Time to prep the nursery! Melissa Rycroft announced her second pregnancy on Good Morning America yesterday morning, followed by posts on Facebook and Twitter.
“Sooo…It’s official, the Strickland Family is growing by one next Spring! Ava is so excited to be promoted to Big Sister!! We are so excited for our new little addition!!” the Dancing With The Stars winner and Bachelor alum posted to Facebook with a celebratory photo of the growing family.
Rycroft married Tye Strickland in 2009, just months after being jilted on live television by Jason Mesnick. The two have one daughter together, 2 1/2 year-old Ava.
Since her time on The Bachelor, much of Rycroft’s public life has played out in the spotlight. When she was pregnant with Ava, she was excited about all that entailed, telling Parade in a 2010 interview: ”We can go through it at home and then come out and tell people what we’re going through. It’s such an exciting time, and we were very excited to announce it and excited to find out all the little things of what it looks like, is it going to be a boy or a girl, what we’re going to do with the nursery and all those big life changing events.”
