It’s a girl for Jason and Molly Mesnick!

The Bachelor’s” couple welcomed their first child, Riley Anne Mesnick, on Thursday in Seattle, Wash., People magazine reports.

Baby Riley weighed in at 6 pounds, 8 ounces with a “full head of hair,” according to dad, “probably more than I’ll have in the next few years,” Jason quipped.

“What’s amazing to me is when Molly is holding Riley, her eyes do not come off her,” Jason tells People. “I’m already seeing how much Molly loves the baby.”

Jason, 36, and Molly, 28, met in 2009 on Season 13 of “The Bachelor,” where Mesnick infamously dropped his chosen one Melissa Rycroft on TV, in favor of his runner-up — Molly. Jason and Molly married the following year.
