The "Bachelorette" baby boom continues: Desiree Hartsock is pregnant!
Hartsock, who met husband Chris Siegfried while starring on the show's ninth season in 2013, announced the happy news via an Instagram post on Wednesday.
“We have a bun in the oven and it's not the warm pastry kind!” Desiree captioned the photo, which shows her and Siegfried pointing out Hartsock’s noticeable baby bump. “We are beyond excited to share that we have a little one on the way!! A new chapter we are both looking forward to.”
On his own Instagram account, Siegfried posted a photo of him and his wife sipping from “Baby Daddy” and “Baby Mama” mugs, respectively.
“I can’t tell you all how excited I am and we are to be having a little Siegfried!” he captioned the photo. “No matter what we have … we are so happy!”
The couple, who married in January 2015, celebrated their first anniversary with a trip to Maui — and a positive pregnancy test!
“I kind of knew, like, ‘You know something, I think I’m pregnant,'” Hartsock told Us Weekly. “We were in Hawaii, when we went for our one-year anniversary. That’s when we took a test and found out!”
The first-time parents will welcome their baby in October.
Hartsock is just one of many former "Bachelorette" stars who are currently pregnant. Season 5’s Jillian Harris is expecting her first baby with boyfriend Justin Pasutto in September, while Season 6 star Ali Fedotowsky is currently seven months pregnant with her first baby with her TV host fiancé Kevin Manno. Season 8’s Bachelorette, Emily Maynard, is also pregnant. She is expecting her third child — and second with husband Tyler Johnson — in September.
