It's a girl for Haley Palve and her husband Oula!

On Monday, the former "Bachelor" star and wife of ex-Pittsburgh Penguins player Oula Palve, shared the arrival of their daughter, Lovi Lavigne Palve, in a touching Instagram post.

She shared a carousel of her newborn swaddled in her bassinet, surrounded by custom name blocks and a sign sharing her date of birth and weight. "You’re the love we’ve always known was coming. Been soaking up every second of the newborn bubble bliss," the new mom penned in the caption.

"Baby and I got home from the hospital yesterday and we are doing great! She is pure joy and we couldn’t be more in love. Welcome to the world sunshine girl!" Palve added.

Fans shared their excitement and congratulated the new parents on their newest addition in the comments.

"Gorgeous baby girl! Congratulations mama and papa," fellow former "Bachelor" contestant Vanessa Grimaldi shared.

"What a journey. So happy for you both. You have a beautiful family. Congratulations!" a fan wrote.

"OMG! She is so perfect! That hair is amazing! I hope all is well with you mama, and welcome to motherhood. Also, love the name Lovi!" another commented.

"Congratulations! She is absolutely beautiful. Wishing you guys all the best in the new role of parenthood. It's a wild ride. Lean on your village and don't be afraid to ask for help," one Instagram user chimed in.

Back in November, the 31-year-old opened up to her Instagram followers about the challenging IVF process she endured to finally conceive her daughter, and the anxiety and anticipation that came with it.

"When we transferred our first little embryo I was anxious but full of hope," she recalled.

"Every little thing I felt worried me, and the first 10 weeks were mixed with a lot of different emotions."

As the weeks progressed, Palve found herself gradually transitioning from anxiety to a growing sense of joy and anticipation. She shared her thoughts, saying, "I’m not sure it has totally hit me yet that I get to have my baby that I've dreamt of for so long, and maybe I won’t believe it until I get to hold that dream in my arms in 25 weeks."
