The former The Bachelor bachelorette -- who was one of the two women, along with DeAnna Pappas, rejected by Brad Womack during The Bachelor's eleventh-season finale in 2007 -- is pregnant, Life & Style reported Wednesday.

"This has been something I've always wanted: to be a mommy," the 31-year-old told Life & Style.

Croft and her husband John Badolato, a 39-year-old dentist in Scottsdale, AZ, are expecting to welcome a new baby boy into their lives.  The former bachelorette told Life & Style she could not be happier she's having a son with "the person [she] was always looking for."

Croft and Badolato wed in an October 2010 ceremony in Bora Bora and celebrated their marriage with a party back home in Scottsdale later that month.

Croft briefly returned to The Bachelor this past season when she and Pappas met with Womack when he returned as the star of the reality dating show's fifteenth edition.
