Trista and Ryan Sutter, who found love on ABC's "The Bachelorette," welcomed their first child Thursday.

A representative for the Vail, Colo., couple confirmed exclusively to Usmagazine.com that Trista Sutter gave birth to Maxwell Alston Sutter on Thursday at Vail Valley Medical Center.

He weighed in at 5 pounds, 3 ounces.

Sutter told the magazine, "He's perfect and beautiful, and everyone's doing great." She had previously said that it had taken a long time to conceive, so the pregnancy was "that much sweeter."

The Sutters met on the first season of "The Bachelorette," and were married during a two-hour ABC special in December 2003.
