UPI News Service, 05/04/2017
Bachelor in Paradise alum Jade Roper is expecting a daughter.
The 30-year-old reality star shared the news Thursday with People after announcing she's expecting with husband and Season 2 co-star Tanner Tolbert.
"I'm really excited," Roper said in a video after an ultrasound confirmed the baby's gender.
"This is the first moment it feels 100 percent real," Tolbert added in the clip. "I've seen her grow and I felt one little movement one time."
Roper and Tolbert competed on The Bachelor Season 19 and The Bachelorette Season 11, respectively, before meeting and getting engaged on Bachelor in Paradise. The couple married in January 2016 and announced their baby news in March.
"We're crazy grateful to finally announce a little secret we've been keeping," Roper tweeted March 8. "We're absolutely head over heels in love already!"
Roper showed off her baby bump in a photo at 17 weeks pregnant in April. She joked about her growing belly in caption, writing, "Baby or burrito? Or both? I think we know the answer here. #alwayshungry #unbuttonedmypants."
