It’s (another) girl for Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson!
The married Big Brother 19 stars welcomed their third child together on Saturday, July 15, according to Us Weekly. This is the third daughter for Jessica and Cody, who are also parents to three-year-old Maverick, and two-year-old Carter. (Cody is also the father of Paisley from a previous relationship.)
The newest member of the family was born early, coming via C-section during Jessica’s 36th week of pregnancy. Us Weekly reports that the baby was healthy, weighing in at 6 lbs., 10 oz.
The couple named her Atlas Ruby.

“From the second we met, we’ve always said we wanted a big family,” Jessica and Cody told the magazine. “On Saturday morning, we were fortunate enough to add another healthy baby girl to that dream. Atlas Ruby Nickson, welcome to the big world, baby. We’re so excited to see what you make of this life God has gifted you!”
As fans of the couple may recall, Cody and Jessica met in 2017 during Season 19 of ‘Big Brother’ and they went on to win The Amazing Race in 2018. That same year, the two tied the knot.
Jessica and Cody shared the news that they were expecting their third child back in February. At the the time of the announcement, the couple was using the Instagram handle of @BabyNickson, but in May, Jessica announced the name chosen for the baby by changing the Instagram handle to @AtlasNickson.

A photo of Atlas was posted to the account on Sunday, along with the caption, “Hi everyone.”
Back in June, Cody expressed his appreciation to Jessica for helping him to be a good father.
“I couldn’t and wouldn’t be as good of a dad as I try to be without my lovely wife, who is a phenomenal mother and teaches me how to be a successful girl dad,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’m not just saying this… 4 daughters, and I would be clueless on how to understand and approach their wants and needs without her. Thank you @thejessicanickson for making my job easier, for being the best partner in raising our kids right… we love you!
“Also thanks for being pregnant 3 years in a row, you quite literally carry this family, not me. And this goes to all the mothers out there who make fathers great at being dads.”

I don’t understand why a JUST BORN BABY would need her own Instagram account. She has no say in this, what if she decided in her teens that “Screw this, I don’t want to have social media anymore.” Like give your children THE RIGHT TO DECIDE whether they want to be plastered all over social media or not. Not to mention all the internet creeps.
3 under 3, god bless her.
Pregnant 3 years in a row. Sounds like a nightmare.
Cody’s desperate to have a boy so gives his daughters boy names. Can’t wait to hear when Jessica is pregnant with the next girl!
Wonder how they came up with that name?
Gross. He’s set to raise another anti-vaxxer.
with homophobic and racist views.
Super cute baby though.
Named after “Atlas Shrugged” I suspect.
