“Bachelor in Paradise” stars Jade Roper Tolbert and Tanner Tolbert have welcomed their first child.

“We did it! Our little sweetheart is here!” Jade, 30, announced on her Instagram Thursday.

“She arrived on her own terms, quickly and 4 weeks early, but she is perfect in every way, healthy and doing well.”

E! News reported the baby arrived at 10:03 a.m. Thursday.

Her stats: 6 pounds, 8.8 ounces and 20 inches long. The couple did not share the baby’s name. They’ve been referring to her as “Baby Janner.”

So now Bachelor Nation is a wee bit bigger.

Jade, a former “Bachelor” contestant, and Tanner, who grew up in Overland Park and competed on “The Bachelorette,” met and got engaged on “Bachelor in Paradise” in 2015. They married in January 2016.

Jade documented her pregnancy on Instagram, where she’s also posted photos of the house they have built in Johnson County, Kan.

“Precious little girl, there are no words to describe the feeling of holding you in our arms for this first time and looking into your beautiful eyes,” she wrote in the birth announcement. “We love you so much.”
