Bob Guiney is a dad 15 years after he broke hearts as the Bachelor. The former ABC leading man, who welcomed his first child with wife Jessica Canyon last week, shared a sweet shot of his growing family to Instagram.
In the photo, which you can see below, the 47-year-old Bachelor star is kissing his wife as she holds their son in a hospital bed at Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellvue, Washington. Little Grayson is gazing lovingly at his happy parents in the adorable snap.
The new photo comes just a few days after Bob Guiney shared the news of his son’s birth to Instagram. Last week, Guiney posted a photo of his newborn son’s footprints and revealed that Grayson Robert Guiney was born on December 3 at 2:10 a.m. Guiney and Canyon’s son weighed in at 8 pounds, 3 ounces and 21 inches.
Bob Guiney, who starred on the Bachelor in 2003 during the ABC dating show’s fourth season, first revealed he and his wife were expecting a baby boy on Father’s Day, according to Extra. Guiney announced the happy news during an appearance on the Today show’s “Guys Tell All” segment in June.
“We found out we’re pregnant and we found out yesterday at my very first Father’s Day it’s a boy,” Bob revealed on the morning show segment.
Guiney also posted photos from the couple’s gender reveal party which showed the parents-to-be and their dog, Phoebe, all dressed in blue to deliver the big baby news.

Bachelor fans first met Bob Guiney on Trista Rehn’s season of the Bachelorette in 2003. He didn’t get Rehn’s final rose, but his popularity among fans landed him the lead role as the Bachelor, where he chose Estella Gardinier as his final pick.
