The former Bachelorette, 27, played a guessing game with show stars Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert and Leah Remini, who presented her with blue and pink- themed baby gifts.

Selecting a pink blanket and a pink bathrobe from the pile, Rycroft announced, "Of the gifts in my lap, I think I am going to take home the pink!"

The audience erupted into applause, and Chen told Rycroft, "We wish you all the luck in the world. Congratulations!" The baby is due in February.

Rycroft also acknowledged the big news on Twitter. "Thank you all so much for kind words and support!" she wrote Wednesday afternoon. "I won't say too much yet, since some still haven't seen the show, but we're soooo excited!"

The little girl's dad is insurance agent Tye Strickland, whom Rycroft wed back in December.
