Back in January, Jenna announced she and David were expecting. In a photo shared on Jan. 26, Jenna showed off her baby bump with David smiling by her side as his hand rested on her stomach.

She wrote alongside the image, "Our hearts are so full… Baby Girl Stanley coming soon."


The pregnancy announcement came roughly six months after the pair tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony in Los Angeles.

At the time, Jenna shared details of her big day with Brides, noting that she and David had to "scale back" their guest list and remain "flexible" while planning due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"We were elated and so grateful that we didn't have to push our wedding and that we got to have the day of our dreams," Jenna told the publication. "It was such a gift that we were able to share it with our friends and family."

Flash forward to now and the couple have received a new gift to treasure with their loved ones.
