Dallas Cowboys cheerleader-turned-ABC reality star Melissa Rycroft had her first child with husband Tye Strickland Tuesday, a baby girl named Ava Grace who weighed in at 6 pounds, 13 ounces, RadarOnline.com has learned.
“Our lives have changed so much in the last two years and today we’ve been blessed with the best change ever — our beautiful baby girl,” she told People.
Strickland, an insurance agent, married the brunette beauty in December 2009.
Rycroft gained fame on ABC’s The Bachelor after she was famously dumped by Jason Mesnick during a live broadcast. She’s also been featured as a contestant on Dancing With The Stars, and as a correspondent on Good Morning America.
