Jillian Harris, star of the fifth season of The Bachelorette, is expecting her first child, she announced via Instagram on Friday. The 36-year-old and her boyfriend of four years Justin Pasutto both made announcements on their individual Instagram accounts.
"I can't remember a time where my heart has been SO full," Harris wrote. "We are over the moon, stoked, blessed, [sic] ecstatic!!!!! Harris, who first appeared on The Bachelor in Season 13, was previously engaged to Edward Swiderski before they broke up in 2010.
I can't remember a time where my heart has been SO full. A total dream come true!! We are over the moon, stoked, blessed, exstatic!!!!! Little babe, we CANNOT wait to meet you!!!!!! @slipperygoose @nachocilantro #16weeks (ps details on the blog if you haven't heard the news yet... Love you ALL for your love and support!!!)
Pasutto acknowledged on his account that people had been waiting for him to "lock it up" (meaning marriage) but the bundle of joy on the way is much more secure than a ring.
So everyone has been waiting and waiting and waiting and frankly I'm tired of everyone telling me to lock it up... I mean if you know Jill she will loose the ring. So I came up with the best invention ever for the love of my life. A little baby miracle in her tummy. Words can't express how lucky and blessed we feel to introduce a new life into ours and that our wish has finally come true. @nachocilantro on the other hand, isn't quite sure what that means for him but he's excited too.
Congrats to the happy couple!
