By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 09/16/2013
DeAnna Pappas has revealed the gender of her baby due February 8 with husband Stephen Stagliano.
"We couldn't wait...so we scheduled another ultra sound this afternoon......and we saw a........GIRL!!!! #BabyStag," the former fourth-season The Bachelorette star tweeted Saturday alongside a photo of Stagliano placing his hands on her baby bump.
"Me & my baby daddy are staying in tonight. Getting used to these early nights. #itsSaturday #parentstobe #BabyStag #itsagirl."
Pappas apparently couldn't be more thrilled they have a daughter on the way.
"Stephen and I are so crazy with excitement about having a baby girl!" Pappas, 31, toldUs Weekly.
"With my mother passing away [from cancer] when I was , I think I have very much been craving that 'mother, daughter' relationship. I have such a wonderful 'mother, daughter' relationship with my mother-in-law that I am so excited to share this with my very own baby girl! I can't wait to hold her in my arms because I already love her so much!"
The couple announced Pappas is pregnant with their first child late last month. She told People at the time she didn't want to find out the baby's gender until the birth but Stagliano wished otherwise.
"I kind of wanted it to be a surprise, but Stephen wants to be prepared," Pappas explained. "Stephen's birthday is February 4. I told him all he's getting for his birthday this year is a baby!"
