Despite recently having what she called a “pretty big scare,” Ali Fedotowsky-Manno is now enjoying a healthy and happy pregnancy with baby number two. And that’s not the only good news the former Bachelorette and her husband, Kevin Manno, are celebrating — they’ve just revealed they’ll be welcoming a little boy.
“Kevin and I would’ve been totally thrilled with either a girl or a boy, but I have to say, we were pretty overwhelmed with emotion and joy when we found out we were having a little boy,” Fedotowsky-Manno wrote on her blog, AliLuvs.com. She admitted that she’s been eager to share the news — which the couple found out at 11 weeks — for a while, but simply didn’t get around to planning the photo shoot she wanted for the reveal.
The photos, now here, were worth the wait: In them, the happy parents-to-be, along with their 19-month-old daughter, Molly, and their dog, Owen, sit in front of giant blue letter balloons that read “BABY.”
So far, the family doesn’t have a name picked out for their little boy, and Fedotowsky-Manno said that she’s stumped, even turning to fans for their suggestions. “I’d love it to be a two-syllable name. And I’d like for the name we give him to be the name he goes by,” she said, explaining that she doesn’t want him to end up with a name that gets shortened and nicknamed like hers (her full name is Alexandra).
Despite being happy about the news that a little boy was on the way, Fedotowsky-Manno admitted that it was still somewhat bittersweet. “I know this sounds crazy, but I was almost a little sad to find out the results,” she wrote. “Just because either way, Molly would never know what it’s like to have a sister or never know what it’s like to have a brother. I guess never say never though, right?”
So is that a hint that she wants to expand their family in the future? “Unless there is an ‘uh-oh’ down the road, we are only having two,” she quipped.
What do you think the Fedotowsky-Manno family should name their little boy? Let us know @BritandCo!
