Melissa Rycroft announced that she’s pregnant with her first child.

Melissa shared with Us magazine the happy news that she and her husband, insurance agent Tye Strickland, are expecting their new arrival in February.  "It was a shock. We weren’t even trying,  He wanted the kids right away, and I was laughing at him going, ‘No, not ready!’  It’s the most wonderful surprise in the world," "It’s such a blessing." 

Melissa was a contestant on ‘The Bachelor’ with Jason Mesnick and then competed on season 8 of ‘Dancing With Stars’.  The next project for the mom-to-be: co-hosting the upcoming ABC show "Bachelor Pad" starting on August 9.

Congratulations on the new baby and the new show!!
