DeAnna Pappas is expecting her first child with husband Stephen Stagliano.
"We are so very excited!" Pappas, the 31-year-old former fourth-seasonThe Bachelorette star, toldPeople. "We had been trying for almost a year; we wanted this so badly."
Pappas, who is currently 17 weeks along, said she is "feeling great" after experiencing morning sickness frequently in her first trimester.
Pappas admitted she and Stagliano disagreed over whether to find out the baby's gender before his or her arrival, but Stagliano apparently got his way.
"I kind of wanted it to be a surprise, but Stephen wants to be prepared," Pappas told the magazine. "The baby is due February 8 and Stephen's birthday is February 4. I told him all he's getting for his birthday this year is a baby!"
