Melissa Rycroft, who was famously dumped by Bachelor Jason Mesnick after being chosen at the final rose ceremony, has finally found her prince charming. She is now married and expecting her first child with Tye Strickland.
Melissa gained famed when Bachelor Jason let her go on TV and then chose the first runner-up Molly. The two are now married.
Melissa became so popular by the viewing audience after she was let go by Jason, that she landed a gig on Dancing with the Stars and also became a co-host on the hit ABC show Bachelor Pad.
Now the reality star is expecting her first child and even knows what she will be having.
“We know the sex of our baby,” she says happily, although she and her husband Tye Strickland are keeping it a secret. “We can now narrow down the names to just one gender.”
With that question answered, Rycroft, who’s due in February, is enjoying a very easy pregnancy.
“Pregnant cravings are the one thing that I really want to experience,” she says, “and I’m not. My doctor says sometimes people don’t get to experience it. I have no cravings, no aversions, smells don’t bother me, no morning sickness, none of that. I’ve really gotten lucky. Not even heartburn.”
In fact, the only thing Rycroft, 27, has that proves she’s pregnant is a growing midsection.
“All I’ve got is the belly,” she laughs, pulling her T-shirt tight across her baby bump. “I like it. I was nervous about what my body was going to do, but I try to eat healthy and maintain somewhat of a workout schedule so that the weight I put on is a healthy weight. So far, it seems to be working for me.”
And what about the name? Will she give us a hint? “Tye and I have definitely been doing the name game, but we haven’t definitely picked one out,” she says. “We’re down to two possible names, so now it’s time to make a decision.”
And when they do choose the name, will they tell anyone? Rycroft just laughs. “I’m not telling,” she says with a cagey smile. “It’s a secret.”
I must say though, I thought her hosting skills on Bachelor Pad were horrible. I find her a bit annoying, but I am glad she is doing so well and is happy! Congratulations.
