The Bachelor's Snezana and Sam Wood have welcomed their fourth child, another gorgeous baby girl.
Completely besotted by their bundle of joy, the loving parents confirmed the news on Instagram and revealed that they named her Harper Jones Wood.
Sam posted a slew of pictures of the family bonding with the new bub at the hospital. In his caption he wrote a lengthy record of their journey over the past five days.
"So here's a story from the last 5 days…….On Wednesday May 4th, one month early we welcomed Harper Jones Wood to the world," he began.

"30 minutes after this photo was taken. Snez became sick. Really sick and before we knew it Harper was off to the special care unit and Mum was into ICU.
"Of course in true Snez Mum fashion her only thoughts were for her little baby and it was breaking her heart that she couldn't hold her.
"After finding an infection that both Snez and Harper had picked up and some incredible care from the nurses and doctors they were reunited yesterday and both doing well."
He went on to gush about his wife, writing: "@snezanawood you really are the strongest and most beautiful person I know and like you, thank god the force is strong in little Harper."
Snezana described the past five days as a "roller coaster", writing: "Welcome little Harper Jones Wood. What a roller coaster it has been, you are our world. Born 4th May 2022."

Snezana announced she was expecting her fourth child by sharing two stunning photos of her burgeoning bump in November 2021.
"❤️Filled with joy to share that we are expecting another little girl. Baby number 4 ❤️,"the season three Bachelor winner captioned the post.
The news came as a surprise to fans who assumed Sam and Snez were finished growing their family.
However, keen followers knew they were open to having more kids even though they were busy with their three children.

"We've definitely got our hands full, but we'd never say never," Sam told Now To Love in 2020, adding that seeing their youngest daughter grow up got him feeling all "clucky".
"I miss that really little baby that's really depending on you. There's something so sweet about it."
Shortly after their Bachelor finale, Snez and Eve, her daughter from a previous relationship, relocated to Sam's hometown of Melbourne and the three became an official family.
The couple then welcomed daughter Willow Wendy, in 2017, and she was a significant milestone for the dating franchise as she marked Australia's first Bachie baby.
Sam and Snez married in 2018 and their family became five when third daughter Charlie Lane was born in 2019.
It's no secret Sam is a deeply devoted dad to all his girls, and in 2019 he told Now To Love that even though having a large family in the public eye can be chaotic, it's totally worth it.
"I've just got this house full of girls, nothing is gonna change. It's just me and the dog representing the boys. But you know what? It's such a nice place to come home," he said.
