The former Trista Rehn and her husband, Ryan Sutter, of The Bachelorette are expecting their first child, the couple tells People Magazine.

“We are so happy after two years of trying,” Trista Sutter said.

Ryan, 32, a Colorado firefighter, got the news from Trista, 34, a purse designer, when he flew back to Denver on December 18 after participating in a mountain expedition in Argentina.

“He was completely windburned and his lips were dry,” Trista recalls. “We had a three-hour drive back to our home from the airport and I couldn’t wait to tell him, so I pulled him aside to a quiet part of the baggage claim area and told him there.”

“I am happy to be able to finally be a dad,” Ryan said.

Who can blame him. Kevin Federline knows the feeling many times over.

The couple won’t know the gender of their child until the summer. Trista is currently 14 weeks along.

“I’ve had horrendous morning sickness,” she admits, “but they say it’s a sign of a healthy pregnancy.”

The couple met while taping The Bachelorette in 2002 and got married in a 2003 special on ABC – obviously faring a lot better since their reality TV days than, say, Lorenzo Borghese (though he is now with Sadie Murray).

Trista joins the pregnant Keri Russell and Amanda Peet on T.H. Gossip’s Not-Quite-A-List Celebrity Baby Patrol.
