“Oh, my God, you guys, it’s positive,” Roper, 32, said in the YouTube video she shared on Monday, February 4. In the footage, filmed on December 4, the reality star zoomed in on a positive pregnancy test on her bathroom counter before bringing the camera up to her face and holding it up.
“I’m so excited,” she said, blinking back tears and wiping her eyes. “Ew too close to the face,” she added, moving the pee stick a little further away.
“Baby #2 is joining our crew!!” Roper captioned their Instagram reveal. “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.”
While the Colorado native initially wanted to surprise Tolbert, 31, with their news, she ended up spilling the beans sooner than planned. “[Tanner] was pestering me like crazy,” she revealed to Us Weekly exclusively after the announcement. “I wanted to make it special, but then I was so over him asking, I just said ‘I’m pregnant, OK!?’ So not that special. I was like, ‘Shut up!’ I wanted to plan something!'”
The couple have told their daughter that she’s going to be a big sister, but she isn’t quite aware of what that means yet.
“She doesn’t understand right now,” Roper told Us. “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.”
