Do you believe everything happens for a reason? There was a time when Jason Mesnick was The Most Hated Bachelor for dumping Melissa Rycroft and asking out his Bachelor 13 runner-up Molly Malaney. Now Jason and Molly are happily married and parents to their adorable daughter Riley, born in March 2013.

But they aren't the only ones who welcomed Miss Riley. Jason has an 8-year-old son, Ty, from his previous marriage. Ty had a cameo on DeAnna Pappas's season of The Bachelorette and met both Molly and Melissa on The Bachelor. And he seems more than OK with being a big brother.

When Riley was born, Jason told People, “Ty has been asking for a sibling for so long. He was here earlier holding her and kissing her and it was really, really cute. We’re so happy.” Speaking of happy, we dare you not to smile at this photo of bright-eyed Riley with her loving big bro watching over her. As Jason put it when sharing the pic, "How cute are these two!" Too cute!

Meanwhile, Melissa is happily married with her own baby girl, Ava Grace, and she went on to do two seasons of Dancing With the Stars, winning the All-Stars season that aired last fall.

So even though Jason and Molly now talk a lot about the fake parts of reality TV (and there’s a lot to say on that subject) we know they were meant to meet on this crazy rose-giving show. How else could they make this cute photo happen?
