Creating even more reasons to celebrate, Melissa Rycroft welcomed her son into the world on Easter Sunday (April 20).

The former "Bachelor" contestant gave birth to son Beckett Thomas in Dallas, Texas. According to E!, the newborn weighed 7 lbs., 7 oz., and measured 19.2 inches.

"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. He's perfect and beautiful," Rycroft told E! News. "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."

This is the second child for Melissa and her husband Tye Strickland, who wed in December 2009. They are also parents to daughter Ava Grace, who was born in February 2011.
