Bachelor heartthrob Nick Viall and his fiancée Natalie Joy are officially parents!

The podcaster and certified surgical technologist shared the arrival of their first child together on February 5. “River Rose Viall. 2-2-2024 named after Natalie’s great grandmother and niece…the best part of life starts now,” the couple captioned snapshots of their newborn.

River is a gender-neutral name of English origin that’s pretty straightforward in its meaning but symbolically can represent growth, tranquility and life. River Rose isn’t the first to make her debut in Hollywood. The couple’s daughter shares a first and middle name with singer Kelly Clarkson’s daughter.

Viall and Joy orchestrated a simple balloon sex reveal and shared the big news with the world on Instagram on September 6. The couple held a giant black balloon with question marks on it before popping it with a pin and revealing bright pink balloons and confetti on the inside. “Baby Viall is a…” they simply captioned the video.

The soon-to-be-wed duo first announced their big baby news on August 8. “Our biggest dream came true,” the couple captioned their black and white maternity photos posted to Instagram. Viall donned a simple suit while Joy wore a romantic white satin dress to accent her bump, complete with long billowy sleeves.

Celebrities from Vanderpump Rules’ Ariana Madix to Jersey Shore’s JWOW sent their congratulations to the happy couple in the comments. “Congrats sugar! Little one is about to have the most iconic parents,” wrote Cruel Summer’s Olivia Holt. “I couldn’t be more thrilled for you two! Your dream for as long as we’ve known you. You’re going to make amazing parents,” added Bachelor in Paradise Canada host Sharleen Joynt.

Viall and Joy have been together since July 2020 and first confirmed their relationship in 2021. In January 2023, the Bachelor nation favorites got engaged. “For the rest of my life, it’s you,” the captioned photos from Viall’s proposal.

Last month fans believe Viall hinted at their big news with a post celebrating their three-year dating anniversary. “I love our family we’ve started together can’t wait to see how it grows,” he captioned a carousel of photos of Joy and their dog Jeff. “Thanks for 3 incredible years and for always fighting for us. Can’t wait for the rest of our lives together.”

Our best to Viall and Joy as they embark on their first year as parents!
