She’s coming clean! Nine years after she appeared on MTV’s smash hit Laguna Beach, Christina Sinclair (formerly Schuller) has announced that she’s expecting her first child with husband Chad Sinclair. She married Chad in August 2011.
The 27-year-old former reality star now is a fitness instructor in California and runs the blog Beach Babe Fitness where she made the big announcement.
“It’s time to spill the beans… I’m having a baby in May!” she wrote on her site. “This is wayyy harder than I thought it was going to be. Luckily I haven’t felt too nauseous, but the way I like to explain the way I feel on a daily basis is that I’m hungover 24/7 but obviously haven’t been drinking…. ya it sucks.”
Sinclair was billed on the reality show as the “reverend’s daughter.” Her father, Robert A. Schuller, was a minister on the Hour of Power weekly television program broadcast from the Crystal Cathedral in Orange County, Calif.
She and her friend Morgan Olson (now Smith) were often filmed together for the show, and in the spring break episode, they travelled to New York where Sinclair had a Broadway audition.
After her stint on Laguna, Sinclair graduated from the University of Southern California and tried her hand at acting, but ultimately decided her passion was in fitness and nutrition.
She is not the first Laguna alum to welcome a child. In August 2012, Kristin Cavallari welcomed son Camden with now-husband Jay Cutler. And on Oct. 30, Us Weekly confirmed that the reality star-turned-fashion designer is pregnant with her second child.
