“Bachelorette” couple Desiree and Chris Siegfried welcome their first child, a baby boy. Parents are “overjoyed” to share the big news with the world.
Little Asher Wrigley Siegfried was born on October 19, weighing 8 pounds and being, for the moment, 20.5 inches tall. But if we judge according to his parents’ height, this particular aspect is one he doesn’t have to worry about. Desiree and Chris are two tall beautiful adults who met on the set of “Bachelorette”, with Desiree having been through some unfortunate relationships in the past and hoping to find Mr. Right. And she did.
Those of you who have watched “Bachelorette” Season 9, remember that Desiree, at the time 27-years-old and bearing her family name, Hartstock, was torn between two male contestants. One was Chris and the other one was Brooks. The way the romance has unfolded, it let us believe that Desiree chose Chris only after Brooks made it easier for her, as he admitted to having no feelings for her. At the time, a broken-hearted Desiree became an item with handsome Chris Siegfried and, since the end of the season, in 2013, they have not been apart.
The couple became engaged in the Season Finale, when Desiree delivered the final rose to Chris and he have her a 3.5-carat Neil Lane engagement ring. They have tied the knot in January 2015 and announced the baby news in April, on Instagram. “We have a bun in the oven and it’s not the warm pastry kind”, Mrs. Siegfried captioned a photo of her and hubby cuddling and pointing towards her belly.
Two months ago they announced they were going to have a boy through another Instagram picture, featuring a baseball with the words “IT’S A Boy” written on it.
And just two weeks ago, they gave us a sneak peek into the baby’s nursery.
