Michael & Emily Stagliano Expecting First Child — Boy or Girl? (PHOTOS)
This Bachelor Nation baby train will slow down for no one!
The Bachelorette Season 5 alum and wife of two years Emily — their anniversary is today! — are pregnant with their first child, a son, who is due this November.
“For our family, we did something a bit more special, but for our close friends, we’ve just been blindsiding them in conversation,” Michael tells People of the big announcement. “And the reactions are so great.”
This comes not long after the 32-year-old’s twin bro Stephen Stagliano and his wife, Bachelorette 4 star DeAnna Pappas, welcomed their second child, son Austin, in February. (Daughter Addison was born in February 2014).
“As soon as we got to hold [our niece] Addison, that gave us a little bit of baby fever,” the now TV writer explains.
Emily adds, “Austin was born in March and our little guy will be here in early November, so they’ll be close in age.”
Though it’s clear the couple has been very strategic about starting a family, it’s been clear for some time that the former reality star was itching to be a dad — just check out some of the cute pics of him doting over his niece and nephew on Instagram.
“I know he will be present and ready to help and making that kid’s day every single day with his smile and his energy,” Emily says of her hubby. “I know that our son will be very well loved because Michael’s [his] dad.”
So we have sex and due date, but is there a name already? Yes, just don’t expect them to share it anytime soon.
“We talked about our kids’ names a few months into dating,” Emily says, prompting Mike to chime in, “Totally healthy to talk about baby names on date number three!”
Congrats to the happy couple and their growing family!
