Fan favorite Bachelorette couple Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum are going to be parents. The happy duo announced on Wednesday, March 26 that they are expecting a baby.
Hebert and Rosenbaum are the first couple from The Bachelorette reality dating show to get married and now they will be the first on the series to have a baby, People magazine reported. The happy pair joins others on a short list from The Bachelor franchise to get married and start families.
“They are both so thrilled, J.P. is especially excited; they have both wanted this for a while,” an insider told People.
Married on a televised ceremony in December 2012, which was officiated by the show’s host Chris Harrison, Hebert and Rosenbaum got engaged on the seventh season of the series in August 2011. Shortly after their wedding, the lovebirds told People that they were already thinking about having children in the near future.
“Once Ashley’s done with her residency and we figure out where she’s going to work, then we’ll start thinking about family,” J.P. said. “But it’s not far off.”
Apparently, Hebert will be done with her schooling in June and the baby is due this fall, which gives the couple time to do what they had planned as far as getting the 29-year-old dental student professionally settled. It also appears as if the happy pair is going to have additional babies in the future, or at least one more.
“I want one kid and J.P. wants two kids,” Hebert told the magazine. “We’ll probably have two.”
