It’s a joyous time for former Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas Stagliano and husband Stephen Stagliano! Deanna may have experienced some rough patches during her time on reality TV — she was rejected by Brad Womack on The Bachelor and her engagement with Jesse Csincsak was cut short after The Bachelorette – but now she’s happily married to Stephen with a baby on the way. We’re overjoyed for her! Read on for all the details.
DeAnna Pappas Stagliano & Stephen Stagliano’s Baby Joy
“We are so very excited!” DeAnna told People. “We had been trying for almost a year; we wanted this so badly.”
Adding to the excitement, DeAnna also shared her due date! “The baby is due Feb. 8 and Stephen’s birthday is Feb. 4. I told him all he’s getting for his birthday this year is a baby!” she said to People.
It seems like Valentine’s Day in the Stagliano home will have an extra amount of love. How exciting!
DeAnna’s Pregnancy Excitement
The former reality star is overjoyed about her and Stephen’s new addition. “We are so thrilled to finally have the news out! Baby on the way!!!!” DeAnna tweeted, along with the first picture of her bump.
“I kind of wanted [the gender] to be a surprise, but Stephen wants to be prepared,” she explains to People. She also said that she had a little nausea during her first trimester, but is now “feeling great!” Based off her bump picture, DeAnna looks gorgeous and she’s glowing — she’s bound to be a great mom!
DeAnna and Stephen tied the knot in Oct. 2011 in a Southern wedding in Georgia after getting engaged in May 2010. The couple met through Stephen’s twin brother, Michael Stagliano, who starred on Season 5 of The Bachelorette with Jillian Harris. It’s a match made in reality TV heaven!
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Are you excited that DeAnna is going to be a mom?
