'Bachelor' & 'Bachelorette' Alums Who Went On To Have Adorable Babies Post-Reality TV — PHOTOS
Sadly, the couples formed on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette do not have the best history when it comes to living happily ever after. But that doesn't mean that their love stories are over. A lot of the cast members end up finding love after the filming stops and the hot tub one-on-ones end. The Bachelor fam is actually full of some really cute babies these days. A lot of Bachelor stars have gone on to have adorable babies — just not necessarily with the person they were matched up with on the show.
When we look back at this time in history, we can probably consider ourselves now to be in the midst of a Bachelor baby boom. And in the way far ahead future, I would love it if these babies ended up taking part in some sort of Bachelor babies reunion show. But I've really jumped ahead on this one. That would be a long, long time away.
Nevertheless, there is a pretty big pool of cast members to choose from when it comes to Bachelor babies. There are so many cute ones and a lot of them look like mini versions of their reality star parents. Check out these precious photos of Bachelor Nation's next generation.
Trista & Ryan Sutter's Kids
It's no surprise that Trista and Ryan have adorable kids. They are the best couple in The Bachelor universe, so it's only fitting. Their son, Maxwell, and daughter, Blakesley, are already eight and six years old, respectively. The Sutters can definitely be considered the first family of The Bachelor franchise.
Kacie Boguskie Gaston's Son
Kacie Boguskie was a contestant on The Bachelor two different times, neither of which worked out so well. But don't feel too bad for her, Kacie got married to Rusty Gaston in May 2014, and the couple welcomed their first child on Sept. 9, 2015. Their son is named Ranger Gaston and his life has already been heavily documented on Instagram.
Ashley Hebert & J.P. Rosenbaum's Son
The Bachelorette Season 7 alums welcomed their first son, Ford, on Sept. 30, 2014. It's nice to see a happy couple from the franchise, and I have a feeling that Ford won't be an only child forever.
Melissa Rycroft-Strickland's Children
Things did not work out after Melissa won Jason Mesnick's heart on The Bachelor when he dumped her for the runner-up Molly Malaney during the finale special. After that whole mess, Melissa ended up marrying her ex Tye Strickland, and they now have two children together: Ava and Beckett. The couple announced in November 2015 that they have another baby on the way.
Jason Mesnick & Molly Malaney's Daughter
If you bend the rules a little, you can count Jason and Molly as one of the couples from the show that actually made it. Sure, he originally picked Melissa, but he reversed that decision and they ended up getting married on television and having a daughter together. Their baby girl Riley Anne was born on March 14, 2013.
DeAnna Pappas' Daughter
DeAnna Pappas looked outside The Bachelor to find love and started a family with non-reality TV man named Stephen Stagliano. The two have a daughter named Addison and a son on the way!
Andrew Firestone's Kids
Andrew Firestone is another person who did not end up with his final pick on The Bachelor, but it seems like his life worked out just fine. Andrew and his wife Ivana have three children together, Brooks, Anja, and Shane.
Jen Schefft's Daughters
Jen Schefft and Andrew Firestone did not end up together, but Jen and her husband Joe Waterman ended up as a parents to two daughters: Mae Elizabeth and Charlotte Grace. She is just another example of life working outside of The Bachelor pairings.
Jesse Csincsak & Ann Lueders Csincsak
These two did not find love as contestants on the show, but they actually met at a Bachelor reunion. Fast forward a bit and the reality TV alums have a son named Noah and a daughter named Charlotte.
Some of The Bachelor matches had the ideal fairy tale love story with children to follow. Others mixed it up a bit and ended up with someone other than the winner of their show. And a few of the show's alums stepped outside of reality TV to find love. Nevertheless, the Bachelor Baby Boom is in full swing and the world just got a whole lot cuter.
