    Melissa Rycroft Strickland and hubby Tye have welcomed their first child together, daughter Ava Grace, E! News confirmed Wednesday.

    The 6-pound, 3-ounce bundle of joy was born this afternoon at a Dallas hospital, according to the reality TV star's rep, who adds that mommy and baby are "both resting comfortably."

    "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," says Melissa.
