Just five months after announcing her engagement, former Bachelor in Paradise star Ashley Salter is reportedly expecting her first child with fiancé Austin Brannen.
Although many of her Instagram pics hint that she’s busy planning her wedding and working on a new business project, Us Weekly‘s source states that Ashley is indeed pregnant, and is far enough along to be “showing.”
Ashley recently attended Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert’s wedding, part of the Bachelor‘s upcoming 20th Anniversary special. Perhaps fans will be able to spot a baby bump when the special airs on February 14.
I’m excited to announce a project I’ve been involved with for a few years. It’s going live on #Kickstarter Tuesday January 26th. The world’s first instant #winechiller. Be the first to get a Cryos Wine Chiller way below retail price.

Ashley, who was a contestant on Chris Soules’ season of the Bachelor and most recently appeared on Bachelor in Paradise, dated Brannen in college and rekindled her romance with him after filming Paradise last summer.
Known as the “Onion Girl” on Chris’ season, it appears that most of her on-screen craziness, including her “Mesa Verde” comment during a zombie paintball group date, was prompted by producers for the benefit of ratings.
Off screen, Salter appears to have a enjoying life with her husband-to-be. The couple recently purchased a beautiful home, a new car, and — if rumors are true — they may be decorating a nursery soon.

Ashley announced last week that she’s busy working on a Kickstarter project for a product called the Cryos Wine Chiller. She claims the product is the first of its kind and is hard at work getting funding for it.
With a wedding to plan and a baby (possibly) on the way, it sounds like Ashley Salter is enjoying life to the fullest after her stint with the Bachelor franchise.
