In November, the "Dancing With the Stars" winner took to Instagram to reveal that she and Strickland were expecting baby No. 3.

Throughout her pregnancy journey, Rycroft shared several photos documenting her growing bump, taking fans along for the ride.

Kisses for the baby 💋

Rycroft appeared on the 13th season of "The Bachelor." She was briefly engaged to "Bachelor" Jason Mesnick, who ultimately wed the season's runner-up, Molly Malaney. Shortly after, Rycroft became engaged to Strickland and they married within six months.

However, Rycroft isn't the only "Bachelor" alum with baby news these days. Both Ali Fedotowsky — who appeared on both "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" — and Catherine Giudici, who found love with now-husband Sean Lowe, have their own buns in the oven. The two women are each due in early July.
