AceShowbiz - Tia Booth and Taylor Mock have become first-time parents. The former contestant of "The Bachelor" season 22 and her fiance have welcomed their first child together, a baby boy.
Excited by the baby's arrival, the couple announced the news on Instagram on Wednesday, December 7. Sharing an audio clip from what sounded like the tot's first moments, they wrote, "Tatum Booth Mock 12/6/22 6:13am. Best day of our lives."
The post has since been flooded with congratulatory comments from many. One in particular was Tia's ex Colton Underwood, who replied, "congrats momma!" Raven Gates gushed, "HE is an angel baby!! & he's so blessed to have you as his momma!!!"
Tia confirmed she was expecting her first child with Taylor on June 19. At that time, she shared black-and-white photos of her and her partner and one snap of her late dad to honor him on Father's Day. She first penned, "This has undoubtedly been my most challenging season thus far. I've never felt such overwhelming sadness and pure joy at the same time. It's been difficult to be grateful for the good as if one of the most important people in my life is missing the celebration."
"While I wish I could tell my dad all the good news in person, it brings me peace that he knows about it long before I do. Welcoming a new little life while mourning the loss of another proves that high emotions can exist simultaneously, and I have no doubt my dad had a hand in this," she added. "Happy heavenly Father's Day to the first man I ever loved and Happy soon-to-be Father's Day to my forever."
As for Tia and Taylor, they met in 2021 just months before she appeared on the seventh season of "Bachelor in Paradise". The pair went Instagram official in October that year and got engaged six months later.
