The Brenchel baby has arrived!

Big Brother and Amazing Race alums Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly have welcomed their first child, a daughter, they announced via Twitter Friday.

“Brendon & I are officially parents! Omg thank you for all the prayers and well wishes,” Reilly, 31, wrote. “It was long hard and we did it all natural.”

The reality TV couple, who married in 2012announced the pregnancy exclusively to PEOPLE in September. In March, Villegas, 36, and Reilly celebrated with a baby shower and revealed that they were expecting a baby girl.

At the time, Reilly shared that they didn’t have a name picked out for their daughter quite yet — but she didn’t want it to be a common one.

“Brendon thinks I’m gonna have a dream in the middle of the night that is gonna magically tell me the name,” she joked, before adding, “I really want a unique name, so anything that’s on-trend.”

Villegas had different ideas, however: “What’s cool today may not be cool in 20 years, and guess what? Our daughter has to deal with this name for the rest of her life,” he said.
