Desiree Hartsock and husband Chris Siegfried recall their son Asher's October 19 natural birth very differently.

"It was unique and fun to watch when the baby came out," Siegfried, 30, told Us Weekly.

"Fun to watch?! Oh, man!" Hartsock, 30, replied with a laugh.

The ninth-season The Bachelorette star said she was in labor for only two hours at Seattle's Center for Birth, but Hartsock still admitted it was one of "the most painful things you'll ever feel."

"Chris was such a savior to be honest. It was just nice to know he was there," said Hartsock, who also had help from a midwife and doula.

Siegfried was there for comfort but also physical support, as he sat behind his wife and propped her up during the delivery. Hartsock said she kept her eyes closed the entire time.

"That's how I was getting through everything," the My Fairytale Wedding author explained. "It helped me and also, I called it a growl, but it wasn't a growl."

Siegfried added, "She was moaning and breathing."

Little Asher apparently looks like his father, with Siegfried joking, "I'm just happy he's got a good hairline. And he's definitely going to be tall."

Since Siegfried is a former Chicago Cubs minor leaguer, he wanted to incorporate his passion for baseball into Asher's name somehow.

"Chris was like, 'What do you think about Cubby?'" Hartsock revealed.

However, that name didn't sit well with the wedding dress designer and new mom.

"When he said, 'Wrigley,' it felt right," Hartsock said of the now-mortgage banker, referencing the 2016 World Series contenders' ballpark.

Now the married couple is just adjusting to life at home with their newborn son.

"He's pretty calm," Hartsock shared. "But he hates being changed. It's the end of the world! And when we took him in the car for the first time, it was absolutely terrible!"

But Siegfried has all the faith in the world when it comes to his wife's parenting skills and nurturing ability.

"She instantly figured out what to do," Siegfried gushed to Us. "Right when he was born, Des just kicked it into a different gear. She does everything and watching her, I'm impressed."

The Seattle-based reality TV couple became engaged on The Bachelorette's Season 9 finale, which aired in Summer 2013, and tied the knot in January 2015.
