DeAnna Pappas Stagliano, who starred in ABC's "The Bachelorette" season four in 2008, has welcome a baby girl with husband Stephen Stagliano.

"Our little angel is here! She was born on Feb. 6th," Stephen Stagliano, who turned 30 on Feb. 4, tweeted on Saturday. "Daddy now has two loves in his life! Thank you all for the love and support."

Shortly afterward, Pappas Stagliano, 32, added, "Can't begin to explain the joy I have with my baby girl," whose name has not yet been released. "Perfect husband and perfect baby. I'm very lucky. Thank you all for the tweets!"

The couple -- who met when former "The Bachelorette" contestant Michael Stagliano introduced her to his twin brother -- married in 2011 and announced the pregnancy in August. "We are so very excited!" Pappas Stagliano told People magazine at the time. "We had been trying for almost a year; we wanted this so badly."
