First Bachelor baby born to Trista and Ryan Sutter

The first Bachelor baby has been born, and it’s a boy.

Maxwell Alston Sutter was born to Bachelorette couple Trista and Ryan Sutter on Thursday, Us Weekly reports. Trista told the magazine, “He’s perfect and beautiful, and everyone’s doing great.”

Earlier, Trista told the magazine, “It took us a long time to get pregnant so it makes it that much sweeter. It’s my dream to be a mom.” Trista announced she was pregnant “after two years of trying” in February; the two were married in late 2003, and are one of the few couples who met on the show to remain together.
