First comes love, then comes public humiliation and heartbreak, then comes love again, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage. That’s how the story goes for Melissa Rycroft, former competitor onÂ The Bachelor andÂ Dancing with the Stars. After being proposed to then dumped by former Bachelor,Â Jason Mesnick, Melissa Rycroft reunited with an ex-boyfriend, got married, and the couple is now expecting their first baby. Keep reading for more details on Melissa Rycroft’s shocking pregnancy news…
Fans ofÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelor can be nothing but thrilled to see jilted bachelorette, Melissa Rycroft, find love and happiness. The former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader was the last woman standing during Jason Mesnick’s quest for love and ultimately accepted his proposal, only to be dumped weeks later on national television so that Jason could choose runner-up, Molly Malaney. Jason and Molly have since tied the knot and Melissa Rycroft has found love on her own.
After her stint on The Bachelor, Melissa Rycroft went on to compete inÂ Dancing with the Stars while rekindling a romance with an old beau, Tye Strickland. The couple got married in December 2009 and they’re pleased to announce that they’re expecting their first baby. Melissa shared the news of her pregnancy on Good Morning America.
“Apparently Tye and I wanted to see how many life-changing events we could fit into one calendar year,” Melissa Rycroft said Wednesday onÂ Good Morning America, “from getting engaged, married, new job, and we are now pregnant.”
The reality TV star (who is slated to appear as a co-host of Bachelor Pad in August) says the news came as a big surprise.Â ”It was a shock. We weren’t even trying,” Melissa Rycroft says.Â ”It’s the most wonderful surprise in the world. It’s such a blessing.” The couple is due in February and plan to find out the baby’s gender as soon as they can.
