Melissa Rycroft just can’t contain her baby joy! Shortly after revealing on Good Morning America that she and husband Tye Strickland are expecting their second child together, the Bachelor and Dancing With the Stars alum took to Twitter to express her excitement over her new little son or daughter-to-be.
“Clearly excited to share our big news!!!” she tweeted, along with a close-up of herself holding a Clear Blue pregnancy test. “A new little Strickland will debut this fall!”
A few hours later, she shared a picture of her whole family celebrating the news. The photo shows all three Stricklands — her, her husband, and their daughter Ava, 2 — wearing funny shirts related to the new baby.
Dad-to-be Tye’s shirt has a picture of a stork, along with the words “Look What I Did,” while Rycroft’s tank reads, “Cookin’ up a baby Strickland!” Little Ava, meanwhile, has on a pink top that says, “Promoted to Big Sister!” above a pair of tiny handprints.
“Thank you so much for all the sweet congrats!” Rycroft captioned the funny snapshot. “Clearly, we are very excited to meet the newest addition to the family!”
The former reality TV star, 30, was a contestant on season 13 of The Bachelor in 2009. She got engaged to Jason Mesnick on the finale but was dumped on the reunion special weeks later.
All’s well that ends well, though. Rycroft later found love with Strickland, whom she married in December 2009. They welcomed daughter Ava on Feb. 16, 2011.
