From Paradise to parents! Ashley Iaconetti gave consistent glimpses of her baby bump since her July 2021 pregnancy announcement.
The Bachelor alum and Jared Haibon wed in August 2019 in Rhode Island. Nearly two years later, the Virginia native shared an Instagram photo of herself pretending to puke into a toilet while the Bachelorette alum held back her hair.
“Baby Haibon is due Feb 10th!” the Bachelor Winter Games alum gushed at the time. “We’re very excited for that day to come! It’s so cool to think I’m creating a human that’s half me and half Jared! I won’t lie though, pregnancy has not been a delight for me. The nausea has been relentless, and I throw up multiple times most days. I knew the first trimester wasn’t easy for most, but I didn’t imagine my life to come to a standstill feeling like I have an extreme hangover for five weeks and counting.”
The Rhode Island native called his wife a “trouper” in a post of his own.
“Last night, she threw up five times throughout the night,” the restaurant manager captioned an Instagram selfie. “It’s been a very sick month for her. I feel terrible because there’s not much I can do except the occasional runs to the store for chocolate cake or to 7/11 for Slurpees. I love her very much. She’s a strong woman and I know Ashley is going to be an incredible mother.”
Iaconetti gave her followers the first look at her budding belly the following month, showing her bare stomach at 13 weeks.
“Is this a baby bump or the Wendy’s I had today with a side of pregnancy constipation? Vote below,” the journalist wrote in August. “Gonna be honest it’s probably more like constipation with a side of Wendy’s.”
Later that same month, she and Haibon shared the sex of their upcoming arrival — a baby boy. “His name will not be Tom or Brady,” the expectant star joked in her Instagram reveal, which featured blue outfits and a matching balloon.
Haibon was “saying … from the very beginning” that she was pregnant with a boy, Iaconetti exclusively told Us Weekly in August. “I feel like it’s a girl. I really want it to be a girl, but everybody tells me even if it’s a boy … it does not matter. Like, you do not give a crap.”
The Audrey’s Coffee House and Lounge owners welcomed their son, Dawson, in January 2022, with the new dad gushing via Instagram: ““Baby Dawson is here and healthy! Ashley is recovering and doing well! It really couldn’t have gone much smoother. He’s so sweet and beautiful and has been sleeping all day. Unlike his Mom and Dad who are on no sleep right now but it’s totally worth it!”
