It seems like only yesterday that Renee Oteri Maynard was trying to win the affections of The Bachelor‘s Juan Pablo Galavis, and now here she is, already expecting her third child. She announced the news with a gorgeous picture showing the silhouette of her baby bump on Instagram.
That’s sweeter than a rose any day!
The new baby will round out her trio, joining big brothers Jax, 13 months old, her son with husband Bracy Maynard, and Ben, 11, who is her son from a previous marriage.
If this all sounds a little familiar, that’s because earlier this month another former The Bachelor star, Emily Maynard, announced she’s pregnant with her third child as well. It’s a Bachelor baby boom! Her children are similar in ages as well: Rick is 10, and Jennings is 7 months old.
Three definitely changes the dynamic in a family. Parents have to say so long to their one-on-one defense and up their game to manage the needs and wants of three children. It especially ups the challenge when you have a toddler and a newborn at the same time, as both of these ladies will.
As challenging as it is, though, there is nothing like a loving home full of laughter and children. There are also plenty of benefits to having siblings. And really, in the end, no matter how many children you have, it almost always feels like exactly the right number for you. And as her hashtag says, “Sleep #WhoNeedsItAnyway #ItsWayOverrated.”
