After a whirlwind romance that would give Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard a run for their money, The Bachelor’s Renee Oteri is pregnant with a baby boy!

She married Bracy Maynard just four months ago, having reconnected with her “best friend” after getting sent home by Juan Pablo Galavis on the ABC show.

“By far one of the most cherished moments imaginable for our family! We love you so much,” the pregnant Renee Oteri wrote on Instagram on Aug. 24.

“Aaaaaaand it’s a… BOY!!! A big thx to friends + family who took planes, trains + automobiles into town for our {post} Wedding Reception + Baby Gender Reveal!”

Renee, who competed for Juan Pablo‘s heart and made it to the hometown dates on The Bachelor, is just over three months along and due January 19.

“We’re so excited!” Renee told People magazine. “Bracy is already paranoid … he is always checking in and making sure I’m okay. He’s in dad mode.”


“I’m feeling good. We just had an appointment and this baby will not sit still! I keep calling her a she but we don’t know the sex yet. I can’t wait to find out.”

Her son Ben, 9, from a previous relationship, has been looking forward to the new addition. He was hoping for a boy, too, and his wish came true!

The 32-year-old Renee married Bracy, who she’s known for 22 years, on March 20, one month after the cute couple announced their engagement.

Congratulations to the happy couple, and soon-to-be family!
