The couple waited a few days before announcing the news to the world on Monday, March 11. “IT’S A BOY!!!” Roper captioned Instagram pics of the pair celebrating with their loved ones. In one sweet pic, they kissed while they were covered with blue streamer string.
“Baby #2 is joining our crew!!” the pregnant reality star, 32, captioned a sweet Instagram spread at the time. “We are overjoyed our bundle of love will be joining us in August! We’ve been dreaming of you for a while now, and you are already loved beyond imaginable, sweet baby.”
With a post of his own, Tolbert, 31, added: “By the looks of that smile… It looks like Emmy is excited to be a big sister… Baby No. 2 coming to an Instagram near you August 2019.”
“She doesn’t understand right now,” the Bachelorette alum said. “We’ve been talking to her about it and showing the ultrasound pictures. I think once it’s closer to the due date and the nursery is all set up, she might get a better idea.”
The reality star pair tried to get pregnant for 10 months before they conceived.
Wondering how they squeeze in one-on-one moments with a toddler at home? “Our motto is to take advantage of nap time,” the Colorado native confessed. “When the baby is napping, it is mommy and daddy time.”
Now they’re waiting for their little one to arrive — and Emerson has been extra entertaining in the interim. “[She] is super cuddly and affectionate,” Roper told Us. “I think that is a big characteristic of mine. … Her favorite thing to do is to take toilet paper, put it in the toilet, get it soaked, take it out and leave chunks everywhere. She loves to explore. They are like giant spit wads!”
