Baby on the way for Jessica Graf and Cody Nickson! The Big Brother stars, who became engaged earlier this year, are expecting their first child together.
The actress, 27, took to Instagram on Monday, September 24, to announce her pregnancy, with sharing a lengthy message.
Alongside a photo of the couple holding a sonogram of the unborn baby, she wrote, "WE’RE PREGNANT! And I’m over the moon! I’m so excited to bring our first child into this life we have created together!"
The reality star continued,
I’ve been pretty quiet on Instagram lately. I’ve been avoiding posting stories and photos as much as I normally do because we’ve been taking this time to really enjoy all the great blessings we have in our life Considering our engagement was leaked before we could tell anyone, it’s been so great to be able to share our new addition with our loved ones before making this announcement!
As for how the due date of the latest addition to the family, she added, "I'm a little over 11 weeks and we plan on bringing our little angel into the world on April 11, 2019, just two days before Codys birthday."
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
Following the happy announcement, the television personality detailed when she found out the exciting news and how she told her fiancee in a statement to Us Weekly.
We actually found out while watch the finale of The Bachelorette. I wasn’t feeling well at all and decided to take a test even though I was pretty sure I wasn’t pregnant! I didn’t tell Cody I was taking a test. I just went and laid back in bed with him, pregnancy test in my hoodie pocket,” she dished. “The show distracted me so I had forgot it was in there until after it ended. I pulled the stick out and immediately gasped at the result! Cody looked at me scared and confused at the look on my face, when I handed him the stick! He immediately burst out into laughter and I burst into tears! It was the best surprise! We don’t know the gender just yet!
Jessica also revealed that the couple, who starred on The Amazing Race 30 together, “are having a gender reveal brunch the day after our wedding so that all our family and friends can celebrate with us.”
The Cody, 33, for his part, shared a heartfelt post on Instagram.
Alongside a picture of the mom-to-be cradling her belly, he wrote,
Every day, Jessica and I thank the Lord for all the blessings He gives us. And now we are blessed with the greatest gift… a child. We are beyond pleased. Thank you for all who have stood with us in support… and thank you to those who have opposed us to make all the victories worth it. I’m looking forward to Jessica being my wife and the matriarch of the Nickson establishment in Texas. What an incredible year.
