Congrats! Ali Fedotowsky is pregnant and expecting her first child with fiancé Kevin Manno, Us Weekly exclusively confirms.
“We are so thrilled that we are going to be parents! We’ve been pretty vocal about our desire to start a family as soon as possible and feel incredibly lucky to be able to share that we have a little one on the way!” Fedotowsky and Manno tell Us. “You see, last year, when we started planning our wedding, we couldn’t find any good ring-bearers or flower girls, so we decided to make our own. Ha! Kidding. But really, we are so ready to be parents and already love our little one more than we could have possibly imagined.”
“People always say that pregnancy is a miracle,” the host and Bachelorette alum adds in an exclusive statement. “I had NO IDEA what they truly meant until now. I am in awe by my body every day and blown away at every ultrasound. I think, How the heck did we make that?! How incredible! Oh, wait, I know how we made it. ;)”
The former E! News host — who plans to blog throughout her pregnancy on AliLuvs.com — has had babies on the brain for a while. “I would have had a baby yesterday,” Fedotowsky told Us last month while gushing about friend Hayley Duff’s baby girl. “Hayley’s baby, Ryan, is the cutest baby in the whole world, and after she had Ryan, I was like, ‘I’m ready!’ As soon as Kevin met Ryan, he was like, ‘We’re ready!’ Who knows!”
The happy couple announced they were engaged this past September. “9.2.15 #MrsManno @kevinmanno,” Fedotowsky, 31, shared with her followers on Instagram, alongside a picture of her new bling and the radio host, 32.
“So excited to share that Kevin asked me to be his wife and I said YES!!! No actually, I screamed yes. Ha!” she later shared about the proposal on her blog, Ali Luvs. “He proposed yesterday and we had the most beautiful, magical day with our closest friends and can’t wait to celebrate with family back home. Love, the future Mrs. Manno.”
The couple told Us they plan on inviting Fedotowsky’s Bachelor Nation pals to their wedding, including Jillian Harris, Desiree and Chris Siegfried, and Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici.
Fedotowsky and Manno were good pals prior to confirming to Us that they were an item in May 2014.
