Jason and Molly Mesnick, who met on "The Bachelor" in 2009 and wed in a televised special in 2010, welcomed a daughter, Riley Anne, on Thursday, People magazine reports.

Jason Mesnick proposed to DeAnna Pappas on "The Bachelorette" in 2008, but was rejected by her in favor of Jesse Csincsak. Then Mesnick himself broke a heart when he starred as "The Bachelor." In that show's finale, he proposed to Melissa Rycroft, only to eventually change his mind and propose instead to Molly Malaney. They wed on "The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding," which aired in 2010.

Baby Riley was born in Seattle and weighed 6 lbs. 8 ox., People reports.

Jason Mesnick also has a son, Ty, from a previous marriage.

“Ty has been asking for a sibling for so long,” People quotes Mesnick as saying. “He was here earlier holding her and kissing her and it was really, really cute. We’re so happy.”

The only other "Bachelor/Bachelorette" winning couple to have children are Ryan and Trista Sutter, who wed in 2003 after she chose him on "The Bachelorette." They have a son, Maxwell, and a daughter, Blakesley.
