Roper revealed on Tuesday that she “accidentally” welcomed the couple’s baby in her master closet at home. Thankfully, their healthy baby boy was born weighing 7 lbs., 9 oz and is 20 inches long.

“I accidentally gave birth at home last night, in our master closet,” Jade wrote alongside a photo of her holding her newborn as paramedics and family members surrounded her.

“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,” the reality star continued.

“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,” she wrote.

The couple got engaged on the second season of ABC’s Bachelor in Paradise.

“We are over the moon for our little guy. He came into this world fast at 7 lbs., 9 oz and 20 in. long,” Tanner told PEOPLE. “Mom and baby boy are doing great. Emmy just met her little brother — she greeted him with a kiss on the head, so I guess that means she will allow us to bring him home! We are officially a family of four!”

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.
