“I accidentally gave birth at home last night, in our master closet, she wrote alongside a photo of her holding her new baby boy. “I’ve been still processing the shock of this all, as this was not all at what I had planned, but I am so so thankful for each person who helped bring our son into the world safely. I’ll share my whole birth story soon, but long story short, my waters broke and 75 minutes later I gave birth to our healthy baby boy while clutching a bench in our closet. It was one of the scariest moments of my life because I felt so out of control, but Tanner, Tanner’s mom, my mom and the medics and firefighters kept me going when I felt like the world was caving in on me and my unborn baby. ”

She concluded by explaining why she shared the picture that she did. “I was going to share the happy, cute Instagrammable pics first, but this felt right to me. So incredibly grateful for the support system we had and for this beautiful boy I get to hold in my arms.”

“A personal congratulations, Jade and Tanner who met on the beach welcomed their second child. She gave birth to her baby boy in their master closet last night. True story. So God bless guys. We wish you the best. ”

The new baby joins big sister,  Emerson “Emmy” Avery, who will turn 2 on Aug. 17, making them a family of four. The couple fell in love on Bachelor in Paradise after both their previous attempts at love on The Bachelor (Chris Soules) and The Bachelorette (Kaitlyn Bristowe) failed. They married in January 2016.

Tanner announced that they were expecting their second child on Instagram saying, “By the looks of that smile… it looks like Emmy is excited to be a big sister… baby #2 coming to an instagram near you August 2019,” he wrote.

Congratulations to the happy couple.
