‘Bachelor’ Alum Renee Oteri Is Pregnant & Can’t Wait To Welcome Her Third Child — PHOTO
Well, it must officially be Bachelor baby season, because yet another former contestant is expecting! On Monday, former Bachelor star Renee Oteri announced that she's expecting her third baby (her second with husband Bracy Maynard) and it seems like she couldn't be more excited about her growing family. She broke the news with a seriously gorgeous Instagram photo featuring a silhouette of her baby bump, and if this is any indication of future posts, get ready for the most beautiful baby pics you've ever seen.
And according to what Oteri told Wetpaint, this pregnancy has been a long time coming. She and Maynard decided they wanted to try for another baby as soon as possible after her second son, Jax, was born in early 2015, and likes the idea that he and his new little brother or sister will be so close in age. Plus, it sounds like her oldest son, Ben, who's now 10, is super excited to be a big brother again, and Oteri said that since he and Jax are "best buds," she expects more of the same with her new little one.
Honestly, with a pregnancy announcement that looks like this, I cannot wait for the family portraits that are to come.
Oteri and Maynard are so ready for this baby that they already have a few potential names picked out, even though they don't know the sex yet. "We really like the name Blake if it’s a girl, and Mason if it’s a boy,” Oteri, who appeared on Juan Pablo Galavis' season of The Bachelor, said. “I’m making it sound like we’ve got it narrowed down here, but that’s definitely not the case. We have, like, 15 names for boys and the same for girls. These are just our favorites… this week!”
What else has Oteri been up to since The Bachelor, besides procreating? According to her Instagram posts, she's living a beautiful life in Florida with her family. Her days are filled with hanging out with her kids and husband, a recent vacation to hawaii that included plenty of snorkeling, and a healthy helping of Star Wars obsessing, something we've all been doing since The Force Awakens came out in December.
And yes, Jax is huge these days, and yes, he is still the cutest baby ever.
Huge congrats to Oteri and Maynard on this one. I can't wait to see the baby after he or she is born. No matter what happens, it's obvious that this kid is already so loved.
