Season 13 Bachelor, Jason Mesnick and wife, Molly have escaped the infamous Bachelor curse and proudly announce they’re having a baby! “Our family is getting a little bigger!” Molly tells People. “I’m into my second trimester and I feel really good.”
It was a close call for Jason and Molly. During the final rose ceremony, Jason chose Melissa Rycroft and broke Molly’s heart. But it didn’t take him long to see the error of his ways. On the Bachelor reunion show, he publicly ditched Melissa and asked Molly to take a second chance at love with him. She agreed and the couple later wed in February 2010.
Shortly after the wedding, the couple announced their desire to have kids saying, “At some point we’ll have kids.” Now, more than two years later, they are expecting their first child together.
According to In Touch, Jason took to Twitter with the exciting news and gushed, “Yes its true! WAHOOOOOOO!!! Molly is going to be a MOM and TY a BIG BROTHER! YIPPEEEEEEE!”
Jason has a 7-year-old-son, Tyler from a previous marriage who has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of a little brother or sister. “He’s been so excited to be a big brother,” Jason explains.
Jason said the couple decided to surprise young Tyler with the baby news over a game of hangman using “Tyler is going to be a big brother” as the answer. “Molly made him a t-shirt that says ‘Big Brother’ on it and he’s really proud. He wore it to school.”
Jason and Molly fans have expressed joy over the couple’s baby news. Jason says, “Thank you for all the well wishes. We are beyond excited. Thank you thank you!! WAHOOOOOOOOO!”
