Everyone has been rooting for Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon ever since they stepped out of their respective limos to join Bachelor Nation. We've seen them hand out roses on Bachelor in Paradise, and soon, they will be handing out bottles to baby Haibon. The couple announced that they are expecting their first child together during an Amazon Live broadcast earlier today.
Prior to going public with the announcement, Ashley told E! News, "I'm pregnant. We're not pregnant. That phrase, 'we're pregnant,' needs to be retired. The woman is pregnant." And of course, Jared, the ever-supportive husband, completely agrees with the sentiment, acknowledging, "Yes, she is going to be doing 99.9 percent of the work during pregnancy. She's pregnant and I'm just here to hold her hand and help with whatever she needs."
And part of that help includes sharing what they want about pregnancy on their own terms. Jared said, "There's nothing wrong with talking about it whenever we want and feel comfortable," with Ashley adding, "I've been very raw and open ever since I've been on TV and I think I should continue with that. Plus, I think other people would like to hear about these experiences."
Ashley revealed that she's been having a tough pregnancy so far, admitting, "It's like basically having a hangover or a stomach bug for five weeks of this. It is just nonstop." Jared remarked, "Who started calling it morning sickness? She throws up in the morning, afternoon, and night. Everybody should know that. I know there are a lot of people going through what she is right now who would like to know that they're not the only ones. You don't hear enough about this. "
Ashley agrees that there isn't enough public conversation about the first trimester of pregnancy, crediting Amy Schumer for making her feel "so much less alone" thanks to her comedy special Expecting Amy. Ashley said, "Amy pointed out how in chick flick movies a girl realizes she's pregnant by puking in a garbage can at work and then she never throws up again and then the next time you see her, she's wearing overalls and painting a barn like everything is fine."
Ashley admitted, "It's very stressful to have obligations of any kind while feeling like this. I can't believe how so many people go through it and do it silently because so many people don't say anything in their first trimester. I wish there were more people who were open about this because so many people start sharing about their pregnancy in the second trimester. That makes sense since they're really excited and probably feeling better."
Despite the difficult times, Ashley said, "I am excited to be a voice who can honestly speak up about what this is really like at the beginning of pregnancy."
Aside from feeling a kinship with Amy Schumer about the beginning of pregnancy, Jared and Ashley have confided in some fellow Bachelor alums, "We've told Jade and Tanner [Tolbert], obviously. And Ben [Higgins]."Jade and Tanner, who have three children, even shared some baby shopping advice.
Ashley added that she shared the news with Becca Tilley and Jared revealed that told Dean Unglert. That's when Ashley said, "We have to call Nick [Viall] now. We want him to know before we announce. We wanted to be together when telling Nick, but we've been apart for the last week." Jared sweetly added, "He's the closest thing to a brother because we love him to death, but we argue sometimes."
Now that Ashley and Jared have shared the pregnancy, they are getting ready for their little one's arrival by shopping at Amazon. Ashley said, "I went through Amazon to find what was the most highly rated and read a whole bunch of reviews. That's what I think is so helpful with Amazon compared to going into a store, especially with baby stuff when you are so concerned about safety." And of course, Jared, a lifelong Patriots fan mentioned that he is excited to buy "some sort of Tom Brady little baby onesie."
While the shopping is far from over, keep on scrolling to check out the couple's favorite picks so far.
