel. No one could prepare you for this. Your heart is just overflowing.”

We Tried It: BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light

We Tried It: BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light

Who tried it: Rennie Dyball, senior editor

Why she did it: I’ve heard many raves about this travel crib, so with a beach trip on the itinerary, I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

Pros: From opening the box to sitting my daughter down inside this newest version of BabyBjörn’s crib/play yard took all of two minutes. Seriously.

To borrow an Apple buzzword, the setup was completely “intuitive,” and the mini crib sheets I had in the closet from her daycare days fit the mattress perfectly. At 13 lbs., the Travel Crib Light lives up to its name, and it folds up almost impossibly small into its own carrying case. What more could you want for travel?
