DeAnna Pappas is pregnant! The former "Bachelorette" and her husband, Stephen Stagliano, are set to welcome their first child together in the new year. On Aug. 28, PEOPLE Magazine confirmed the happy news. The couple had been trying to get pregnant for a little bit but now through with the first trimester they are excited to share their baby news with the world.
"We are so very excited! We had been trying for almost a year; we wanted this so badly," Pappas said. As for the baby's sex, the couple is undecided on whether or not they want to find out. "I kind of wanted it to be a surprise, but Stephen wants to be prepared," DeAnna added.
DeAnna Pappas got pregnant some time in May or June but she was able to keep the news super hush-hush until the time was right. Now that her morning sickness has subsided she is feeling "great" and really looking forward to meeting her new bundle of joy, due on Feb. 8.
DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano have been married since Oct. 2011. DeAnna had her heart broken on "The Bachelor" when Brad Womack sent her home in tears (on the season where he didn't choose either girl). As "The Bachelorette," DeAnna though that she had found love with Jesse Csincsak, but their engagement didn't last long at all. DeAnna was later set up with Stephen thanks to his brother -- and "Bachelorette / Bachelor Pad" alum, Michael.
DeAnna Pappas announced she's pregnant on Instagram too, tweeting out the photo above. Bachelor Nation is undoubtedly thrilled for #BabyStag!
