As we prepare for Becca Kufrin’s season of The Bachelorette, another Bachelor Nation member and former star of the reality franchise, Jillian Harris, has just revealed that she’s expecting baby #2.
Harris first appeared on the 13th season of The Bachelor, where she vied for the heart of Jason Mesnick, finishing as the second runner-up. Then in 2009, she was cast as the fifth Bachelorette and ended her season engaged to Ed Swiderski. However, the two broke up the following year.
These days, the reality TV star who has since appeared on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and Love It or List It Too is engaged to Justin Pasutto, father of their 20-month-old son Leo George. Now, the family has announced that another little one is on the way.
“Baby #2!!!!! 👶🏼♥️🐶💑👶🏼♥️,” Harris captioned a pic of herself and Pasutto who are relaxing on a bed with their pup and adorable Leo who is standing in the middle of the group wearing a shirt that reads “big bro.”
“Beyond grateful, excited and FULL of love for this next stage of our lives!” the soon-to-be mother of two continued. “I’ve been so excited to tell you guys EVERYTHING… the last 3 months have been… interesting… obviously exciting but SO sick and exhaustion I never knew was possible.”
She also used the post to express gratitude for her fiancé, saying, “Thank you @justinpasutto for being SO patient with me, no more freshly cooked meals, 7pm bedtimes for mama, a messy house, piled up laundry, crabby, and unshaven legs… lol I’ve been a MESS but feeling so much better these days!!!!”
She then let fans in on the fact that she’d be keeping them updated on her pregnancy via her blog and Youtube channel before ending with, “Thank you ALL already for the love, support and ADVICE!!! We feel so lucky to have you all and be able to share this with you!!!!”
