Vancouver, Ottawa, Canada (4E) – “The Bachelorette” alum Jillian Harris welcomed her first baby with her longtime partner Justin Pasutto last Friday.

Harris took to Instagram to post a photo of their baby. She wrote alongside the snap, “World, meet little Leo… (Queue heard explosion) The last 48 hours have been the best of our lives. Thank you @slipperygoose for giving me the greatest gift of all.” According to reports, the baby boy was born at 6:02 A.M. and weighs 6 lbs., and 12 oz.

In the snap posted, Leo was seen wrapped in a white printed blanket while he was asleep. Pasutto also took to Twitter to post a photo of his son and in the snap, the baby was in a car seat and it seems that it was taken when they got out of the hospital and were on their way home.

Pasutto and Harris have announced that they were expecting last March. The announcement was made on Instagram via a photo showing Harris holding her shirt up and pointing to her tummy. In the photo, their dog Nacho and Pasutto were also seen as the couple smiled for the camera.

Another photo was uploaded showing Harris’ growing belly and she said during that time that words cannot express how lucky and blessed they feel to introduce a new life in to theirs. “The Bachelorette” alum pretty much documented her pregnancy via Instagram . They have also expressed that marriage is not a priority this time especially after they started trying to conceive a baby, which has reportedly been their wish for a long time now.

Harris, 36, and Pasutto , 28, have been together for four years now. Last July, family and friends gathered for the baby shower for Harris in Vancouver, Canada.
