The Bachelor: Melissa Rycroft Strickland Delivers Baby Girl!

February 17, 2011 10:45 AM by Candace Young

Reality television personality Melissa Rycroft Strickland, who went from The Bachelor to co-hosting Bachelor Pad, has delivered her first child, a baby girl, in Dallas, Texas.  Keep reading for all of the details…

Melissa Rycroft Strickland has come a long way since The Bachelor’s Jason Mesnick famously proposed, and then dumped her, on national television. In addition to nabbing a co-hosting gig with Chris Harrison on Bachelor Pad, Melissa wed her love, insurance agent Tye Strickland in a ceremony in Mexico, moved into a beautiful new home in Dallas, and has now given birth to her first child, a baby girl named Ava Grace.

Ava Grace Strickland was born in Dallas and weighed 6 lbs, 13 oz.  Melissa told People Magazine, “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.”

Melissa, who got her start in reality television on CMT’s Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders: Making the Team, and who did a stint on Dancing With the Stars, making it to the final three with partner Tony Dolovani, has also been busy with another project – writing her memoirs. Presumably, she’ll be dishing lots of scoop from behind the scenes of the four reality series she’s been involved with, so it should be interesting and revealing!

Her publisher, Simon & Schuster is calling the book, “an incredible Cinderella story of heartbreak and happiness.” It’s due to hit shelves in August of this year and is already available for pre-order on Amazon.
