Melissa Rycroft has a baby girl

Melissa Rycroft went from a broken heart to motherhood in less than two years — and she couldn’t be more excited about it!

Rycroft and her insurance agent husband Tye Strickland welcomed a baby girl, Ava Grace Strickland, on Wednesday afternoon. The 6-pound 3-ounce baby girl was born in Dallas, according to Rycroft’s publicist.

Both mom and daughter are “resting comfortably,” the rep said.

“Our lives have changed so much in the last two years and today we’ve been blessed with the best change ever, our beautiful baby girl,” Rycroft, 27, told People.

Rycroft and Strickland married in 2009 after former Bachelor Jason Mesnick dumped Rycroft on-air. Ava is the couple’s first child.

Rycroft’s career is red-hot too: She competed on Dancing With the Stars last year and also hosts The Bachelor Pad.

“Everything is wonderful and life is exactly as it should be,” she said.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
