UPDATE: Alex Murrel has given the following statement to E! News in regards to the exciting baby news: "We are so excited to know we are having a little boy! My husband thought it was going to be a girl but I always knew it was going to be boy. Now the hard part is NAMES! I have none- no one tells you how hard it actually is to name the thing!"
She adds, "There are so many things they don't tell you when you get pregnant and having my close circle of friends around me with babies or who are also pregnant have really made this process so much easier," and also notes that their bundle of joy is due July 24.
There's going to be another member of the Laguna Beach family soon!
Former cast member Alex Murrel, better known as Alex M. to diehard fans, is pregnant! The reality TV star broke the news on her Instagram page, where she also shared a video of her baby's sex reveal cake. In the video a crowd gathers around Murrel and her husband, Kyle Mark Johnson, and it's clear tensions grew as Murrel struggled to slice open the cake. Eventually she was able to open it up to reveal that she and her hubby are having a baby boy!
"It's a ..... BOY Can't wait to meet our lil guy @kylemarkjohnson! Thanks to my seeeeester for making this so much fun for us @giggles_n_glitter," she captioned the video.
Kyle also shared a picture of himself posing next to his wife, who is seen holding the cut-open cake. "It's a boy!! One of the best days of my life! See you soon #littlebuddy @alexmurrel," he wrote alongside his picture.
Former co-star and current colleague Morgan Souders attended the reveal party with Taylor Cole and took an awesome group picture with their expectant friend. "Our group is adding another baby boy!!! #babyboyjohnson #cantwait," she captioned it.
The couple tied the knot on Oct. 25, 2014, in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony in Malibu. The bride looked absolutely beautiful on her special day, wearing a sleeveless, fitted lace gown with a plunging neckline. "The best day of my life #herecomethejohnsons," Murrel wrote with a kissy photo on Instagram. Her wedding day turned out to be a bit of a reunion, too, as former Laguna Beach star Taylor Cole attended the nuptials with Souders and Alex Hooser, who E! News has learned is also expecting a child.
Murrel was known as the drama queen of the MTV show, entering a now-famous love triangle with Jason Wahler and Jessica Smith. Clearly, Murrel since has moved on and found happiness with Johnson.
Congratulations to the happy couple on their expanding family!
