“Welcome to the world, sweet Stella!” Mack, 24, wrote via Instagram nearly two weeks later on January 13. “Stella Rhea Edwards came on her own time and surprised us New Year’s Day! What a way to start our year! We are so in love with her already.”
Several fans took to the comments to congratulate the family on their new addition. “Congrats, Mackenzie! You and Ryan deserve nothing but to be blessed with this precious little girl,” one fan wrote with the hashtag #babystella. “Don’t they look so content and complete?” a second user responded with several heart-eye emojis. “Bless her heart with THREE older brothers,” another added with a red heart. “Love the name!!!” a fourth follower wrote. “Congrats you two.”
Stella’s precious name comes from the Latin word meaning “star,” while her middle name, Rhea, originates from the Greek word for “flowing stream.” According to Ryan’s father, Larry Edwards, the middle name was a family moniker from Ryan’s mother’s side, he told The Sun.
“We’re so excited. She looks like Mackenzie!” the proud grandpa gushed at the time. “She’s going to be a daddy’s girl.”
The tiny tot is sure to be the star of the family as the only daughter in the party of six. Ryan, 33, shares his eldest son, Bentley, with his ex-fiancée Maci Bookout McKinney, while Mackenzie shares her son Hudson with ex-husband Zachary Stephens. The couple welcomed their first child together, a baby boy named Jagger, in October 2018. Soon after the birth of their son, they were thrilled to share they were adding another into the mix. On a photo of a sonogram posted in July 2019, Mack wrote, “Baby Girl Edwards is coming in January!”
According to Stella’s granddad, she’s already a strong-willed lady and chose to arrive on her own terms. “It was unexpected. One push and she was here!” he shared with The Sun. Keep scrolling to see the cutest pictures of Stella.
