Congratulations to this growing family! On Monday, Bachelor in Paradise alum Jade Roper took to Instagram to announce that she and Tanner Tolbert are expecting another baby together. Roper shared two sweet photos of her current family of three as well as a strip of sonogram pictures; in her caption, she revealed the new baby is due in August.
“Baby #2 is adding to our crew!!” Roper wrote. “We are overjoyed our bundle of love will be joining us in August! We’ve been dreaming of you for a while now, and you are already loved beyond imaginable, sweet baby.”
In the photos, she and Tolbert stand on the beach together, with Tolbert holding their daughter, Emerson. In the first photo, all three of them smile big for the camera, and in the second, Emerson keeps grinning while her parents exchange a sweet kiss. Roper and Tolbert have shared most of their milestones with the public, from their engagement on Bachelor in Paradise in 2015 to their televised wedding in 2016. Emerson even has her own Instagram account, run and curated by her parents. We’re glad this family shares so much of itself with the world.
According to Us Weekly, Roper and Tolbert have been trying for their second baby since at least April of last year. “We have just started to kind of, sort of try,” Tolbert told the outlet at the time. “We want to have our kids close in age. So, it was time to start rolling.” He also admitted that while Roper wants three kids, “I’m going to keep trying until we have a boy.”
Welp, it looks like Bachelor Nation just keeps going. This is very exciting news for this family and we’re so happy for them.
