Rycroft's son, who was named Beckett Thomas Strickland, was reportedly born 19.2 inches long and weighed-in at seven pounds and seven ounces. The couple already has a three-year-old daughter named Ava Grace, who was born in February 2011.
"He's perfect and beautiful. 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," Rycroft added. "I feel very lucky that I get to experience the bond between mother and daughter and between mother and son. I hope he's a little mama's boy."
Rycroft vied for Jason Mesnick's heart on The Bachelor's thirteenth season, which was filmed in late 2008 and aired in early 2009. She got engaged to Mesnick during the edition's final Rose Ceremony -- but he later dumped her on-air in favor of runner-up (and eventual wife) Molly Malaney during the January 2009 taping of the season's After the Final Rose special.
Rycroft then reunited with Strickland, her former boyfriend whom she had previously dated on and off after meeting three years earlier.
Rycroft returned to Dancing with the Stars to compete on the show's fifteenth season dubbed Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars in 2012. She was crowned the winner with professional partner Tony Dovolani after competing against memorable veteran celebrity dancers.
Rycroft and Strickland also starred in Melissa and Tye: A New Reality together in 2012, however, the reality show was canceled by CMT after only one season.
