Another Bachelor Nation baby! Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad alum Michael Stagliano is expecting his first child, a baby boy due in early November, with his wife, Emily Tuchscherer, Us Weekly can confirm.
"She has been blessed with a nice easy pregnancy so far,” Stagliano, who vied for Jillian Harris’ heart on season 5 of The Bachelorette in 2009, tells Us. "Some fatigue in the afternoon, a new deep love for ice cream and S’mores and zero morning sickness. And she's in her second trimester.” In early April, Stagliano shared a photo of the expectant couple on Instagram, where Tuchscherer showed just a hint of a baby bump.
The 32-year-old explained that spending time around his identical twin brother’s two children made him feel ready to start a family. His twin, Stephen Stagliano, is married to former Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas, and the pair share 2-year-old daughter Addison and 2-month old son Austin.
"Emily and I talked about having kids early in our relationship, then when Steve and DeAnna had Addison, and now Austin, we were so excited to start our own Stag Clan!” the Bachelor Pad season 2 winner said. "Especially because of my connection with Addison. We are best friends. I love her so much; it's hard to grasp that I could love my own child ten times more than that!” he tells Us.
While Michael originally hoped for a baby girl because of his love for Addison, now he couldn’t be more excited to have a son. “That very quickly went away once Emily started coming home with little baby boy clothes. I want to teach him how to play sports, but that's, like, six years off,” he says.
Michael met his now-wife back in 2012 on Memorial Day in Chicago. They married almost exactly two years ago in a ceremony in the Windy City.
