ET can confirm that Renee Oteri Maynard gave birth to a baby boy on Wednesday named Alex Jay Maynard, but the family will call him AJ.
This is the second child for Renee, who appeared on season 18 of The Bachelor, and her husband, Bracy Maynard. "He was born on the 10th, 7 lbs. 9 oz. of just sweetness," she gushed to ET. "He's a happy + healthy little dude, looks just like his daddy."
The former reality star also admitted that she didn't have a name picked out this time around. "The name was decided after birth, which is something we have never done before," she disclosed. "Let's just say there was a minivan on the line. Serious terms. Haha!"
Renee tells ET that she made a deal with her husband that if she got to give their son non-traditional name, he would be able to buy a minivan. "We all make promises to ourselves. I made one a very long time ago that I would never drive a minivan (no offense to all the minivan fans). Bracy and I have been on the hunt for a new SUV that can fit all the kids, the dog, the jogger, etc. In my mind, I'm thinking my manly macho hubby is wanting an Escalade or a Tahoe," she explained. "But no. I'll never forget the day he turned to me and said, 'Babe, let's get a minivan!' So that was the trade-off."
Renee quipped, "So anyway, after meeting this little love and seeing his face, he's definitely an AJ and the vehicle search still continues.”
Renee announced she was pregnant back in March with an Instagram post. "Bumpin' Here we go AGAIN!" she captioned the topless photo of herself.
After it didn't work out with Juan Pablo Galavis on The Bachelor, Renee reconnected with her now husband after knowing him for over 20 years. They were married in March 2014 and had their first son, Jaxon, in January 2015. Renee also has a 10-year-old son, Ben, from a previous relationship.
