Melissa Rycroft and husband Tye Strickland got way more than a visit from a bunny yesterday! The Bachelor reality stars welcomed their second child on Easter. Beckett Thomas Strickland was born in the afternoon weighing in at seven pounds and seven ounces and joins new big sister Ava Grace.

“This little guy has been teasing us about his arrival for the last month so it is only fitting that he surprise us with his arrival on Easter Sunday,” Melissa told People. “He’s perfect and beautiful. Ava can’t wait for us to bring him home to be able to show us all of the big sister duties she’s been practicing.”

Melissa also tweeted, “Thank you for all the sweet congratulations messages!! We are so thrilled and blessed to finally meet baby Beckett!”

We can’t think of too many things that are sweeter (other than Cadbury Creme Eggs and Peeps, of course) than having a baby on Easter. We seriously hope that Melissa and Tye took some sort of bunny-themed picture of Beckett yesterday. Beckett in a bunny blanket? Beckett as a bunny in a basket? Beckett in a basket? The possibilities are endless.
