Four days after welcoming their first baby together, the Bachelor in Paradise couple revealed that they named their son Benson Lee Jacobs Kufrin—Benny, for short—after the town where Becca's dad grew up.
"Benson Lee Jacobs Kufrin cracked our hearts wide open on September 21, 2023," the 33-year-old wrote in a joint Instagram post with her fiancé on Sept. 25. "No amount of words can begin to capture the amount of love and awe we have over this tiny man. We are forever changed with this one's abundance and can't believe we are parents to this gift."
As for their son's middle name? That's a tribute to Thomas' own father, "who sacrifices so much for this country and others," according to the new parents.
"And Jacobs Kufrin is pretty self explanatory but we wanted both parts of us to make this little one whole," they added. "Now we're off to go cry again over how much we love him."
Along with the name announcement, Becca and Thomas, 31, also shared photos of the newborn. One image showed little Benny snuggled on his mom's chest, while he's pictured with a plaque detailing his birth details in another snap.
As the plaque reveals, the couple's baby boy arrived on at 7:45 a.m. weighing 8 pounds and measuring at 21 inches.
Becca first entered Bachelor Nation in 2018, when she vyed for the heart of Arie Luyendyk Jr. on the 22nd season of The Bachelor. When the racecar driver broke off their engagement to pursue now-wife Lauren Burnham after the finale, Becca was named the lead of The Bachelorette's 14th season. However, her second televised bid for love also ultimately fell through, and she parted ways with fiancé Garrett Yrigoyen after two years together.
The Minnesota native met Thomas, a former contestant on The Bachelorette's 17th season, in 2021 during their stint on Bachelor in Paradise. But despite leaving the beach single, the pair ultimately found paradise together.
In fact, she was the one who proposed first, getting down on one knee in last year, with Thomas following suit five months later. "What I loved most is out of all of—this sounds terrible, but out of all the engagements I've had—this was the first one that really felt like my own and just so special for us and for the relationship," Becca told E! News at the time. "It was just the most intimate moment."
She added, "I hope, if anything, other women can see this and be like, 'You know what, screw the norm. I'm gonna rock the boat and do it my way if that's what feels right."
