By

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are officially parents!

Burnham gave birth to a baby girl on Wednesday. The reality TV star broke the news with a post on his Instagram Story, which read, "We have a healthy BEAUTIFUL baby girl 6lbs, 13oz long ... Mommy and baby are doing great, we are so incredibly happy."

Ahead of welcoming their daughter into the world, both parents took to Instagram to share pics from the hospital. They appeared in good spirits and excited to meet their little one, with Burnham hilariously pushing Luyendyk in a wheelchair through the hospital hallway and teasing him about how long it took to find a parking spot.

"IT'S HAPPENING!" Luyendyk captioned a sweet pic of him and Burnham cradling her stomach.

Hours later, Luyendyk once again took to his Instagram Story to give an update, revealing that Burnham was given an epidural around 5 a.m.

"She is doing great and everything is going smoothly!" Luyendyk wrote. "We are going to try and catch a little sleep and hopefully we will meet our baby soon."

The couple announced they were expecting their first child together last November. The two found love in an unconventional way on season 22 of The Bachelor when Luyendyk actually proposed to contestant Becca Kufrin, then later broke up with her on camera to be with Burnham, who he initially chose as his runner-up.

"Nothing compares, absolutely nothing compares to the moment you find out you’re going to be a dad!" Luyendyk wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of him kissing Burnham and holding up their sonogram photos. "We cried, we laughed and it really was such a special moment for us, we’re so freakin’ happy!"

In January, the two married in Hawaii, and the ceremony was officiated by Bachelor host Chris Harrison. Since then, they've been eagerly awaiting the birth of their baby girl. In April, 37-year-old Luyendyk and 27-year-old Burnham shared romantic pics from their babymoon in Bermuda. 

ET spoke to Luyendyk and Burnham that same month at IndyCar and Acura's Grand Prix of Long Beach, where they said they were ready to be parents. 

"We're really, really excited to meet her. It's been a long time coming," Burnham said. "I've been pregnant for seven-ish months, so it's about time to get my body back and to meet our baby. We're really happy." 

"I think it's cool, you know? We're experiencing being new parents, so we're on all the apps, learning about the development of the baby, and it's just been kind of an awesome ride so far," Luyendyk added. "I can't wait for her to come."
