Melissa Rycroft is returning to reality TV.

Two years after her stint on ABC's The Bachelor (and as cohost of Bachelor Pad's season 1), Rycroft is set to star in CMT's Melissa and Tye: A New Reality, the network has announced.

The Ryan Seacrest-produced series is expected to premiere in April.

On Melissa and Tye, Rycroft, 28, will chronicle her move to Los Angeles to pursue a Hollywood career while maintaining a long-distance relationship with her husband, Tye Strickland, whom she wed in December 2009.

"Two year anniversary today! I'm such a lucky girl to have married my best friend, and someone who is such a good Daddy to our little girl!!" Rycroft tweeted December 12.

The couple welcomed their first child, Ava Grace, in February.
