Melissa Rycroft Names Baby Girl

Here we go again. The Bachelor and Dancing with the Stars alum Melissa Rycroft is having a baby girl — we know that now, after a long round of teasing it out — and she told reporters at a Halloween charity event that she and husband Tye Strickland picked out a name for their daughter-to-be. "The name came to us pretty easily," Melissa says. So what's the name? "I think we are going to keep that little secret between us until she's actually here, though." Tease!

Tye says he "wanted a girl all along" and hopes the baby takes after his wife. "I just hope she looks like Melissa," the smart hubby tells People. "I look at all these pictures of Melissa as a baby, and that's probably what we are going to have." Melissa adds, "I just can't wait to meet her. I just can't wait to see what she looks like and who she's going to act like."

Mel made a name for herself as Jason Mesnick's initial pick on The Bachelor Season 13. After he dumped her (on TV) for Molly Malaney, she went on DWTS Season 8, made it to third place and ended up co-host of Bachelor Pad, among other TV duties. She's currently a finalist in the Top Reality Stars in Dallas contest.

Melissa married insurance agent Tye last December. She revealed her pregnancy to Us Weekly in July, but said the doctors couldn't give her a straight answer on whether she was having a boy or a girl. Then she figured it out, but kept the news to herself. Then last month she spilled the "It's a girl" beans on CBS' The Talk. Her baby is due in January and chances are we'll hear a lot more about it before then.
