The Tolbert family grew by one with the arrival of Tanner and Jade Roper Tolbert’s baby boy yesterday morning. As she labored at home in preparation for her planned home birth, Tanner tracked her progress in his Instagram Stories, along with photos of the inflatable pool that helped keep mama Jade as comfortable as possible during the process. And now, The Bachelor in Paradise alum and mom of three has shared a beautiful photo of her water birth on Instagram.
The precious moment was captured and posted onto Roper’s Instagram page, where she wrote, “Can’t wait to share all the magic with you and share our birth story!! Right now we are soaking in all these beautiful, new moments. 😍 Thank you for all the love and support and for holding space for our little family in your hearts. I’m one grateful mama. ❤️”
Can we talk about the power of this picture? Pure, blissful happiness positively radiates from mama Jade in this snap. Seriously — loads of commenters, including Stassi Schroeder and fellow home-birthing mama Jamie Otis, remarked on how amazing the birth photo is, and how amazing this woman who just gave birth looks. “Congratulations!!!! How do you look like that right after giving birth?!!” Schroeder wrote.
Roper Tolbert actually responded to one complimentary commenter, explaining, “I’m actually having Tanner hold him and I’m supporting myself up with my hands on the bottom of the pool because I was in so much pain. The love just took over my face I suppose. 😊❤️”
Hubby Tanner uploaded the same picture onto his own profile captioning the post, “Officially outnumbered! 👶🏻👶🏻👶🏻”
Their baby boy joins their two children Brooks Easton and Emerson Avery.
We’re so in love with this picture and are so happy for the Tolbert family. And here’s hoping we’ll see more of this incredible home birth journey soon.
Childbirth is nothing like in the movies, as these beautiful birth photos show.
