Ali Fedotowsky announces she's pregnant again, having second child with husband Kevin Manno

Ali Fedotowsky has revealed she's going to be bringing her second child into the world.
The former The Bachelorette star announced she's expecting another baby with husband Kevin Manno via Instagram on Thursday.
"And just like that, life became a whole lot sweeter," Ali captioned a black-and-white photo of her family, along with multiple mom, dad, baby and dog emoticons. "#BabyManno #May2018."
In the photo, Ali, 33, and Kevin were looking down at their first child, 16-month-old daughter Molly Sullivan Manno, who was pointing at her mother's obvious baby bump. Ali was wearing a tight tank top and yoga pants at the time.
Ali and Kevin found out the baby's gender 11 weeks into the pregnancy because they just couldn't wait to find out whether they were having a boy or girl, so it will be interesting to see if they go about the experience the same way again with Baby No. 2.
Ali admitted to Us Weekly in July that she couldn't wait to have another baby.
"I would be so grateful if I was pregnant at this very moment. We are 100 percent trying," she had said while slipping some prenatal vitamins.
"It's no secret. I want to have another baby and you're supposed to take prenatals... I am more loving since becoming a mom. I care about people more. I care about strangers more. I'm kinder, I'm gentler. I like me better because I have a softer edge."
The blogger was hopeful that she'd have an easy time conceiving another child.
"We would love to have two, two years apart because that's what Kevin and his brother were and they are super, super close," she told the magazine. "Kevin and his brother are best friends."
Ali, however, had a very difficult first pregnancy. In 2016, she wrote about having debilitating morning sickness that compared to an endless hangover in her blog.
"I lost about seven pounds in my first trimester because I couldn't really eat anything," Ali wrote.
"I only ate clementines and dry toast for about a month between weeks 7-12. I remember breaking down in tears once because all I wanted was to want a pizza. It's like I knew I liked pizza, I know how delicious it tasted, but the thought of it made me sick to my stomach."
