Baby joy! Congrats are in store for ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘Bachelor In Paradise’ alum Ashley Salter, as she’s expecting her first baby with fiance Austin Bannen after failing to find love on TV with Chris Soules.
Great news! Reality star Ashley Salter, 25, has finally found her happily ever after with a fiance and a baby on the way already! The pretty blonde hairdresser got nicknamed the “Onion Girl” during Chris Soules‘ season 19 of The Bachelor, where she came across as more than just a little bit cray cray. Now a source close to Ashley has confirmed she definitely has a baby board with her college sweetheart Austin Brannen.
“Ashley is far along — she’s showing,” the source told Us. Apparently she was already sporting a noticeable bump when she attended the wedding of Bachelor in Paradise alums Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert where they tied the knot in Jan. 24. The beautiful ceremony was taped for The Bachelor‘s 20th anniversary special, set to air on the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day on Feb. 14.

It seems like as soon as Ashley got her heart broken by not one but two men — Nick Peterson and Dan Cox — on Bachelor in Paradise season 2, she turned right around and proved that she could easily move on by announcing her engagement to Austin on Sept. 12. She fell back in love and started dating her college honey again in June 2015 after the show’s taping wrapped. She posted a photo of her new engagement ring to her Instagram holding a bouquet of a dozen red roses noting, “@agbrannen 12 is better than 1 #roses,” making sure to get in a clever little dig at the Bachelor’s handing out of a final rose to the chosen lady.
