The countdown is on. Carly Waddell and Evan Bass are still one month away from their daughter's due date, but the Bachelor in Paradise stars already have a baby name ready to go. The couple recently revealed that they will be naming their little girl Isabella Evelyn Bass.
While Evan, who is already dad to three boys from a previous relationship, jokingly hinted that he wanted to name his daughter Evan, he was more than happy with Carly's choice. "Well folks, I lost the battle to name our baby girl Evan but I won the war with the name: “Isabella Evelyn Bass,'" he wrote. "My sweet Grandma Bass was named Evelyn and she was the best and I hope that our daughter is fierce like her."
This will be the first child for Carly, 32, and Evan, 35, who met on the reality dating show in 2016. After tying the knot last June, the couple found out they were expecting while in Mexico on their honeymoon. “We were in Mexico and it was actually a few days after our wedding and it was a little Mexican town called Salulita,” Evan told Us Weekly. “She was late. I was like, ‘You’re really funny. Let’s go to a Mexican drug store and get a test.’ We go into this drugstore and after she went and took the test and she comes out and was like, ‘I don’t know what that means. It’s in Spanish.’”
He continued, "I had to Google and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, you’re pregnant.’ We freaked out. It was extra special to find out down the street from where we got married, engaged, everything.”

Our daughter is already devious and uncooperative and standing on her head doing yoga when all we want to do it take pictures of her 😂 seems pretty typical of a child made from @theebass and I! Can’t wait til she greets the world! (Also I still barely have a bump….so this pic must do for now!) I’m due Feb 16th! 🙌🏽👶🏼
And if their last ultrasound is any indication, Bella is going to be one feisty little girl. "Our daughter is already devious and uncooperative and standing on her head doing yoga when all we want to do is take pictures of her,” Carly captioned an Instagram post. "Seems pretty typical of a child made from @theebass and I! Can’t wait til she greets the world!" We can't either!
