A rep confirms that Trista Sutter, 34, gave birth to a boy, Maxwell Alston Sutter, on July 26th. Trista tells Us magazine, “He’s perfect and beautiful, and everyone’s doing great.”
Little Maxwell (5 pounds, 3 ounces and 18 inches long) is the first child for the Sutters, who met on the first season of ABC’s The Bachelorette and were married on television in December of 2003. The birth took place at 8:50 p.m. local time at the Vail Valley Medical Center in Vail, Colorado, where the Sutters reside.
Trista recently told Us magazine of her pending motherhood, “It took us a long time to get pregnant so it makes it that much sweeter. It’s my dream to be a mom.”
Trista also revealed that the couple did not want to know the baby’s gender before the birth. “I’m a huge planner,” she said, “but even more so I’m a fan of surprises, so my love of surprises outweighed it. For the first one for us, we just want a healthy baby.”
