The Bachelorette’s Desirée Hartsock and Chris Siegfried Just Welcomed Their First Baby, and His Name Is Adorable
Former Bachelorette Desirée Hartsock (who now goes by Desirée Siegfried) had an inkling on her one-year anniversary that she was pregnant, so she took a test while in Hawaii, and voila, she was right. She revealed in August that she was having a baby boy, and it’s been all preparation since then. Now, all the waiting has surely been worth it, as Desirée and her hubby, Chris Siegfried, just welcomed their first baby into the world.
Desirée and Chris, who both appeared on season nine of The Bachelorette, welcomed little Asher Wrigley Siegfried into the family on Wednesday, October 19. Coming in at eight pounds and 20.5 inches, he was “happy, healthy and strong!”

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!
