We’d be lying if we said we didn’t start collectively ovulating the second we saw the first picture of Jason Mesnick and Molly Mesnick’s darling daughter Riley on People April 17. Born on March 14 in Seattle, Riley Anne Mesnick just started smiling — which was perfect timing for the shoot.
“Riley has totally taken over this house,” Molly spills of her new three’s company life. “She has clothes and toys and gadgets literally everywhere.” Although Jason has an eight-year-old son, Ty, from his first marriage, Riley is Bachelor Season 13 winner Molly’s first baby, so it’s only natural that she’s seen some bigger life changes than she could even imagine.
In his second stint as dad, Jason has found a new thing to love about fatherhood. “I love watching Molly with her — that awe of loving someone so much,” the former Bachelor says of his beautiful wife.
But it’s not all longing gazes and seriousness in the Mesnick household. Just as we saw their fun-loving interactions on the ABC show, they’ve continued the theme in real life and are able to reflect on their unusual union. “Jason got me a baby book and one of the pages is, ‘How Mommy and Daddy Met,’” Molly laughs. “That will be an interesting conversation, to say the least!”
We’d love to be an alphabet block on the floor for that talk...
