Ashley Salter


Ashley Salter is pregnant! And no, not with a baby onion.

The former Bachelor star who entered all of our hearts when she displayed her quirky personality (remember when she infamously mistook a pomegranate for an onion, or when the bird pooped in her hand?) while vying for Chris Soules' heart during season 19 of the hit show, is expecting her first child with fiancé Austin Brannen, E! News confirms.

"We're about seven months," the reality star confessed to Chris Harrison on Sunday night's The Bachelor at 20: A Celebration of Love. "I'm 29 weeks so that's not really seven months." 

When the evening's host acknowledged it likely happened shortly after her stint on Bachelor in Paradise, she replied, "Yah, this happened really fast." 

Although Ashley S. never received the final rose, she went on to find her happily ever after with her college sweetheart. We know, too freakin' cute. Salter met her future husband, who works in real estate, while they both attended Auburn University. 

The reality star revealed that Brannen put a ring on it (and a gorgeous one at that) in September 2015 through a series of Instagram posts, showing off the cute couple's engagement photos. 

Ashley even took a fun little jab at The Bachelor franchise, captioning a photo of her gorgeous ring and a bouquet of roses with "12 is better than 1 #roses."

While she had brief relationships with Nick Peterson and Dan Cox during her time on Bachelor in Paradise last summer, Ashley ultimately left Mexico solo, reuniting with Austin shortly after. And in a black and white photo posted on her Instagram, Ashley called Austin, "my one and only love." 

Along with being a fan-favorite, Salter also made an impression on host Chris Harrison, who called her "one of my favorite women to have ever been on this show."
