Michael Stagliano and wife Emily Tuchscherer welcome a baby boy

Michael Stagliano and his wife, Emily Tuchscherer, have welcomed their first child into the world.
Emily recently gave birth to a baby boy, Bowen, and Michael has been sharing adorable photos of his newborn son on social media ever since.
Michael, a fifth-season The Bachelorette bachelor and second-season Bachelor Pad winner, first publicly posted about becoming a father on October 11, when Bowen was two-days-old.
"There certainly aren't words enough to describe how much this picture means to @emilystag and I, but here's my attempt. Bowen Michael Stagliano came a month early (he really wanted to hangout with us). He was born at 6:33AM, and came into the world just as the sun was rising over the mountains through the window outside the delivery room," Michael captioned an October 9 photo of the family of three.
"He and Mom are doing great! Because he got here early he's spending a few extra days in the NICU... and I can't...stop...smiling. He's doing well. We will bring him home on Saturday. Thanks for all the love and support for our little guy. #StagClan."
Michael clearly made an effort to shower his son with love and affection while he spent some time in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
"My big guy," the former reality TV star wrote alongside one image of himself holding Bowen in the hospital.
In one cute picture, Emily was holding Bowen up to face the camera and the little one appeared happy and surprised.
"Are you kidding me!?!? #luckydaddy," Michael captioned the October 16 picture.
The happy and proud parents were finally able to bring their baby boy home the following day, according toUs Weekly, and then Michael took more selfies.
"Late nights with my buddy," he wrote alongside one image of Bowen snuggled up to his chest.
Michael announced he and Emily were expecting their first child together, a son, on the day of their two-year wedding anniversary in late May. They met four-and-a-half years ago.
The pair chose the baby's name before they were even married, however, Michael and Emily told People earlier this year they wanted to wait until the baby's arrival to reveal it.
"Totally healthy to talk about baby names on date number three!" joked Michael, who proposed to Emily seven months after they began dating. "[But] it worked out for us."
Being an uncle apparently inspired Michael to start a family of his own. His twin brother Stephen Stagliano and his wife, former The Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas, have two children.
