Congratulations to Melissa Rycroft and husband Tye Strickland.

The former "The Bachelor" star and "Dancing With The Stars" champion gave birth to her second child on Sunday, April 20. Rycroft confirmed to People magazine that she and Strickland welcomed a baby boy named Beckett Thomas Strickland. Their newborn son joins daughter Ava, born in 2011.

"This little guy has been teasing us about his arrival for the last month so it is only fitting that he surprise us with his arrival on Easter Sunday," Rycroft said. "He's perfect and beautiful. Ava can't wait for us to bring him home to be able to show us all of the big sister duties she's been practicing."

Rycroft revealed the news that she was expecting her second child on her official Twitter account in October 2013. She shared her excitement by posting a photo on her official Twitter account of herself holding a positive digital home pregnancy test.

The 31-year-old reality star is best known for starring in season 13 of ABC's "The Bachelor" and competing on "Dancing With The Stars." She took home the mirror ball trophy during the show's all-star themed season with partner Tony Dovolani.
