She just gave birth!

She's a first-time mother!

As reported by People Magazine, the 36-year old and long-time partner Justin Pasutto welcomed their first child into the world on Friday morning.

His name is Leo. He was born at 6:02 a.m. And he weighed six pounds and 12 ounces at the time.

In announcing her pregnancy back in March, Harris shared a photo of herself, her baby bump, her dog and her man, writing as a captio:

"I can't remember a time where my heart has been SO full. A total dream come true!! We are over the moon, stoked, blessed, exstatic!!!!!

"Little babe, we CANNOT wait to meet you!!!!!! @slipperygoose @nachocilantro #16weeks (ps details on the blog if you haven't heard the news yet... Love you ALL for your love and support!!!)."

Added Pasutto at the time:

"Words can’t express how lucky and blessed we feel to introduce a new life into ours and that our wish has finally come true."

He then joked of the dog, which has his own Instagram account:

"@nachocilantro on the other hand, isn’t quite sure what that means for him but he’s excited too."


Harris and Pasutto have been an item for four years.

Jillian finished in third place on Jason Mesnick's season of The Bachelor, going on to anchor her very own season of The Bachelorette.

She selected contestant Ed Swiderski as the winner that year and the two became engaged by the series’ end in 2009.

However, the pair pulled the plug on their romance in July 2010 after Us Weekly broke news of Swiderski’s infidelity.

Oh well.

We felt badly for Jillian at the time, but things have clearly worked out just fine for her.

Better than fine: she's in love and she's a mother!

We send the new family our very best wishes!
