By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 07/15/2014
Renee Oteri has announced she's pregnant with her second child less than four months after marrying her longtime love Bracy Maynard.
"We're so excited!" the eighteenth-seasonThe Bachelor bachelorette toldPeople. "Bracy is already paranoid -- always checking in and making sure I'm okay. He's in dad mode."
This is Oteri's first child with Maynard, whom she wed in March only three short weeks after getting engaged. Oteri, who has a nine-year-old son Ben from her previous marriage, is reportedly three months along in her pregnancy and due January 19 of next year.
"I'm feeling good," Oteri told the magazine of her experience thus far with morning sickness. "We just had an appointment and this baby will not sit still! I keep calling her a she but we don't know the sex yet. I can't wait to find out."
Ben is reportedly "hoping for a boy," however, if that doesn't happen, he may not be out of luck.
"We want more kids," Oteri, a real estate agent, told People. "We're going to try for another after this one!"
Oteri competed for Juan Pablo Galavis' heart but got sent home right after he visited her hometown in Sarasota, FL, and met her family. Her elimination was filmed in October 2013 although the episode didn't air until February.
Maynard was reportedly a childhood best friend of Oteri's and also her first kiss. The pair actually dated after Oteri had divorced her ex-husband in 2008 following four years of marriage.
