From Big Brother to babies on board! These former reality stars started families after leaving the CBS show.
Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson announced in September 2018 that they were expecting their first child together. (The Marine welcomed his daughter Paisley in a previous relationship.)
“WE’RE PREGNANT! And I’m over the moon!” the season 19 alums captioned their Instagram reveal at the time. “I’m so excited to bring our first child into this life we have created together! … We’re honored to be adding the FIFTH Big Brother baby to the world! We can’t wait to meet you little one and we already love you more than anything. #MomToBe #BabyOnBoard.”
Six months later, the Florida native gave birth to their first baby girl, Maverick. The new mom gushed about the little one for her 1st birthday, writing via Instagram: “Looking at you makes me so happy because you’re the living and breathing embodiment of me and your father’s love. Thank you for making me laugh every day and being my human stress ball. You’re a bright light in this world and I look forward to seeing the wonderful human you’ll be come.”
In May 2020, the Amazing Race alums announced that Maverick was soon becoming a big sister. “I’m excited for our growing family, our kids are going to turn out great,” the Iowa native wrote at the time. “I know most don’t want their kids to grow up too quick, but knowing how well they will turn out, I’m itching to see what they accomplish!”
Daughter Carter arrived later that year, and it wasn’t long before baby No. 3 was on the way. “Nickson Addition 08.2022 @babynickson,” Graf captioned a February 2022 Instagram reveal. “A lot of you have already guessed it and it’s nice to not have to hide it anymore 😃 We prayed for you & now we can’t wait to meet you.”
Us Weekly exclusively confirmed Graf gave birth to daughter Atlas in July 2022. “From the second we met, we’ve always said we wanted a big family. On Saturday morning, we were fortunate enough to add another healthy baby girl to that dream,” the couple gushed in a statement at the time. “Atlas Ruby Nickson, welcome to the big world, baby. We’re so excited to see what you make of this life God has gifted you!”
Nickson and Graf aren’t the only Big Brother contestants to welcome children following their reality TV stints. Louise Cliffe became a parent in March 2017.
“Eli Mark Pilkington born the 1st of March at 3.30pm,” the season 12 alum captioned an Instagram collage. “The hardest day of my life was also the best day of my life.”
The model went on to welcome her second son, Ezra, in February 2018.
