"What an exciting, love filled couple days! So happy to finally bring home the newest lil member of our family! Ryan Ava Erhard Rosenberg!" she tweeted on Thursday, confirming their daughter's name.

The following day, Haylie also tweeted her love for her baby girl, writing: "I honestly didn't know I could love this hard! Whole new level. Ryan has me on lock! Haha."
