Jason Mesnick and his wife Molly are expecting their first baby together in late March. The couple met on the set of The Bachelor and although Jason originally picked Melissa Rycroft, he later opted for Molly and made her his wife. Now, two years after they wed, they are starting their family.
“Yes its true!” Jason confirmed earlier today via Twitter. “WAHOOOOOOO!!! Molly is going to be a MOM and TY a BIG BROTHER! YIPPEEEEEEE!” Molly later added, “I step away for 5 minutes & come back to a ton of love. Thank you! We couldn’t be more excited about the pint size peanut on the way!”
Molly is currently in her second trimester and feeling good. Jason tells PEOPLE Magazine that his son Ty, 7, is over the moon about the news — as they knew he would be. Jason and Molly broke the news to him during a family game of Hangman!
“The answer was ‘Tyler is going to be a big brother,’” Jason, 36, shares. “He’s been asking me for years. He’s always wanted to be a big brother. So we played the game and he looked at Molly and I and said ‘Really?’ Molly made him a t-shirt that says ‘Big Brother’ on it and he’s really proud.”
There haven’t been many Bachelor-created babies so this is huge news. Jason and Molly have broken the reality TV curse and are ready for the next big step. Good luck to them and their family!
