deanna pappasA true happy ending is rare in the world of reality TV dating shows, but one former star has bucked those odds. After her very public search for love on both The Bachelor and then The Bachelorette, DeAnna Pappas Stagliano has everything she always dreamed of and is showing it all off. She shared a new, absolutely adorable pic of her baby girl.

 

What a cutie, huh? DeAnna certainly recognizes what a jewel she has. She posted the photo along with, "This will make your day a little better...#addisonmarie #babystag #bigsmiles."

Born on February 6, it's clear that Addision Marie is the real star of that house. DeAnna couldn't be more proud. She has certainly come a long way since she was looking for love on TV. A finalist on Brad Womack's season of The Bachelor, DeAnna and the other finalist were rejected by him in the finale. She was crushed and fans were furious.

She didn't have much better luck as The Bachelorette. Her romance with winner Jesse Csincsak only lasted a few months after the show ended. However, DeAnna finally found real love with Stephen Stagliano, whose brother Micheal was on season 5 of The Bachelorette. Crazy how it all worked out. But we couldn't be happier for her sweet little family.

What other former Bachelor and Bachelorette stars have had fairytale endings like DeAnna?
