August 08, 2010 08:00 AM by Nancy Floyd


Melissa Rycroft, co-host of the upcoming competition The Bachelor Pad, is entering the second trimester of her first pregnancy and she couldn’t be more thrilled. The mom-to-be says she can’t wait to have a “big belly bump” and experience all the joys of pregnancy and motherhood. Keep reading for more details on what Melissa Rycroft is most excited about, what weird foods she’s craving, and how she’s keeping in shape…

Melissa Rycroft and new husband, Tye Strickland, were a little surprised by the news that their family would be expanding, but The Bachelor Pad co-host couldn’t be more thrilled to become a mom. Of all the joyous things about pregnancy, the thing Melissa is looking forward to most is getting bigger! ”I just have a little pooch,” she says about her body. “It looks like I’ve just put on a few pounds. I think that’s a state no girl likes to be in, so I’m ready for the big belly bump. I’ve also heard from my friends that once you get the big belly bump, it’s kind of at the point where you’re ready to have the kid come out and you’re just done being pregnant. It’s a short window to enjoy, but I can’t wait!”

Despite the fact that she’s looking forward to her baby bump, Melissa Rycroft is still trying to stay in shape during her pregnancy. The fatigue of her first trimester kept her out of the gym, but now she’s back to working out. ”I’m laying low a little bit — I’m just doing maybe 30 minutes of cardio a day,” she says. “I’m laying off the weights and I really want to start yoga and Pilates because it’s easier on your body when you’re pregnant. It’s not as hard on your joints. My goal is to keep a really strong core. That’s what I want to do.”
As for weird cravings, Melissa Rycroft only wants fruit! ”When I think about pizza, burgers, chicken fingers or foods like that, it really makes me kind of cringe,” she says. “My body wants fruit. I eat apples like they’re going out of style!”
