Jesse Palmer just added another title to his resume, and it’s the most important one of all: Dad.
Yes, Jesse’s wife, Emely Fardo Palmer recently gave birth to their first child, and they couldn’t be happier that baby Palmer has finally made her arrival.
The Bachelor franchise host proudly shared the news on social media and revealed the beautiful name they chose for her.
Emely and Jesse shared the pregnancy news in October 2023 and revealed the gender in an Instagram post.
The image showed the couple barefoot on the beach as Jesse kissed the top of Emely’s head with their hands resting on her belly to showcase her baby bump.
“We’ve been keeping a secret…our family is growing and our hearts are so full!” wrote Emely. “This is a dream come true for us and we’re so thrilled to be welcoming our baby girl in January 2024 🎀💕.”
Emely and Jesse secretly eloped in June 2020 during the height of the pandemic, but they didn’t publicly share the news until a year later.
The couple married again in 2022 during a lavish ceremony in Provence, France, with their immediate families in attendance.
