Baby No. 2 is on the way for former Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft! The reality star announced on Good Morning America Tuesday that she and husband, Tye Strickland, are expecting another child this spring. The couple is already parents to a 2-year-old daughter, Ava.
“Clearly excited to share our big news!!!” Melissa tweeted after making the announcement. The message came with a photo of herself and the positive pregnancy test.
The 30-year-old made a name for herself after being chosen be Jason Mesnick on Season 13 of The Bachelor. However, weeks later, during the After the Final Rose special, he broke her heart in front of the world by admitting he was still in love with the show runner-up, Molly Malaney (they ended up getting married in February 2010).
Meanwhile, Melissa picked up the pieces and got back together with her ex, Tye – -they wed in December 2009.
Since The Bachelor, Melissa competed on Dancing With the Stars twice, coming in 3rd place in May 2009, and then winning the show’s all-star season in November 2012. She’s also taken on a variety of hosting gigs, and even published a book about her “humiliating” public breakup.
