Love Is Blind 's Mark Cuevas and Fiancée Aubrey Rainey Welcome Their First Baby

Mark Cuevas is officially a dad.

The Love Is Blind star's fiancée Aubrey Rainey gave birth to their first baby, a boy, on Saturday, April 24.

"Welcome Home Ace Anthony Cuevas," Mark wrote on Instagram on Sunday, April 25. "Blessed is an understatement. After 19 hours of labor Aubrey delivered our beautiful baby boy and words cannot describe all the emotions we've been feeling for the past 24 hrs. He's safe, healthy and has his mother's smile!"

Mark continued, "Thank you for everyone that wished us well going in and excited for this next chapter of our life and being a Dad," adding a blue heart emoji.

Aubrey wrote on her own page, "Ace Anthony Cuevas [black heart emoji]...Baby boy made his way on 4/24/2021 at 3:33pm weighing 6lb 10 oz. Truly a moment where time stood still. This healthy boy is the biggest blessing we could've ever asked for! So excited to be your mommy."

Mark got engaged to Jessica Batten on the Netflix reality show, which premiered in 2020. She left him at the altar at the end of the show, citing the 10-year age difference as the reason the relationship didn't work out. Afterwards, he entered into a brief romance with a second co-star, Lauren "LC" Chamblin, before he and Aubrey began a relationship last year. In October, they revealed that she was pregnant with their first child.

"I'm so excited to be a dad—seriously one of the proudest moments of my life," Mark told E! News at the time. "I'm going to be a protective dad, but also a dad that will always support my child in any endeavor."

The couple also revealed the news to fans with a photoshoot they posted on Instagram, which showed Aubrey posing with their baby's sonogram and Mark in a hat that read "Dad."

Aubrey wrote on Instagram, "Blessed beyond measure & cannot wait to meet our little pumpkin."

The following month, Mark and Aubrey announced they were welcoming a boy on Instagram.

"I love this stuff, guys," Mark teased in the video, which showed the couple on a roof shooting off fireworks in celebration. "Aubrey's very impatient...actually we both are. We already know the gender but we decided to do this for everyone and share it with the world."

The very same day they shared their baby's sex, the Love Is Blind alum proposed to Aubrey at the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. In fact, he made sure that Aubrey was unaware of the proposal by disguising it as part of their sex reveal plans.

"I set up with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to light up their building the color of the gender," he explained to People, "disguising the proposal as a gender reveal."

Hopefully, the couple's little one has his dad's knack for adorable surprises.
