She finally popped!
Last month, Bachelor in Paradise alums Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert exclusively revealed to In Touch that they were pregnant with baby No. 1 — and baby Tolbert is finally making its debut! Jade shared the adorable update on Easter, showing off off her growing baby bump.
“Pr-EGG-nant. Happy Easter, friends!” the 30-year-old wrote in the caption and revealed that she’s currently 19 weeks pregnant.
Tanner, 29, opened up about the first time they found out that they were going to be parents after Jade took a home pregnancy test — and the results came back positive!
“Jade cried a little bit. I was just really excited,” he revealed.
The couple met and got engaged during season two of the Bachelor and Bachelorette spin-off series Bachelor in Paradise — after Jade unsuccessfully vied for Chris Soules’ heart and Kaitlyn Bristowe rejected Tanner on her season. They tied the knot on January 24, 2016, and footage from their ceremony aired on a special episode titled The Bachelor at 20: A Celebration of Love.
But their honeymoon phase didn’t last very long! Just two months after tying the knot, they returned to reality TV for Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars in order to help them correct some small issues during couples therapy. And luckily for them, their time on the WEtv series was well-spent because nearly a year after their stint at boot camp, they’re still growing strong.
Now they're so excited to start their journey as new parents as a team — and they’ve even come to an agreement on who will be in charge of which chores when the baby arrives.
“I’ll do every other duty if it means no poopy diapers!” Tanner said, and Jade’s OK with that: “He works a lot, so I’ll gladly take on most of the responsibility. I’m naturally nurturing, and I just can’t wait to have our baby.”
