Bachelor in Paradise stars Evan Bass and Carly Waddell have revealed what they plan to name their baby girl, who is due in February.
The couple took to Instagram to share sweet snaps that showed them standing in a nursery, where a pink blanket adorned with “Isabella” was draped over the little one’s crib.
“Well, folks, I lost the battle to name our baby girl Evan, but I won the war with the name: ‘Isabella Evelyn Bass,’” Bass explained. “My sweet Grandma Bass was named Evelyn, and she was the best, and I hope that our daughter is fierce like her.”
“Evan and I are SO EXCITED to reveal our little angel’s name on the sweetest new born blanket from @shophighway3 !” Waddell added. “Her full name will be Isabella (Bella for short 😍) Evelyn Bass, and we love her so much already! Can’t believe in about one month we will be wrapping her up in this soft, cuddly little number!” added the mom-to-be.
The news came as the pair celebrated their baby shower in Nashville, Tennessee, on Sunday, with Bachelor alums like Kaitlyn Bristowe, Juelia Kinney and Jade Roper in attendance. Gifted with plenty of girly supplies like fairy dolls and floral headbands, Waddell described the event as a “whimsical fairyland.”
The couple got engaged during the season three finale of Bachelor in Paradise and tied the knot last June, before confirming their pregnancy in August. Bass also has three children from a previous relationship.
