Renee Oteri has welcomed her third child into the world.

The former The Bachelor bachelorette gave birth to a baby boy, her second child with husband Bracy Maynard, on Wednesday, Entertainment Tonight reported.

The couple named their adorable son Alex Jay Maynard -- AJ for short.

"He was born on the 10th, 7 lbs. 9 oz. of just sweetness," Oteri, 34, gushed to ET. "He's a happy + healthy little dude, looks just like his daddy."

Oteri and Maynard wed in March 2014, only three short weeks after getting engaged. The couple, who currently live in Seattle, welcomed a baby boy Jaxon in January 2015. Oteri also has a 10-year-old son Ben from a previous relationship.

Oteri revealed that she and her husband didn't decide on a name for their baby until the last minute.

"The name was decided after birth, which is something we have never done before," she said. "Let's just say there was a minivan on the line. Serious terms. Haha!"

Oteri said she had made a deal with Maynard in that if she could pick a non-traditional name for their son, he could buy a minivan, which is a vehicle he surprisingly wants pretty badly. However, since AJ is a fairly popular name, the pair is still hunting for a car, and Oteri prefers a big SUV.

Oteri announced she was pregnant again back in March on Instagram.

Oteri competed for Juan Pablo Galavis' heart on The Bachelor's 18th season but got sent home right after he visited her hometown of Sarasota, FL and met her family. Her elimination was filmed in October 2013 although the episode didn't air until February of the following year.

Maynard was a childhood best friend of Oteri's and also her first kiss. The couple actually dated after Oteri divorced her ex-husband in 2008 after four years of marriage.

Oteri also starred on the third season of The Taste, which premiered in December 2014. She was ousted in the very first episode.

Oteri isn't the only member of The Bachelor franchise who recently welcomed a child. Jillian Harris just gave birth to a baby boy earlier this month, while Sean Lowe and his wife Catherine Giudici became first-time parents in July.
