Bachelorette Success Story Desirée Harsock + Chris Siegfried Are Expecting a Baby
There’s a celebrity baby boom happening in Hollywood right now (we’re lookin’ at you, Chrissy Teigen, Behati Prinsloo and Olivia Wilde) and the stars of reality TV aren’t exempt from the excitement. There’s big news in the Bachelorette universe, as Desirée Hartsock and her hubby Chris Siegfried are expecting their first baby this fall!
Revealing the big news to Us Weekly, Desirée (who’s now going by Siegfried, according to her Instagram account) admits she had an inkling. “I kind of knew, like, ‘You know something, I think I’m pregnant…We were in Hawaii, when we went for our one-year anniversary. That’s when we took a test and found out!” A pregnancy discovery in Hawaii? This sounds like it could be an episode of the Bachelorette (granted, a Where Are They Now version or something). Totally serendipitous and totally exciting!
But 30-year-old Desirée claims it’s not all fun and games. In fact, it’s a lot of running out to satisfy those picky pregnancy cravings — at least for Chris. “Each day is something new,” Desirée says. “Like one day I’m like, ‘Babe, I really need Italian.’ And then the next, it’s Mexican and the next it’s dessert for dinner. He’s just so supportive and if I’m craving ice cream, he’s like, ‘OK, let’s go get it!’” Super sweet!
Congratulations, Desirée and Chris!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
