Former "Bachelorette" starsTrista
are on the cover of Life Style this week with their brand new bundle of baby joy:Blakesley Grace Sutter
, born on April 3.
Where'd they get that name? Read on.L
: When Max was born, you had to be put under general anesthesia to have an emergency C-section. How were things different this time around?Trista
: "This birth was so much easier. Blakesley was born three weeks early, and I did have another C-section, but I didn’t need general anesthesia. I just walked into the hospital and put my gown on, and then my doctor came in and said, 'Okay, it’s time.' I didn’t know you could just walk into the delivery room, because the last time, I was wheeled in on a hospital bed."L
: How did you come up with the name Blakesley?Trista
: "It’s a family name. Ryan really loved the name Grace. At first we were calling her Gracie, but then we decided to stick with Blakesley."L
: You and Ryan are the only couple from the Bachelor and Bachelorette shows to make it to the altar and start a family. What’s your secret?Trista
: "You know, it’s so hard to say. I will acknowledge that it’s difficult. You meet under these crazy circumstances, and then you get separated for three months, which was super hard. And I think some people just think they’re ready and then when they see the person again, they realize those feelings just aren’t there. I didn’t set out to be the only Bachelorette to get married. I just feel lucky and blessed that my life turned out this way."
