“Big Brother” alums Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas are parents again!
On Wednesday, the pair welcomed a baby boy, who weighed 8 lbs., 8 oz. He tweeted, “Thank you for all the well wishes for Rachel and the baby. Rachel and our baby boy are both healthy and doing well. They are recovering at UCLA. I am sure it will not be too long until Rachel shares some pics, but I will leave that up to our momma warrior."
They have not decided a name for their precious bundle of joy. In another tweet, Brendon said, “No pic of the baby just yet, but he is a big boy! So much love and respect for Rachel. How she did it I will never know.”
Rachel and Brendon, who met on Season 12 of “Big Brother” in 2010, are also the parents of daughter Adora Boreali, 4.

In July, Rachel shared on Instagram, “I told Adora the next few months are hers! We’re going to do everything fun together and make lots of memories as a family of 3!!!! Like bike riding / beach days / wildlife viewing / camping - basically everything especially since we can’t really travel these days. I want her to know how important she is to us.”
The couple announced they were expecting in May. Brendon told People magazine, “In the midst of a pandemic, I am most concerned with Rachel and the baby both maintaining their health throughout the pregnancy. Honestly, that is all I care for at the moment, their safety.”
At the time, Rachel joked that she was already “already planning” her kids’ future in reality TV.
Along with “Big Brother,” Rachel and Brendon also appeared on multiple seasons of “The Amazing Race.”
