Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs are introducing their baby boy to the world.

On Monday, the Bachelor in Paradise alums posted a joint Instagram post, sharing the first few photos of their newborn son. In the photos, Kufrin, 33, holds her son while she sits in the hospital bed as fiancé Jacobs, 31, leans in to take their first photo as a family of three.

In their caption, the couple revealed their son's name and shared where they got their inspiration from. "Benson Lee Jacobs Kufrin cracked our hearts wide open on September 21, 2023," they wrote. "No amount of words can begin to capture the amount of love and awe we have over this tiny man."

"We are forever changed with this one's abundance and can't believe we are parents to this gift. Benson, Benny for short, is after the town where my father was born and raised. Lee is for Thomas's father who sacrifices so much for this country and others."

"And Jacobs Kufrin is pretty self explanatory but we wanted both parts of us to make this little one whole ❤️," they said. "Now we're off to go cry again over how much we love him."

The couple initially announced their baby news on Sunday, with Jacobs adorably announcing their son's arrival with an Instagram post that featured a photo of the couple's front porch.

Their stoop was newly decorated with a doormat printed with the message, "Baby Sleeping. Please don't ruin this for us." The porch also featured a hanging sign that declared, "Shhh… Baby is sleeping."

The proud new dad captioned the post simply, "Home," adding a blue heart.

The two met while competing on season 7 of Bachelor in Paradise in 2021. Although they broke up during the season finale, the pair eventually got back together, getting engaged in 2022.

This is Kufrin's third engagement. She first got engaged to Arie Luyendyk Jr. on The Bachelor, then accepted a proposal from Garrett Yrigoyen on her own season of The Bachelorette.

Kufrin and Jacobs' engagement made waves because of the role reversal: Kufrin was the one who proposed to Jacobs. However, in October 2022, the couple got engaged again after Jacobs planned his own proposal.

In April, they announced that they were expanding their family, making their announcement on their respective Instagram accounts. Posing with their two canine furbabies and a strip of ultrasound photos, the couple revealed that they will be adding a fifth member to the clan.

"Party of 5 coming September 2023," the two wrote, alongside a series of shots with the couple showing off the baby pics to the dogs, and Jacobs proudly holding up a tiny San Diego Padres onesie.

"Little Bebe, we can't wait to meet you, hold you, and watch you grow. We already love you to the moon and back - mom & dad."
