Reality Star Jenna Cooper Welcomes Baby Girl — Find Out Her Name!

“Bachelor in Paradise” alum Jenna Cooper, 30, is a mom for the first time.

On Saturday, Cooper and boyfriend Karl Hudson IV welcomed a baby girl, who weighed 7 lbs., 7 oz., and measured 20.75 inches.

The couple released a joint statement, telling Us Weekly, “We can’t even describe the overwhelming love and happiness we feel meeting our little sunshine! We are so thankful for everyone’s support, and can’t wait to share more fun updates.”

The couple named their daughter Presley Belle Hudson.

Earlier in the day, Jenna revealed, “We are heading to the hospital now..my contractions are about 4-5 mins apart. I feel fine until they hit, then I can’t really talk or move😅🙈My family just picked up Pearl (who doesn’t seem to be in the best mood ha). I’m so excited, nervous, and ready to meet her! Really hoping everything goes smoothly, and will let you know more when I can❤️.”

In March, Cooper opened up about giving birth during the COVID-19 pandemic. She wrote on Instagram, “There is so much uncertainty in the world😅But I’m really trying to stay positive and keep the faith! I already had concerns about bringing a little one into this crazy world, but I’m just determined to show her the good in people, and give her all my unconditional love💕.”

A month before, Jenna revealed she was pregnancy with a baby girl.

Cooper announced she was expecting in January. At the time, she wrote on Instagram, “I hope you know that I already love you more than I could have imagined possible. I hope you chase all of your dreams, and I’ll be there supporting you the whole way. I hope you get my spirit and sense of humor, and never stop laughing. I hope you get your daddy’s thoughtfulness and work ethic, and never stop being curious. I hope you can ignore the negativity of the world, and always stand up for yourself. I hope you love Jesus with all your heart, and never forget how special you are.”

The pregnancy news came a week after she made it Instagram official with Karl. She gushed, “I met him a year ago, and now I can’t imagine life without him. He has shown me what it’s like to be with a real man. With real morals. And with an unselfish and loving heart, and I’m never going back.”

Jenna was previously engaged to “Bachelor in Paradise” alum Jordan Kimball, but they called it quits in October 2018.
