Baby Joy! Melissa Rycroft is pregnant with her third baby in just four years! The former Bachelor contestant and Dancing With The Stars winner broke the news in an adorable Instgagram announcement with her family.
Melissa Rycroft, 32, is expecting another bundle of joy with husband Tye Strickland! The Good Morning America correspondent is already mother to daughter Ava Grace, 3, and son Beckett Thomas, 18 months. When their new arrival comes, she’s going to have three kids aged four and under, what a handful that will be, but Melissa obviously thrives at being an amazing mom!
In the adorable Instagram announcement on Nov. 4, Melissa is already wearing a comfy, loose maternity top. She’s holding Beckett who is carrying the sign “Big Brother” in blue letters, while Tye holds up daughter Ava on her shoulders, who covers her face with a “And then there were five” sign. Aw, what an adorable family!
The DWTS: All Stars champ says that this next child will round out their family. “This is definitely the last one…probably” Melissa captioned the photo, which included the hashtag messages of #partyoffice, #babyonboard, and our favorite #maybethisonewilllooklikeme, which references how her two kids have blue eyes and blond hair that her husband has, while Melissa is a brown-eyed brunette.
Melissa told HollywoodLife.com back in July, 2013 that “Tye and I have made no secret that we definitely want a big family,” and boy is she getting her wish! At the time she said “Ava’s getting old enough now and I’m definitely getting the baby itch, so I think it’s safe to say we’re in planning mode and we’re working on it.” They worked pretty darn fast because by Oct. 2013, Melissa announced she was pregnant with the couple’s second child! Now she has baby number three on the way, so it looks like she’s getting the big family she dreamed of!
