Is it just us, or does Ava Strickland get cuter and cuter as the days go on? This angelic bundle of joy graced us with her presence when she popped out of Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft Strickland's lady parts on February 16, 2011, and she's been stealing our hearts with her cherubic cheeks ever since.
Ava might just be the cutest child in Hollywood (in a box to the left, Blue Ivy), and clearly she gets her good looks from Melissa and her hunky hubby, Tye Strickland. Check out this picture of Ty and his baby gal enjoying some father-daughter time, which Melissa captioned "Must be a daddy-daughter gadget date night...."
This. Is. The. Cutest! And, not gonna lie — we love Ty in that baggy grey man tank. By the way, it might interest y'all to know that Melissa didn't meet her man in Bachelor Mansion. She and Tye met before she was cast on The Bachelor, and they re-connected after Melissa was proposed to by Jason Mesnick — only to be rejected so he could marry runner-up Molly Malaney.
Luckily, Tye turned out to be more than a rebound, and he and Melissa got hitched on December 12, 2009, in Mexico! Flash forward two years and they're the proud parents of Baby Ava. Sob, how time flies when you're having fun and huffing rose petals!
