Bachelor News: Single Moms Competing on New Season

It's Bachelor history in the making! For the very first time, this season's contestants include some single moms. These mothers will compete with more than 20 other women for the heart of Jason Mesnick, who also happens to be a single dad.

Four of the 25 contestants are single parents. Megan, Stacia, Stephanie and Treasure juggle successful careers, but they might have a harder time juggling the other females in the mix, including a Brazilian seductress and a gorgeous pageant queen. Mesnick, who has a son named Tyler, was dumped by DeAnna Pappas during the final rose ceremony on The Bachelorette in July.

A show rep confirmed last week that Mesnick has gotten engaged, but it's unclear who was the lucky lady -- or if she was a mom. The 13th installment of ABC's hit romance reality show premieres with a two-hour special on Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. ET.
