DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano of The Bachelor and Bachelorette fame are parents for the first time! The couple welcomed a little girl last week.

Stagliano tweeted the joyous announcement on Saturday.

“Our little angel is here! She was born on Feb. 6th," the 30-year-old posted. “Daddy now has two loves in his life! Thank you all for the love and support.”

Stagliano announced the baby’s gender via Twitter, “We couldn’t wait…so we scheduled another ultra sound this afternoon… and we saw a… GIRL!!!! #BabyStag.”

The couple met because of The Bachelorette.

She starred on the popular ABC reality show, and Steve's twin brother, Michael, was a contestant on Jillian Harris' season (on which Stephen had a cameo).

Michael also went on to win Bachelor Pad.

Former Bachelor and Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano, the twin brother of Bachelor Pad winner Michael Stagliano, are married!

The couple wed Saturday in her home state of Georgia.

DeAnna Pappas, 29, walked down the aisle in a strapless Disney Bridal wedding gown with a birdcage veil and cowboy boots. "They were giddy with excitement," an observer at the unforgettable affair said. "She looked incredibly happy."

Michael Stagliano and Holly Durst, his then-fiance and also a contestant on The Bachelor, originally set the couple up. Stephen proposed in August 2010.

Durst and Michael Stagliano went on to win Bachelor Pad this summer, but he was caught off guard by her engagement to cast member Blake Julian.

Pappas, who was rejected by Brad Womack the first time he starred on The Bachelor, became The Bachelorette and got engaged to Jesse Csincsak.

Brad Womack rejected Jenni Croft and DeAnna Pappas on the Bachelor a few seasons ago. This time around, we have a hunch he ends up engaged at the end.

Engaged to ... well, read The Bachelor spoilers here if you're curious.

In any case, Jenni and DeAnna will return to confront Brad when his second stint as the show's leading man commences January 3. Can you say awkward?

  • Jenni Croft, Brad Womack
  • DeAnna Pappas, Brad Womack

So ... what have you girls been up to?

A previously released promo already revealed that Womack will be greeted with a slap by one of the aspiring women this season, an event that sets the tone.

Producers say many of the women will "question his intentions" and grill Brad Womack with "tough questions" despite his "radical personal transformation."

We imagine Jenni and DeAnna have a couple of things to read off the cue cards say to the man who broke their hearts. We can see some thrown drinks, too.

After what was an incredible 13th season and an emotional, two-hour season finale chock full of twists, turns and heartbreak, Jason Mesnick got down on one knee and proposed to Melissa Rycroft on The Bachelor Monday night.

It was an outcome many expected ever since a promo appeared to show Melissa's pinky ring. But it wasn't just ABC's sloppy editing job that gave the ending away - the chemistry between Melissa and Jason was palpable from the start.

This is not to suggest Melissa Rycroft had it easy tonight. She was grilled hard by Jason's parents and brothers and even more importantly, win over little Ty.

Runner-up Molly Malaney put up a heck of a fight, only to fall just short. She may be second guessing the re-use of her high school prom dress as we speak.

As for DeAnna Pappas' much-hyped return? Well, that was completely useless, staged and comical, but it at least ate up a good 10 minutes of air time.

In the end, absolutely no one could quite measure up to Melissa Rycroft's rare blend of beauty, love and charm. She and Jason Mesnick are engaged and happy ...

... or ARE they?

You may have read The Bachelor spoilers suggesting Melissa and Jason are headed for a shocking early breakup - with Molly taking her place by his side.

Is this for real? Would you be happy if so? And did Jason make the right choice? We'll find out on the "After the Final Rose" special airing ... right now!

Sound off on Melissa Rycroft and The Bachelor finale below!

He's fallen in love with two beautiful girls. Unfortunately, this isn't Big Love. There can be only one rose and one engagement ring distributed tonight in New Zealand.

The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick finally makes his choice on the season finale, and he's got quite the decision: Does he go with Molly Malaney or Melissa Rycroft?

Making the decision even tougher? A "surprise" visit by DeAnna Pappas ...

A couple of points before we throw it over to you for comments:

  • This is the cheesiest preview ever, even by Bachelor standards. Jason did a good job inserting "Molly" and "Melissa" into the generic Bachelor finale script.
  • Are we really supposed to believe Jason had no idea DeAnna was in New Zealand? Who takes a 67-hour flight to give someone they dumped a little advice?

What do you think is DeAnna's role in tonight's finale? Are The Bachelor spoilers going around legit? Who do you want to win? Vote and leave comments below!

Jason Mesnick should be with ...

Despite endearing herself to millions of viewers throughout the United States and her native Canada, lovable, laid-back Jillian Harris was eliminated last night.

After last night's episode, The Bachelor field stands at two.

Or is it three?

Could Jason Mesnick possibly end up with DeAnna Pappas after all this time?

She shattered his heart on The Bachelorette. Might he similarly crush the hopes and dreams of both Molly Malaney and Melissa Rycroft in The Bachelor season finale?

The previews airing after Monday's episode of The Bachelor and the previous week's show made quite clear that DeAnna is returning - maybe to beg for another shot?

Some fans believe it's just crafty editing and this outcome is unlikely, but we know DeAnna will play a role in the March 2 season-ender. The only question is what.

So who do you think will win The Bachelor? Will it be Melissa Rycroft, Molly Malaney, or DeAnna Pappas in the biggest reality TV shocker in history?

The Hollywood Gossip's recap of The Bachelor is a rundown of our favorite (and least favorite) moments, with points awarded or deducted as we see fit.

Last night, the three women accompanied Jason Mesnick to New Zealand - where he made a surprise choice in which one he sent home. Let's get to it ...

Jason Mesnick, DeAnna Pappas Photo

Plus 10 for New Zealand. Jealous.

Jason took Jillian to the edge of a cliff and said: "It was just the two of us. There was no one else around for miles and miles..." Minus 5 for ABC's boom mic guy getting in the way of Jason completing that thought.

This week's special feature: Plus 1 for every boring euphemism for sex the writers can come up with. So far: Spend the night together. Connect physically. Handle all this fire. See the passion. Time alone. This week's total: Plus 5!

Sweet mother of ... Jason actually pulled the Titanic card and proceeded to spread his arms in an I'm-the-king-of-the-world sort of way. Minus Infinity.

Jason on the suite card: It was "from Chris to give to me to give to her..." Minus 5. Not as romantic to acknowledge the pimp-like role Chris Harrison plays in all this. But Plus 12 for the pimp-like role Chris Harrison plays in all this.

Despite giving off the impression that she's forcing it and isn't quite sure why she's there, Molly Malaney stuns Jillian for the second rose and earns a place in the finals! Could it be that less enthusiasm and insanity is more? Plus 11.

Melissa Rycroft just wants her parents to see how happy Jason makes her? Their dates are being FILMED! Minus 3, because that makes no sense, and Minus 6 more for the obvious overplaying of the parental absence for two weeks now.

The picture frames of the girls Jason gazes upon contain the same promotional stock pics we use on this site! You can't get any other candid photos, ABC? Minus 4.

Plus 5 for Melissa's video, because it is by far the most sincere and least awkward. On a related note, Jillian refers to Jason as "babe" in hers, while Molly goes with "J" and Melissa the ever-annoying "you." Minus 1 for Jillian and Melissa.

"Dude, when you're 90, you want to be with your best friend." - Jillian Harris. We know you're all laid back and cool and Canadian, Jill, but never start a sentence with "dude" and expect to be taken seriously. Minus 8.

Minus 7 for Jillian for making up that dream about Ty after getting eliminated. Just move on, girl. Sorry, that was mean. Bad us. Minus 5 for our staff.

Finally, Plus 30 for the melodramatic setup to the "shocking" finale and the "intimate" After the Final Rose special to follow. What happened is so emotional ... that we've decided to keep it as intimate as possible. What does that even mean?

Oh, and Plus 16 for that great deleted scene with Jason and Molly in the tub, with their microphones malfunctioning. We imagine 98 percent of the show is like this.

TOTAL: -Infinity, +47! A quick list of who's in and out on The Bachelor...

Roses received at ceremony: Molly, Melissa.

Booted By Jason Mesnick: Jillian.

With her heavily-hyped reunion with The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick drawing near on the season finale, DeAnna Pappas has revealed some additional details about why she rejected Mesnick in favor of Jesse Csincsak - then later dumped Csincsak.

"I believe that we all make mistakes in our lives and we learn from them ... it came down to two totally different people. Jason, who has it all together has everything a woman would want. And then there's Jesse, who kind of was a wild card," she told Extra.

"For me, I felt like the wild card was going to work out. Someone to keep me on my toes. Eventually, it wasn't what I was attracted to anymore," she added.

Both Jason Mesnick and Jesse Csincsak attempted to propose marriage to DeAnna Pappas during July's broadcast of The Bachelorette's fourth-season finale.

DeAnna Pappas rejected Mesnick, on bended knee, before he could follow through with his marriage proposal offer and presented Csincsak with her final rose.

Things initially seemed to go well for the engaged couple, but after months of wavering over a wedding location, Pappas announced she had broken up with Csincsak.

That split took place in November.

As for her reunion in New Zealand with Mesnick on The Bachelor, Pappas said it was a positive experience for her - and hopefully for The Bachelor viewers as well.

"I believe that it's going to resolve some issues for myself and possibly some viewers," she said.

When speaking of DeAnna Pappas' surprise visit, which will air in two weeks, Mesnick admitted to being caught off guard by the appearance of his ex-flame.

"Of course it threw me off. I fell in love with her and I went through my healing process. She's the last person I expected to see, especially in New Zealand," he said.

Tonight on The Bachelor, Jason Mesnick takes the final three bachelorettes to New Zealand for overnight dates - where the fantasy suite may or may not be in play.

Later, the L-word is dropped by one of the three girls, and one is sent home at the end. Will it be Melissa Rycroft, Jillian Harris or Molly Malaney hitting the road?

Check out the sneak preview below ...

Pretty standard promo - except for the part about the "shocking" season finale, which is already being hyped even before tonight's elimination has been announced.

We're referring to the millisecond-long shot about two-thirds of the way in, which clearly shows Jason kissing a woman that really, really looks like DeAnna Pappas.

We know she's coming back to the show in some capacity, but is she really making a play for The Bachelor's heart? We're fairly certain it's her. See screen cap below:

Jason Mesnick Kissing DeAnna Pappas

Scandalous, to say the least - either if it actually happens, or if ABC used old footage from last season's The Bachelorette as the ultimate fake-out. Wouldn't surprise us.

What do you think? Would Jason actually choose DeAnna Pappas if given the choice over his remaining options this season, or is this all just reality TV smoke and mirrors?

We'll find out soon enough. For now, follow the jump for a two-minute clip from tonight's episode, in which Molly Malaney and Jason go bungee jumping ...

DeAnna Pappas [on Trista Rehn]: She’s like the poster child for The Bachelorette. She gave me some pretty good advice: Follow my heart and be true to myself. I can only hope to have a successful relationship like she has.

I’m thankful that he didn’t propose to me. Everything happens for a reason and I’m where I am today because of all of that and I’m very happy for that.
