Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
He’s here! Ben Zorn headed over to Instagram on Wednesday to give Bachelor Nation a glimpse at his baby boy, Logan Thomas, whom he and fiancée Stacy Santilena welcomed on February 14.
“Officially a family of 3! Please welcome Logan Thomas Zorn,” he captioned a Tuesday Instagram post, featuring a sweet photo of the new parents posing with their bundle of joy.
Ben continued, “Baby boy and Mama are doing great. We were so excited to bring this little boy into the world on Valentine’s Day of all days! We’re beginning to adjust to our new normal, and realizing teamwork is everything!”
According to Us Weekly, Logan Thomas arrived at 6:41 p.m. on Valentine’s Day at 19 inches long and weighing 7.9 lbs. “Since we couldn’t get married, we decided to have a baby instead and keep our life moving forward!” Ben told the publication. “Wedding is still planned for this summer!”
Days before Stacy gave birth to Logan Thomas, Ben revealed in a touching Instagram post that he felt more than ready for daddy duty.
“This crazy chapter is almost at an end and I couldn’t be more excited to finally meet my little buddy!” the handsome Bachelor Nation star wrote alongside a photo of himself posing with Stacy.
“I can’t wait to see @ssantilena with him, she’s going to be an amazing mom,” he added. “Plus, I already know he will be a mama’s boy, and I’m totally OK with that.”
For the pic, Ben held a watermelon while squatting down next to Stacy’s baby bump. “These fruits are starting to get a lot heavier so hopefully he comes soon!” wrote the medical sales rep, who routinely kept his followers up to date on Logan Thomas’ growth by comparing him to fresh produce.
Back in August, Ben and Stacy revealed that they were having a son. Ben — who appeared on Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season of “The Bachelorette” in 2015 — had shared the sex of his baby during a party replete with a pink and blue balloon canopy and sparklers that shot out blue smoke.
“The best is yet to come... Baby BOY on the way and I couldn’t be happier!” Ben wrote on Instagram at the time, accompanied by footage of the big reveal.
“All my close friends have girls so it’s going to be a lot of learning on my end but I couldn’t be more excited to have my boy,” he continued. “I would’ve been happy either way, but I’m so pumped to be raising a young man. I can’t wait to share all life’s amazing things with this little guy!”
Ben and Stacy announced their exciting baby news on July 25, 2020 — the day they originally planned to get married. The San Jose, California-based couple postponed their nuptials due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“When we decided to postpone our wedding, we talked about the future and how this would effect it. Naturally we started talking about a family,” he wrote on social media. “I’ve always known I wanted to be a dad but didn’t know when I would be ready.”
Ben also said doctors told the pair it would be “extremely difficult” for Stacy to get pregnant, but “out of some miracle (or powerful swimmers ;) we started trying and got pregnant on the first try! WE ARE EXPECTING!”
