Samantha Harris, former co-host ofÂ ABC‘sÂ Dancing With the Stars, is expecting baby #2! The pregnancy came as a big surprise to Harris and her husband, Michael Hess, especially after the initial pregnancy test came back negative. Keep reading for more details on their second baby, what big sister, Josselyn, thinks, and why Samantha Harris is frustrating her family and friends…
Samantha Harris and husband, Michael Hess, are thrilled with the news of a second pregnancy, but it came as a bit of a surprise.Â â€œItâ€™s so funny, at three and a half weeks, I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. Then I went to London and Cannes for shoots and [was] having a good time,” the formerÂ Dancing With the Stars co-host says.Â â€œEight weeks is when I finally had a couple of really nauseous spells, and my husband said, â€˜Well, maybe you really are pregnant.â€™â€
Samantha Harris’ second pregnancy test at eight weeks revealed that the TV host was expecting baby #2.Â Â â€œIt was a very wonderful surprise at eight weeks to find out that I, in fact, really was pregnant,â€ Harris says. Although Harris and her husband tried to keep the news from their 3-year old daughter, Josselyn, the little girl figured it out on her own.
“She very instinctually looked at my tummy â€“ because I was definitely popping pretty fast the second time around â€“ and she said, â€˜Mommy, you have a baby in your tummy.â€™ I was sort of caught off guard,â€ says Harris.â€œWe werenâ€™t quite ready to tell her yet, so I just sort of changed the subject. Then finally when we did â€¦ it was really fun and she was really excited.â€
Samantha Harris says she’s feeling “fantastic” with her second pregnancy and she and her husband are thrilled to welcome a son or daughter this winter. They’ve decided, however, not to find out the baby’s genderÂ â€œmuch to the frustration” of their family and friends.Â â€œWe didnâ€™t find out beforehand with Josselyn,â€ she explains. â€œWe loved having that last possible real surprise that life can offer, so weâ€™re going that same route.â€
