by at . Comments

After two seasons on both CBS's Survivor and The Amazing Race and even their own FOX reality show, Rob and Amber: Against the Odds, Amber and Rob Mariano are embarking on a new reality challenge - and one that's not rigged – parenthood.

Amber Mariano, 30, gave birth to their daughter Lucia Rose back on July 4 at Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, Fla., Rob Mariano, 33, confirmed to People.

"Both mom and baby are healthy and doing great," says Rob. "Lucia is a great eater and sleeps a lot, and she tends to be a bit of a night owl like her dad."

"She is a perfect baby and we could not have asked for anything more. We are over the moon with happiness at her arrival!"

Rob and Amber Mariano plus baby Lucia makes three!

Amber Brkich competed on Survivor: The Australian Outback, which aired in 2001. Rob Mariano was first seen on Survivor: Marquesas in 2002.

Both formed a winning alliance on Survivor: All-Stars, which concluded with Rob's teary on-air proposal to Amber during the May 9, 2004 finale.

After competing on the seventh season of The Amazing Race as an engaged couple, and nearing winning it all, the two wed on April 16, 2005.

In 2007, they took on The Amazing Race again during its All-Star season.

Congratulations to the happy parents!

Hi Rob, I am so happy for your special gift. You and Amber will make great parents. You help me with our Christmas Float and we won the grand prize. You were very good with my students, so I know you will be a very good parent. I know your family is proud. Keep up the good work. Paricia Cain.
