Little Ben's going to be a big brother! Renee Oteri, a finalist from Juan Pablo Galavis' season of The Bachelor, is expecting her second baby boy.
The photographer, 32, announced her first pregnancy with husband Bracy Maynard (she's already mom to son Ben, 9, from a previous relationship) in July. In March, the former reality star tied the knot with ex-military man Maynard in a court house ceremony.
Then on Saturday, Aug. 23, Oteri and Maynard hosted a belated wedding reception with 120 of their closest friends and family at the Hyatt Regency in Sarasota, Florida. Ninety percent of their reception guests came from out of town, and got a special treat when the baby's gender was revealed.
"No one knew until last night," Oteri told Us Weekly. "We wanted everyone to be involved in the gender reveal, kind of like New Years and the Fourth of July combined."
After a big countdown, the couple set off poppers with blue confetti as the crowd cheered. Prior the big reveal, Oteri had told Us that her son Ben definitely had an opinion on his new sibling.
"He's excited but only interested in a little brother," she said. Wish granted!
