12 'Bachelor' Babies Born In 2016 That Prove This Was The Year Of The 'Bachelor' Baby Boom — PHOTOS

The only thing better than the couples from shows like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are the Bachelor babies. This was a very cute year when it comes to this franchise's next generation. There were so many Bachelor Nation babies born in 2016. I cannot wait for the Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons in 2041.

While we wait for their reality television debuts, we will have to check out these cuties on their parents' social media accounts. 2016 was the year of the Bachelor Baby Boom, that's for sure. Some of the babies are from couples who met on the some, while others are from reality stars who moved on with other people after their time on TV. And with even more people joining the Bachelor family each year, that means that there will be more people having babies in the years to come, or at least I hope so.

Who knows what's in the future for this babies. Maybe they'll follow in their parents' footsteps and do reality TV, maybe some of them will become friends, or maybe they'll go completely against their parents' path and stay totally private.

Check out the Bachelor alums who had babies this year below. All of them would get roses if they were given out based on cuteness.

1. Sean Lowe & Catherine Giudici Lowe's Son

If there's one baby born this year who has a shot at becoming a Bachelor star in the future, it's Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's son, Samuel. I mean, he's already been on After Paradise with his parents, so he has a leg up on the other other babies.

2. Ashley Hebert & JP Rosenbaum's Daughter

Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum added a daughter to their adorable family in November. Their baby girl, Essex Reese Rosenbaum, has her eyes closed for most of mom's Instagram posts, but I don't blame her. I'm sure it's exhausting to be a member of Bachelor Nation's next generation.

3. Ali Fedotowsky & Kevin Manno's Daughter

Ali Fedotowsky gave birth to her daughter, Molly Manno, in July, and she already looks like a natural holding a rose.

4. Desiree Hartsock & Chris Siegfried's Son

We saw Desiree Hartsock's bump when she appeared on JoJo Fletcher's first Bachelorette episode to dole out advice and now the reality star has a new baby! Desiree gave birth to her son, Asher Wrigley Siegfried, in October.

5. DeAnna Pappas & Stephen Stagliano's Son

DeAnna Pappas gave birth to her son, Austin Stagliano, back in March and he is all over his mom's Instagram page this year. He even has his own hashtag in her posts: #BabyStag. He's already killing it on social media.

6. Emily Maynard & Tyler Johnson's Son

Former Bachelorette star Emily Maynard gave birth to her third child in September. The birth of her son Gibson means that Emily and her daughter, Ricki, are now outnumbered by the boys in their household, as she reminded her followers in a super sweet Instagram post.

7. Melissa Rycroft & Tye Strickland's Son

After finding love away from the Bachelor spotlight, Melissa Rycroft gave birth to her third child with Tye Strickland in May. Their son Cayson Jack and his siblings are all so cute.

8. Jillian Harris & Justin Pasutto's Son

The fifth Bachelorette, Jillian Harris, gave birth to her son, Leo, in April 2016. This baby is so ingrained in Bachelor Nation that he's been featured in posts endorsing baby products on his mom's Instagram. #TotalBachelorMove.

9. Chris & Peyton Lambton's Daughter

Ali Fedotowsky's runner-up Chris Lambton and Peyton Lambton, who was a contestant on Andy Baldwin's season, gave birth to their first child a few days before Thanksgiving. A baby this cute is definitely something to be thankful for.

10. Ashley Salter & Austin Brannen's Son

Ashley Salter didn't walk away from The Bachelor or Bachelor in Paradise in love, but she did get engaged to Austin Brannen and got pregnant soon after her last reality TV stint. Ashley gave birth to their son, Brooks Hartman Brannen, in April and it looks like she finally got her happily ever after story.

11. Renee Oteri & Bracy Maynard's Son

Former Bachelor contestant Renee Oteri gave birth to son Alex Jay Maynard in August. This is her third child with husband Bracy Maynard.

12. Erica Rose & Galen Gentry's Daughter

Bachelor alum Erica Rose's daughter, Holland Rose Madeleine Gentry, was born in September 2016 and she is already a fashionista just like her mom rocking that leopard print fur.

As I expected, all of these Bachelor babies are beyond adorable. They all seem to be very comfortable hamming it up for the cameras, so I'm calling it now that at least one of them will end up being on The Bachelor or Bachelorette in the future. We just have to wait for at least 25 years or so.
