Oh baby -- one of our favorite Bachelor alums had some very happy news to share this morning. Melissa Rycroft is pregnant with her second child with husband Tye Strickland! She spilled the beans on Good Morning America, letting us all know that her 2-year-old daughter, Ava, is going to be a big sister sometime this spring.
And while we don't know any more major details yet, like whether she's expecting a baby boy or girl, we couldn't be happier for Melissa -- because adding another child into the mix is something she's been talking about for quite some time.
But even though now is the perfect time for her to expand her family, since Ava is well into the toddler phase and Dancing With the Stars is long over -- Melissa already realizes that having a new baby around will be a bit of an adjustment, to say the least.
Apparently Ava isn't totally on board with the idea of having a sibling -- not that you can really blame the kid. Melissa admits that she's spoiled, so it might be a bit of a shock once her famous mommy has to devote some of her time to taking care of someone other than her. (Baby number two always has to swoop and and ruin the fun.)
Melissa should be able to handle the shift from being a mom of one to a mom of two like a pro though -- and it's just so wonderful to see her get the happy ending she deserves, considering what a bumpy ride she had on The Bachelor. Ugh. As awful as it was to see her get blindsided and dumped by Jason Mesnick -- it just may have been the best thing that ever happened to her. She obviously found the right guy, and now she's going to have two beautiful children and a perfect little family and maybe a white picket fence and a dog will be next?
Anyhoo, congrats to Melissa and Tye!
Can you offer any tips for how to prepare your first child for the birth of your second?
