Former Bachelor contestant Kacie Boguskie Gaston has given birth to a bouncing baby boy!

The 28-year-old went into labor on Monday, taking to Twitter to joke, "It's LABOR DAY! The kind where your water breaks!! Baby Ranger is on his way!"

She finally welcomed her son, Ranger Gaston, into the world on Tuesday at 5:26 p.m.

The happy new mama took to Instagram to share the first photo of her cute, little nugget on Wednesday morning.

"Hello world! Ranger Gaston|9-8-15|5:26|4lb14oz|17in|," she captioned the close-up. "He's perfectly healthy and happy! @rustygaston and I can't believe what a blessing God has given us!"

She also quoted Psalm 139:13-14a, "'For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am beautifully and wonderfully made.'"

Kacie is also doing well. She gushed to E! News exclusively, "Rusty and I feel so blessed to have such an amazing son! He's absolutely perfect and has stolen our hearts. We can't wait to see what God has in store for him."

She added, "Labor went amazing. Rusty was such an amazing supporter and I couldn't have done it without our amazing doctors and nurses. It's such a miracle what your body can do."

E! News broke the story about Kacie's pregnancy in June after she revealed her growing baby bump to the world on Instagram. Since then, she and her hubby have been preparing to take on their new role as parents by taking birthing classes and learning the ropes of swaddling.

Fans of The Bachelor may remember Kacie from both Ben Flajnik and Sean Lowe's respective seasons. Although she never saw a final rose on the show, she did receive one when she met Rusty and married him in May 2014.

"I still can't believe I found someone so perfect for me," the blushing bride told E! News shortly after she tied the knot.

Aw! Congratulations to the happy couple on their blossoming family!
