Bachelorette contestant Michael Stagliano and his wife Emily were in for a big surprise on Oct. 12!
The 32-year-old, who appeared on
Jillian Harris' season of the hit dating show, announced on Wednesday that the couple welcomed a baby boy named Bowen Michael a month earlier than expected.
"There certainly aren't words enough to describe how much this picture means to @emilystag and I, but here's my attempt," Michael captioned a family photo. "[Bowen] 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."

The new dad added, "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."
This is the first child for the couple, who married in 2014. Michael's twin brother,
Stephen, just welcomed his second child with fellow Bachelorette alum DeAnna Pappas in March.
