In her corresponding blog post, Peyton described that her pregnancy is a "complete surprise."

She wrote,

Lyla James was an IVF baby and we went through so much to bring her into this world. I just assumed that was how we would create all of our babies.....boy was I wrong!

The reality star further explained that she and her husband "tried for years to get pregnant the old-fashioned way and it didn't work."

She continued,

How in the world is it happening now? I had a plan. I was going to enjoy the summer with Lyla James and then start the madness in the fall. God and the universe had other plans for us and we couldn't be more excited!! I feel a bit of empowerment that my body was able to do its job. I'm happy that IVF exists and I am also happy to have a different experience this time around.

As for the sex/gender of the unborn baby, the Peyton claimed the two are "going to wait to be surprised."

Confirming their second baby is due on December 20, the amazing married couple exclusively told Us Weekly,

We are over the moon to expand our family. This was a huge surprise as we went through IVF with our first daughter and just assumed that’s how we would proceed with future babies. Lyla James can’t wait to become a big sister!

Chris previously competed on Ali Fedotowsky’s The Bachelorette season 6 while Peyton appeared on Andy Baldwin’s season 10 of The Bachelor.

The couple got married in 2012 after getting engaged in June 2011. They welcomed their first child, a baby girl in November 2016.
