Jason Mesnick and wife Molly Malaney have welcomed their first daughter together, Riley Anne Mesnick, who was born on Thursday.
Baby Riley Anne weighed in at 6 lbs, 8 oz. and is 18 and 3/4 inches long. She has a head full of hair, the excited couple revealed.
Jason Mesnick the former star of “The Bachelor”, is also a parent to 8-year-old son Tyler from his previous marriage.
Jason said that he received a text message from a friend that said a woman would go into labor if the area between ankle and Achilles was massaged. “I did it last night for about three minutes and Molly woke me up at about three this morning, after she’d been up for about an hour and a half, so maybe it does work?” he wondered.
Jason, who is also the father to son Ty, 8, from a previous marriage, shared the good news on Twitter on March 14.
“We welcomed the most beautiful healthy baby girl to our family today, Riley Anne Mesnick,” he tweeted. “Thank you all for your well wishes!”
The proud second-time father said of his wife, “What’s amazing to me is when Molly is holding Riley, her eyes do not come off her. I’m already seeing how much Molly loves the baby”.
Jason also said that Riley’s big brother is also excited to have a sibling. The proud dad said, “Ty has been asking for a sibling for so long. He was here earlier holding her and kissing her and it was really, really cute. We’re so happy.”
Molly Malaney celebrated her daughter’s “baby party” in January. She said of the baby shower, “I knew these girls could throw a party, but they didn’t leave one detail behind. From the candy bar to the little elephant tags on the drink glasses, everything matched perfectly. I loved it!”
