The boy has a name! Jade (Roper) and Tanner Tolbert finally revealed the name of their second child together, several days after he was born in their master bedroom closet in a scary emergency birth. The Bachelor alums announced this week that their son was born on Monday night, but they have been holding off on sharing the name.

  • Meet Brooks Easton Tolbert!

    He is just the cutest little thing, and we love the name! We think it goes really nicely with big sister Emerson "Emmy" Avery, who will turn 2 later this month.

    Jade shared in the comments that they "were having such a hard time deciding" that they "got multiple blankets with different names." And of course Chris Harrison chimed in that he really thought he'd get this one, and that he's "still holding out for a Harrison." Sorry, Chris!

  • Earlier this week, Jade shared that she "accidentally" gave birth in her closet. 

    She shared with her fans:

    "I accidentally gave birth at home last night, in our master closet. I’ve been still processing the shock of this all, as this was not all at what I had planned, but I am so so thankful for each person who helped bring our son into the world safely. I’ll share my whole birth story soon, but long story short, my waters broke and 75 minutes later I gave birth to our healthy baby boy while clutching a bench in our closet. It was one of the scariest moments of my life because I felt so out of control, but Tanner, Tanner’s mom, my mom and the medics and firefighters kept me going when I felt like the world was caving in on me and my unborn baby. 
    I was going to share the happy, cute Instagrammable pics first, but this felt right to me. So incredibly grateful for the support system we had and for this beautiful boy I get to hold in my arms."
  • Jade opened up to People more about the birth, and how her recovery is going.

    She explained, "Because it was such a fast labor and my body went through so much in such little time, my recovery has been a little bit harder than it was with Emmy, but we're just relaxing and just bonding with our baby."

    "I'm really grateful," she continued. "I mentally kind of lost it at one point. But luckily, I had a really great team behind me. They were my strength in the moment. And it just feels so right to have our son here. It feels like he’s been a part of our family forever."

  • Congrats again to Jade, Tanner, and Emmy on the arrival of baby Brooks!
