Due any day now, The Bachelor‘s Melissa Rycroft can’t wait to see her family’s newest addition: “I am so ready to meet my little girl!”
Melissa Rycroft and her husband, Tye Strickland are getting everything ready for the arrival of their little princess! But the baby girl almost showed up a bit too soon! “We had our first ‘is this or isn’t it’ moment, and I realized that Tye is not going to remain calm when the moment does come,” Melissa, 27, reveals to Ok! magazine. Turns out a false alarm is good practice!
The happy couple have finished designing their baby girl’s room, which is surrounded in pink, cream and brown tones and decked out with tons of fluffy animals! “I tried to put in as many stuffed animals as I could,” Melissa says. “I didn’t want it to feel too fancy.” What baby won’t love soft and adorable bears and bunnies scattered all over their room? And she’s not only adding last minute touches to her baby’s nursery, but Melissa is brushing up on her new mommy skills by reading books and following the guidelines on her iPhone app, “What to expect when you’re expecting.”
And although she’s due very very soon, the former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader is all set to celebrate the Super Bowl at two different parties! “I haven’t been able to travel or work for the past two months, so it’s exciting for me,” Melissa explains, “and then I want to get this motherhood thing started!”
