While the supposed baby news of Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom has not actually been addressed by the couple, there’s no doubt about this one:
Melissa Rycroft is pregnant!
“It was a shock. We weren’t even trying,” the former Bachelor winner, who married insurance agent Tye Strickland in December, tells Us Weekly.
“It’s the most wonderful surprise in the world. It’s such a blessing.”
Blessed she may be, but the co-host of ABC’s Bachelor Pad says starting a family was the last thing on her mind. Someone forgot to tell Tye that.
Tye and Melissa Rycroft Strickland are starting a family!
“He wanted to have kids right away, and I was laughing at him going, ‘No, not ready!'” Melissa Rycroft said. “He’s actually cried more than I have.”
Rycroft says that her solid relationship with her man has helped her stay calm: “Tye is caring, he’s funny. He’s going to be a great dad.”
Interestingly, she says she’s hoping for a boy, while Tye wants a girl. Either way, “We’re going to find out as soon as we can,” she says.
Melissa, who received the final rose from Jason Mesnick during the 2009 season of The Bachelor, only to have him break up with her for Molly Malaney (who he later married), is “eating everything in sight” and may “gain 90 pounds.”
She’d still look great. Congratulations, Melissa and Tye!
