Not surprisingly, Jen Schefft didn’t find love on installments ofÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelor orÂ The Bachelorette, but she’s happily married now to Chicago businessman, Joe Waterman, and the newlyweds are expecting a baby. Schefft, who married Waterman in May of 2009, a year after meeting him on a blind date, has announced that she’s pregnant. The couple will welcome their new son or daughter this November.
“I was shocked. I thought it would take more time,” Schefft says about the pregnancy news. “I took three tests because I didn’t believe it was true!” Once she confirmed that it was true,Â The Bachelor andÂ The Bachelorette starÂ rushed to share the good news with her husband. “I put the tests in a Ziploc bag and rushed to the train station to pick him up after work.Â I handed him the baggie, and he gave me a high-five! He hugged me too, of course, but we were so taken off guard.”
A source close to the couple says they’re “so excited” about the pregnancy. Although they haven’t yet found out the baby’s gender,Â The Bachelor andÂ The Bachelorette starÂ has an inkling of what it might be.Â ”I donâ€™t know why, but I feel like it’s going to be a girl,” Schefft says. “I already have, like, 10 names, but I’m not telling!”
