'Bachelor' Stars Jason and Molly Mesnick Expecting a Baby
From bachelorhood to fatherhood: Jason and Molly Malaney Mesnick have announced that they’re expecting their first child together in late March.
The couple met on season 13 of the hit ABC reality show when Jason actually chose Dancing with the Stars contestant, Melissa Rycroft, as his bride-to-be. He later faced intense media scrutiny after one of the most controversial After the Final Rose episodes in the show’s history when he broke up with Rycroft and later proposed to Molly.
What does Molly have to say about their new arrival?
“Our family is getting a little bit bigger,” the 28-year-old revealed to People.
“I’m into my second trimester and I feel really good.”
Jason, 36, who’s already a father to 7-year-old Ty from a previous marriage, says Ty has already expressed excitement about his little brother or sister.
The happy couple, who wed in 2010, decided to spring the news onto Ty in an unconventional way -- by playing a game of hangman.
“The answer," Jason explained, "was 'Tyler is going to be a big brother.'"
“We played the game and he looked at Molly and I and said ‘Really?’” he happily confessed, “Molly made him a t-shirt that says ‘Big Brother’ on it and he’s really proud. He wore it to school.”
