The 35-year-old fitness star, who placed third on Big Brother’s 19th season last year, revealed the joyous news with an excited social media post on Monday.
“Well, I’ve always expected the unexpected in my life as well as This particular year is usually no different!

After I saw the heart beating I couldn’t stop crying for most of the remaining day. This particular was intense. I’m excited to share my experience in This particular process as much as I feel comfortable.”
