Jen Schefft is preparing for her first foray into motherhood.

The former The Bachelorette star and The Bachelor suitor and her husband Joe Waterman are expecting their first child in November, Us Weekly reported Wednesday.

"I was shocked. I thought it would take more time," Schefft told Us. "I took three tests because I didn't believe it was true!"

Schefft -- who wed Waterman last May after they met on a blind date in February 2008 -- said she didn't waste any time in breaking the good news to him.

"I put the tests in a Ziploc bag and rushed to the train station to pick him up after work," she told Us.

"I handed him the baggie, and he gave me a high-five! He hugged me too, of course, but we were so taken off guard."

While the couple doesn't know the baby's gender, Schefft said she has a feeling it'll be a little bachelorette.

"I don't know why, but I feel like it's going to be a girl," she told Us. "I already have, like, 10 names, but I'm not telling!"

Andrew Firestone proposed to Schefft during The Bachelor's 2003 third season finale, however after dating for several months, the couple split in December 2003.

Following her relationship with Firestone, Schefft went on to star in The Bachelorette's 2005 third season, which ended with her rejecting marriage proposals from both Jerry Ferris and John Paul Merritt.
