Bachelor stars Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon have announced the exciting news that they are expecting a child together after months of trying.
The couple tied the knot in August 2019 and opened up about their desire to have a child together in November of the next year.
Jared shared the fact that he is now “learning so much” as Ashley goes through her pregnancy, including finding out more about morning sickness and how to help her through it.
Who is Jared Haibon?
Jared Haibon was a contestant on the 11th season of The Bachelorette. He competed for the love of Kaitlyn Bristowe and made it into the final four before being eliminated just before the overnight dates began.
His Bachelor journey did not end there as Jared appeared on Bachelor in Paradise in 2015 where he first met Ashley, and then again in 2016.
Ashley has previously opened up about falling for Jared when they met in 2015. She said:
“I remember walking down the steps in Paradise and seeing him at the bar, and it was the weirdest feeling. I was just so gravitated and drawn to him. It was truly love at first sight.”
While Ashley felt a strong connection with Jared, the couple didn’t actually get together until three years later in 2018. They shared news of their relationship with the world in a YouTube video titled: “The Story of Us.”
Jared is an Instagram influencer and boasts over 681 thousand followers on the social media platform where he shares updates and snapshots of his life. He also hosts a podcast called “Help! I Suck at Dating” with Dean Unglert.
Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon announce pregnancy
On July 15th, Ashley and Jared shared a very special video announcement via Amazon Live and told fans that they are expecting a child together.
Jared told fans that the couple had been trying for six and seven months and had been “so good” with keeping on schedule with tracking ovulation. However, in May, they “messed up” and thought they would not get pregnant that month. It turns out they couldn’t have been more wrong…
Ashley shared with fans the moment she found out that she was pregnant:
“I was a little sore on the chest area and I just took a pregnancy test without even telling Jared, because I was like ‘it’s not going to say anything.'”
Jared apparently “did not believe” the test so the couple decided Ashley should take another one.
