Another Bachelor baby is on the way! Former Bachelorette Jillian Harris, 36, announced on Friday that she is expecting her first baby with her boyfriend of four years, Justin Pasutto. Jillian, who currently co-hosts Love It or List It Vancouver, surprised fans with her pregnancy news via a post on her blog and on Instagram.
“A total dream come true!! We are over the moon, stoked, blessed, [ecstatic]!!!! Little babe, we CANNOT wait to meet you!!!!!!” captioned the Instagram photo below.
Proud daddy-to-be Justin, 28, also posted a photo (below) on Instagram of the couple’s dog looking up at Jillian’s cute baby bump. His caption is everything.
“So everyone has been waiting and waiting and waiting and frankly, I’m tired of everyone telling me to lock it up… I mean if you know Jill she will [lose] the ring. So I came up with the best invention ever for the love of my life. A little baby miracle in her tummy.”
So everyone has been waiting and waiting and waiting and frankly I’m tired of everyone telling me to lock it up… I mean if you know Jill she will loose the ring. So I came up with the best invention ever for the love of my life. A little baby miracle in her tummy. Words can’t express how lucky and blessed we feel to introduce a new life into ours and that our wish has finally come true. @nachocilantro on the other hand, isn’t quite sure what that means for him but he’s excited too.

“I can’t remember a time where my heart has been SO full,” Jillian wrote on her blog. She went on to say that they “practiced” for a baby in late 2015 and found out that she was pregnant two weeks before her 36th birthday (December 30).
The couple kept Jillian’s pregnancy a secret for more than two months and even kept the big news under wraps when they appeared on ABC’s The Bachelor at 20 special last month.
Harris joins a growing list of expectant moms in the Bachelor family including Catherine Giudici Lowe, Ali Fedotowsky, Ashley Salter, Melissa Rycroft, and Erica Rose. Former Bachelorette DeAnna Stagliano gave birth to her second child earlier this week.
Is Jillian having a girl or boy and when is she due? Just like Sean Lowe and his wife Catherine, Jillian states that they are going to keep the gender a surprise. She didn’t reveal when she is due, but based on when she started “practicing” to have a baby, fans can expect to see the photos of their new baby early this summer.
