He may not have won the heart of Jillian Harris in season 5 of The Bachelorette, but it seems things worked out his way in the end! Kiptyn Locke is now a father to a baby boy!
The 37-year-old revealed his happy news on Instagram, sharing snaps of little Koltyn, who he welcomed into the world with girlfriend Samm Murphy on July 16.
Along with one of the photos, Kiptyn included a message to his newborn son, promising to be there for him, to put him first and to always be someone he can count on.
"I promise to live my life in a way that gives you an example of a good man and positive role model," he added. "I will teach you to respect, appreciate, and love a woman. To open doors, take your first bite second, and be a source of strength, security, and caring."
He finished the lengthy message by saying: "Above all else, I promise you love, unconditional love each and every day until I take my last breath. Welcome to the world, son."
Kiptyn also shared a photo collage of his new son, saying that the "little man is just cruising through his first week of life."
Congrats to the happy new parents!
