Former Bachelor contestant, Melissa Rycroft, is loving pregnant life. She and hubby Tye Strickland have even picked out a name for their baby girl (sorry–the couple’s keeping that info to themselves for now). What’s the ABC reality starlet’s favorite thing about being pregnant? We’ve got all the details!
Melissa Rycroft and Tye Strickland are enjoying every minute of life these days. The happy coupleÂ first revealed their pregnancy in July and now are sharing news that they’ve decided on a name for their bundle of joy. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until January, when the baby is born, to actually find out the name. Melissa and Tye have opted to keep it to themselves.
“I think we are going to keep that little secret between us until she’s actually here, though,” says 27-year-old Rycroft.
However, the couple did reveal that coming up with the name wasn’t difficult at all.
“The name came to us pretty easily,” Rycroft told reporters.
What didn’t come so easily was determining the baby’s gender. At first, doctors told the expectant couple that they were going to have a boy.
“It was rough!” Rycroft told reporters of the medical snafu. “I’m a very anxious person, and I need to know things, so to be told we have a 95% chance of having a boy, and then for it to turn out with the doctor saying, ‘Yeah, I don’t think so’…”
So what have Melissa and Tye done to prepare for the baby’s winter arrival–besides returning all of the blue stuff they likely bought?
“Um, nothing,” joked Rycroft. “We picked out our furniture from Bellini so we have the sheets and the decor, but we aren’t setting any of it up until January.”
In the meantime, Rycroft is enjoying all of the good things that come with pregnancy. Her favorite thing so far?: “All the free back rubs I get from my husband.”
