A Party Down South 2 pregnancy! Raven “Barbi” Stein and Bradley Mitchell, costars on the hit CMT show, are expecting their first child together, the couple revealed exclusively to Us Weekly. The very much on-again couple, who broke up in Season 2, will welcome the little one in early winter.
“I was living in Jacksonville and she called me crying,” Mitchell reveals to Us Weekly. “She came to see me and we decided to try to rekindle our relationship, which was going well. Then we were excited to find out we were pregnant and everything’s been perfect since.”
The couple doesn’t know the gender of their bundle of joy just yet, but will have a party for the big reveal. “When we find out, we’re going to have a gender reveal party,” Mitchell says. “Her mom and sister will find out and throw a party for us.”
Adds Stein, “I’m dying to know. I might need them to tell me before the party!”
Mitchell, 27, is already a father of one, so he has some idea of what’s ahead. “I knew I had one daughter that I already loved, and so I knew what to expect,” he dishes. “But I didn’t know how our relationship would be. Fortunately, we’ve been able to put all our differences aside.”
Stein, 24, says she cried as she told her beau the news, but he was incredibly encouraging. “He was happy and told me everything would be okay and that it was a new chapter in our relationship,” she says. “He was super supportive.”
The parents-to-be, who met while filming their show together, can both pinpoint the moments they fell for each other. For Mitchell, it was over their 4th of July holiday while “tubing down the river — when I realized our personalities were a lot a like and I saw how well she treated me.”
For Stein, it was halfway into their first vacation. “I started getting butterflies when I saw him. I was like, ‘Ewwww, what is this?’ Then I realized I really like this guy. I fell for him because he made me laugh a lot.”
Although they know that there’s one obstacle in particular they both face in their relationship — “stubbornness,” they both admit — the happy couple is excited for their new addition. “I’m super happy, and we’re doing better than ever,” Mitchell says in an exclusive video announcing the news.
