Manzo'd with Children star Lauren Manzo is pregnant with her first child. "We are so excited to be expecting our first child, due in early 2017," Lauren and her husband Vito Scalia told People in a joint statement. "What a crazy year it has been for us. Life is full of wonderful surprises!" Lauren, daughter of The Real Housewives of New Jersey alum Caroline Manzo, has been wanting to be a mother for quite some time now. "We had been trying to get pregnant for a while, and as soon as we stopped placing so much pressure on ourselves, it actually happened," Lauren revealed. The couple hasn't discovered the baby's sex yet but "do plan to find out" whenever possible. "I'm team 'girl' while Vito is team 'boy!'" Lauren admitted to the magazine. The reality TV star and Vito tied the knot in July 2015, two years after getting engaged. Lauren confessed to Vito in July that she was nervous about the fact she hadn't gotten pregnant yet, according to People. Manzo'd with Children currently airs on Sunday nights at 9PM ET\/PT on Bravo.
