Congratulations are in order for former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and her fiancé Kevin Manno! The bride-to-be gave birth to a baby girl earlier this week — and she's as cute as can be.
The couple's daughter, Molly Sullivan Manno, was born at 8:22 a.m. on Wednesday, July 6. She weighed in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces, and measured 22 inches, according to an Instagram posted by Fedotowsky.
"You are absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way," the 31-year-old new mom captioned the adorable black-and-white photo, which shows her newborn girl lying on Fedotowsky's chest. "@KevinManno & I love you more than we will ever be able to put in words. Thank you for making me a mommy."
"This little angel is not even a day old and is already our entire world," Fedotowsky told Us Weekly in a statement. "Molly Sullivan is named after two very important women in our lives. My late grandmother, Molly Fedotowsky, and Kevin's late grandmother, Eva Sullivan, will both live on in our little girl."
The former reality television star has been engaged to her TV host beau since September of last year, when he presented Fedotowsky with a standout engagement ring featuring an emerald-cut center stone and a pavé diamond halo. The couple then revealed in January that they were expecting their first little one, saying, "You see, last year, when we started planning our wedding, we couldn't find any good ring-bearers or flower girls, so we decided to make our own. Ha!"
Just a few weeks ago Fedotowsky and Manno revealed that they actually had to put off their "I dos" and cancel their Mexico destination wedding because of the Zika virus.
"We were planning on Mexico, that was our dream," the bride-to-be shared with Us Weekly. "But now this Zika thing is really messing things up!" Yes, darn that Zika for causing a pandemic, severe brain malformations, and canceling weddings!
"Obviously I can't go because I'm pregnant," Fedotowsky explained at the time. "But now there are all these reports and it's not fair to all my guests." Well we can definitely agree that the Zika virus would be, like, the worst wedding favor, ever. "So anyway, now we're starting from square one!" said Fedotowsky. "We had a venue and it was all ready to go. It's such a bummer!"
Honestly, we're really disappointed at having to wait to see Fedotowsky walk down the aisle. But, hey, at least we know she and Manno will eventually get to that altar. And we can totally see Molly serving as the sweetest flower girl!

Yesterday was really special to us. Last Fourth of July, @kevinmanno and I decided we wanted to have a baby and grow our little family. Here we are one year later, just days away from meeting our daughter. I feel so lucky. More family photos on www.AliLuvs.com #AliLuvs #9monthspregnant #DueIn9days #babymanno
